Recipes for All Saints Day & Day of the Dead - Huesos de merengue (Meringue bones)

Huesos de merengue (Meringue bones)

We could not resist! La Laguna Ahora, as every year, offers a series of recipes for the celebration of All Saints Day from the Mercado Municipal De La Laguna (La Laguna Market). This is for these delightful Huesos de merengue (Meringue bones), which, they say, are very easy to prepare, perfect to serve on Halloween or at children's celebrations.

Ingredients:

6 egg whites

300 g of icing sugar

a pinch of salt

juice of half a lemon

Method

With a whisk, whip the whites until stiff together with the salt and lemon juice. Then add the sugar little by little, continuing to beat.

Place the meringue in a piping bag with a large nozzle.

Place baking paper on a tray and pipe the meringue, shaping it into a bone. Shape it in a single movement: start at one end of the bone, work through the elongated part, and finish at the other end. In this way, you will prevent them from breaking.

Bake in the preheated oven at 100ºC for approximately 1 hour, until the meringue is dry and dull. Allow to cool and serve.

TIP: You can serve the meringue bones with a little strawberry or berry jam on top, imitating blood.
