Last Saturday, while walking around the local market, I spotted this shop which sells a lot of traditional desserts. Yes, I am a fan of dessert and no, I am not so adventurous to try out all of it. My taste buds are customized to Malaysian desserts and not intending to change it yet.
While wiping away my drooling saliva, all of the sudden, I spotted this. The local called it Beze or Meringues or Russian Beze Cookies but I called it, the heaven of all dessert. Most of the dessert that I ate before are kind of too sweet, too fattening, too creamy and too ugly but this one is completely different.
This whole pack costs about ~RM4. Yes, it is not expensive. The uniqueness of this dessert is not on the sweetness but at the texture of it. It is crispy inside out and will not stick on your teeth too.
Once you take the first bite, you will definitely crave for the second one. Half way enjoying these cookies, I was wondering what if I am addicted to it and unable to get it elsewhere.
So, I decided to learn how to make it. The cost of making this is probably just few cents and it is not difficult at all.
2 x egg whites
1/3 cup of sugar.
1. Simply put egg white to the mixer bowl and start beating it on high speed. Please ensure not a single drop of water or oil or it will ruin the whole cookies making process.
2. Beat egg white until it form solid white foam about 3 times the volume of the initial egg whites. Then add sugar spoon by spoon and continue beating it until all sugar is mixed and completely dissolved.
3. Warm oven up to 210F . Use pastry bag to pipe the filling onto parchment paper (normally use baking tray for easier handling).
4. Put baking tray into oven and let it dry for 1 – 1.5 hours (this is depending on size). It takes longer to dry if it is bigger in size.
5. Let it cool down. Once cooled down, it is ready to be served.
Remember to put it in air tight container too!
