Brown Sugar Meringues

Brown Sugar Meringues


  • makes 30-50 meringues, depending on the size
  • 2 egg whites, room temperature
  • large pinch of coarse sea salt
  • ½ cup brown sugar


  1. In a glass or stainless steel bowl and using a hand mixer set to medium-low, whip the egg whites until foamy. Add the salt and continue to whip until soft peaks form.
  2. Add the sugar and turn the mixer to medium-high. Whip until the mixture turns glossy and stiff peaks form.
  3. Preheat the oven to 200*F.
  4. Place a #9 pastry tip at the bottom of a pastry bag or a plastic bag with the tip cut off (see note) Pour the meringue mix into a pastry bag or a plastic baggie with the tip cut out. If you don’t have an extra hand helping in the kitchen, place the bag inside a tall pint glass and fill it that way.
  5. Pipe the meringues into flat cookies, leaving a little “foot” tip at the end if you’d like. Alternatively, you can pipe them into rounds- whichever you prefer.
  6. Bake for 75 minutes. Turn off the oven, prop the oven door open slightly, and allow the meringues to sit for at least another hour in the oven.
  7. These are best the next day, after they have sat out overnight. To store, keep in a closed container in a cool, dry place. The meringues wiill keep for several weeks this way.

    Meringues never really cease to amaze me…how so much can come out of so very little! The brown sugar flavor sounds absolutely wonderful. And it ALSO sounds like the party was a hit!

      It was, thank goodness! They’re always a good stress, but a stress nonetheless. The brown sugar is so much better than white, i think, you gotta try them!

    Okay so again… why did I not get you this month? 🙂
    2. These sound so lovely and simple. I can’t wait until the next time I have a bowl of egg whites in my fridge so I can whip these up.
    3. This post filled me with such hope. Mainly because I feel a bit battered from all angles with things that haven’t happened to me or ways my life isn’t perfect… but, who knows where I’ll be in six months, a year… ten years. Thanks for reminding me how thrilling the unknown can be. I needed that xo

      They’re so easy, i almost wish i never learned how to make them!
      And i know-i try to remember that when I feel like things aren’t going the way i think they should… That this is all part of a path, and i don’t yet know how it will end. Keeps me a little more sane!

      So simple is right- once you start making them and see how simple, it’s hard to justify not making them all the time!

    I love meringues–you are so right, what they turn into is amazing. I have never tried brown sugar, I am adding it to the list.

    LOLing, the first time I read your post I missed the baby shower, only saw wedding, and then saw you made these for a baby shower and was astounded you were going to a wedding that also had a baby shower going on!

      Thanks! They’re a perfect treat for kids to make, I think. Only a couple of steps and some patience (which is the difficult part!)
