Pink Sprinkles Meringues
1 cup caster ( superfine ) sugar
2 tsp cornflour ( cornstarch )
1 tsp white vinegar
1 tsp strawberry essence ( optional )
pink food colouring
Preheat the oven to 150C (300F). Place the eggwhites into the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until soft peaks form.
Gradually add the sugar, beating well between each addition until the mixture is thick and glossy. Sift the cornstarch over the mixture and fold through with the vinegar, strawberry essence, and a few drops of food colouring.
Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Spoon 1/4 cup of meringue mixture onto the trays. Sprinkle with the decorating sprinkles. Bake for 30 minutes. Turn off the oven and allow the meringues to cool in the oven.
