Whiter than thou

December 10, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

So after blogging about finding uses for the leftover eggwhites, the Chief Craftsman and myself got our hands dirty in the kitchen in trying to whip up something decent with the egg whites. After scouring various websites and youtube, we settled on making macarons based on this video.

We should have heeded the advice of the top comment for this video; “Easy to make my ass”. Needless to say, this was one for the failed experiment category.

Sticking to our french pastry theme, we next experimented with meringue. While not as complicated as making macarons, it still requires a a fair bit of delicate balance in getting the timing right, from whipping the egg whites, adding the heap load of sugar, right down to the baking time of these fluffy white cookies. As you can see from the picture, we left the cookies in the oven for a minute too long and it came out with a fake tan like those spotted by the chiseled abs Abercrombie and Fitch models. Looks aside, the cookies turned out surprisingly good. Crispy on the outside and light on the inside, it tasted good except for the fact that it is cloyingly sweet.  Perhaps if we can find a way to tone down sugar required to make these cookies, we may consider making it a regular feature in our lineup.

Till then, I’ll just use the whites as face mask.
