Publisher Photo
As a change from heavy desserts, I like to serve crisp meringue cups filled with a creamy orange custard. The shells and filling can be made in advance; fill just before serving.—Deirdre Cox, Kansas City, Missouri

Nutritional Facts

1 filled meringue cup equals 320 calories, 17 g fat (10 g saturated fat), 157 mg cholesterol, 47 mg sodium, 39 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 4 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugars, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff peaks form.
  2. Drop meringue into six mounds on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Shape into 3-in. cups with the back of a spoon.
  3. Bake at 250° for 45 minutes or until set and dry. Turn oven off; leave meringues in oven for 1-1/2 hours.
  4. In a small heavy saucepan over medium heat, whisk the egg yolks, sugar, orange juice, juice concentrate and peel. Cook, whisking constantly, until mixture is thickened and coats the back of a spoon. Transfer to a small bowl; cool for 10 minutes. Cover and refrigerate until chilled.
  5. Just before serving, beat cream until stiff peaks form. Fold into egg yolk mixture just until blended. Spoon mixture into meringue cups. Garnish with orange segments if desired. Yield: 6 servings.
