Chocolate Meringue Rosettes

Chocolate Meringue Rosettes

 


Ingredients

Cookies:
2 tablespoons unsweetened alkalized cocoa powder
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2/3 cup granulated sugar, divided
3 large egg whites, at room temperature
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preparation

Make the cookies:

1. Position one rack in the top third of the oven and another in the bottom third and preheat to 300°F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. Sift the cocoa powder with the brown sugar into a small bowl. Whisk in 3 tablespoons of the granulated sugar, making sure the mixture is thoroughly blended and free of lumps. Set aside.

3. In a clean, dry grease-free 41/2-quart bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the wire whip attachment, combine the egg whites, salt and vanilla extract. Whip on medium speed until the egg whites are opaque, increased in volume and beginning to hold soft peaks. Gradually add in the remaining granulated sugar, about 1 tablespoon at a time in a slow stream, until firm peaks form. Using a rubber spatula, gently fold in the cocoa powder/sugar mixture in several additions.

4. Fill a pastry bag fitted with a medium star tip (such as Ateco #6) with the meringue.  Pipe the meringue onto the prepared baking sheets, forming rosettes about 11/2-inches wide at the base.

5. Bake the meringues for about 25 to 30 minutes or until dry on the outside. (The inside will dry upon cooling). Switch the postion of the pans several times for even baking.

6. Transfer the baking sheets to wire racks and allow the cookies to cool completely on the baking sheets. (These cookies are best eaten the day they are made).

I am getting married 1 week from tomorrow, but felt compelled to tell you about one of your employees. Ann. I have been e-mailing Ann for over 1 month and put a favor order together for my wedding. They arrived and I they looked just like the picture.The main reason I wanted to drop you a note was to commend Ann. From the very first e-mail until my chocolate was received her response time was just wonderful. I heard so many horror stories about dealing with an online company when you have no idea when they will contact you next. I never had any feeling of discomfort. Ann made me feel so at ease and comfortable the whole time...Ann was exceptional and in this day and age that is not common. Her customer service is beyond compared to others. - Fran"Thanks so much for the chocolates that were sent to my mom today!! She called me and said they were absolutely beautiful and VERY delicious!! :) I am very happy with my experience and would recommend your company to anyone. The customer service that you've provided is hard to come by - THANKS SO MUCH!! - Theresa B from
