My meringue mushroom recipe on the Web site now
... Along with some other great ones.
One of the things I was doing on my vacation was making meringue mushrooms for the cookie story in tomorrow's Taste section.
Now Editor Amanda has posted a photo gallery with the recipes and pictures of each cookie contributed by Sun staffers. ...
I've written about meringue mushrooms on this blog before. I'm a little worried that the abbreviated version of Maida Heatter's recipe that I've adapted for my own use doesn't have enough direction if you aren't experienced in dealing with meringue. (The original recipe takes about three pages, but she's a detail freak.)
If you want to try them but haven't made meringue before, supplement my recipe in the paper by searching the 'net for "meringue mushrooms Heatter."
