Valentine’s came and went this year and I have to admit it was a bit odd to have it at home socially distanced. That didn’t stop me from having a bit of fun in the kitchen. I ended up making meringue hearts.
There isn’t a lot that goes into meringue so you can quickly pull together the mixture and just start piping away. The key, however, is that you need to let these little guys cool in the oven for 6-8 hours. Meringue is notoriously fragile so this cooling period is quite important to allow them to completely dry out.
