I made 2 differant meringue recipes (I wanted red & green) this one and recipe#140150 both turned out great. To this one I added green food coloring and lime oil along with the zest for a stronger lime taste then followed the recipe they turned out great and really looked pretty on the plate. Everyone loved them and though they made a lot, they went fast. Thanks so much for posting.
