      I loved these; however, I don't like messing around with the saucepan. So I put 1/3 c. water in a custard cup, added a couple drops of vinegar, then added the egg yolks. With my microwave, it took 25 seconds for them to be deliciously liquid and ready for spreading.

      Brilliant solution to the 'after meringues what do I do?' plus Michelle doesn't like egg whites! We do these on just thick toasted bread for breakfast or a snack. Salt is essential and IMHO white pepper is much better than black. Thanks so much for posting Regards, John
