Meringue Mountain

I spent most of the weekend baking cookies. My yearly baking of meringues takes a very long time to complete – and this year I did a triple batch, plus a single batch of standard chocolate chip cookies.

Some of these are being sent out as gifts, but most will probably end up in my belly. Because, duh. They are awesome. Especially with ice cream.  I sorta suspect I have too many still, though – so I’ll be bringing in some to work to give out.  I’m oddly stingy about that, though – as much as I like it when people enjoy the fruits of my labor – after you spend about 6 hours baking the things, (and 70 minutes of that is stirring in the sugar, thanks),  I want to make sure they’re appreciated. Or something.

(And meringues are an acquired taste, I think – too sweet for many, which is fine. More for me.) Incidentally, the mass consumption of said cookies is probably one of the reasons I didn’t sleep too well Sunday night – lesson learned. >_<

Anyway, a couple of brief announcements – the cover for the Carniepunk anthology has been released! It’s over at All Things Urban Fantasy if you want a quick peek – I’ll be updating my site here with links and such for pre-orders later on this week. (I’m working on small edits for my contribution right now, in fact  – exciting!)

Also – new Fox & Willow went up yesterday, so check that out when you get a chance.

  1. I haven’t had meringues in years. Mom always made them, and I never got the hang of it. Go you. I know they’re a bear. My big contribution to Christmas this year was a fudge extravaganza – three batches since yesterday afternoon. And now I’m done. Enjoy your meringues. (I’m on a sugar buzz of my own. Had to taste test the fudges, doncha know.)

      It’s really the only thing I know how to make well. LOL. I’ve got the recipe kicking around here on the blog somewhere if you are interested. 🙂 (Purloined from an old betty crocker cookbook…)
