We know what it's like when you're browsing a site with as many recipes as ours. You find a brilliant recipe, want to make it again, but can't remember how you found it!

Woman's Weekly recipe Make your meringues into cute star shapes to turn them into festive decorations - will you be able to resist eating them off your tree?

Ingredients

  • 2 medium egg whites
  • 125g (4oz) caster sugar
  • Edible glitter in silver or any colour you like
You will also need:
  • Star-shaped cutter (8cm/3¼in in diameter)
  • Large baking sheet, lined with Bakewell paper
  • Piping bag and star nozzle
  • Ribbon

We used Wilton Edible Glitter Flakes, £8.99 for a pot, from HobbyCraft (www. hobbycraft.co.uk) or most cake shops.

Method

  1. Set the oven to 110°C/225°F/Gas Mark ¼. Draw round the star-shaped cutters on the Bakewell paper to create a template. Whisk the egg whites in a large mixing bowl until they’re firm. Add half the sugar and whisk well until the meringue is stiff and glossy. Quickly whisk in the rest of the sugar.
  2. Put the meringue into the piping bag and pipe stars on the Bakewell paper. Sprinkle with glitter. Bake for 1-1¼ hours until they’re crisp and come off the paper easily. Turn off the oven and leave the stars in there for a couple of hours to dry out well.
  3. Thread ribbon through stars to hang them on the Christmas tree. They should keep for 2 weeks.
