Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

Nutritional Facts

1 meringue with 1/3 cup whipped cream and 1/4 cup topping equals 333 calories, 14 g fat (9 g saturated fat), 51 mg cholesterol, 85 mg sodium, 52 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 3 g protein.

Directions

  1. Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Using a pencil, draw eight 3-in. circles on a sheet of parchment paper. Place paper, pencil mark down, on a baking sheet; set aside.
  2. Add vanilla and vinegar to egg whites; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Beat in cornstarch. Gradually beat in brown sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved.
  3. Cut a small hole in the corner of a pastry or plastic bag; insert a #18 star tip. Fill bag with meringue; pipe meringue in a spiral fashion to fill in circles on prepared pan. Pipe twice around the base of each shell in a spiral fashion to make the sides.
  4. Bake at 275° for 50-60 minutes or until set and dry. Turn oven off; leave meringues in oven for 1 hour.
  5. In a large bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners' sugar; beat until stiff peaks form. Spoon into meringues. Top with pie filling; sprinkle with pie spice. Yield: 8 servings.
To Make Ahead: Prepare the meringues a few days before. Store in an airtight container.
