Orange Meringues

READY IN: 8hrs 10mins
Recipe by Mirj2338

Delicate and delicious. The long cooking time is for leaving the meringues in the turned-off oven overnight.

These were good: very intense and orangy. Less crispy and more chewy than my usual meringues (which aren't left in the oven overnight). Easy to make. I didn't use the optional chocolate chips or nuts, but either one would probably have been a nice addition. I got 37 meringues out of this recipe. A nice, light, fatfree "cookie"!
