Easy and delicious! I no longer make traditional meringue because of the raw egg issue, and using egg white powder makes it SO simple. Used with Sherrybeth's Orange Meringue Pie and should have halved the recipe as it really does make enough for 2 pies, but instead we had mile high meringue. Yum! Thanks, Dorel, for sharing the recipe!

I have been making this for quite awhile now and wasn't aware my friend Dorel had posted the recipe. This makes excellent meringue, just as good as that made from fresh egg whites.
