Oreo Meringues

It’s National Oreo Day! 😀

Hip-Hip-Horrray 🙂 

Oreos, national oreo day

Growing up, Oreos were a household favorite. While in the grocery store, my sisters and I would ask my mom to pleeeeasse buy us a pack of Oreos. When she said “yes” we would be so excited to get home and eat them!

My sister Deana would eat and entire sleeve in a bowl of milk and call it dessert! 

Theres something about these chocolate sandwich cookies that scream ‘Americana’.

In an attempt to eat more ‘whole foods’ I don’t often eat Oreos as an adult. Buutttt its a National Day of celebration and I had to partake in the fun. 

I decided to make merigues, because I had some egg whites left over after making hollandaise.

Tips for making a meringue:

  1. Start with clean equipment. Any residue can ruin your meringue. 
  2. Use room temperature egg whites, as they will whip easier. If you are starting with whole eggs from the refrigerator, place them in a bowl of warm water for a few moments. Then separate the whites.
  3. Use even pressure while piping the meringues, lifting gently at the top to create a ‘tip’
  4. Bake at a low temperature to ensure the meringues retain their white color.
