Suggested Romance: If you don't have time to pipe the meringue could be spooned into 2-in. circles. Extract flavorings could be added to the meringues to change the flavor.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 13, 2013

"I used peppermint extract instead of vanilla which was tasty, but I think leaving them in the oven for an hour is a little long, they seemed to be too done."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 19, 2011

"To change this up, I added a good 1 1/2 tablespoons of raspberry jello powder at the point of mixing in the sugar and finished by topping the piped meringue with white decorative coarse sugar before baking. The gelatin mix added a nice flavor and color. (You could use most any flavor) These were light and airy and reminded me of cotton candy."
