Christmas was a blur to me after losing Otis and Milo and being sick myself so long.
I'm just now starting to play catchup.
I hope to post about our new dachshunds
on Dewena's Window soon.
I feel badly that I've totally ignored the Window
but the good news is that Bree and Mason
are busy writing it for me.
Before all of Christmas escapes me,
I want to show a pie I made,
the only baking I did for Christmas.
It was from Southern Living magazine
and was called Over the Moon Chocolate Pie.
They based in on our state favorite--Moon Pies.
It calls for a Marshmallow Meringue topping and
I totally goofed it up.
The recipe said to cook the egg whites
(in a double boiler) only until the sugar dissolved.
I'm paranoid about raw eggs so cooked it and cooked it...
There were no raw eggs in my meringue,
but it was like eating saltwater taffy,
yummy and good exercise for your jaws.
Next time I'll trust the recipe--
or maybe I'll just make the delicious filling
on top of that wonderful crust and call it a day.
Or top it with real whipped cream, I mean REAL, folks.
Have any of you ever made a marshmallow meringue?
And had it to succeed?
