French Meringue Strips

This is a recipe my sister-in-law submitted to our Family Cookbook. I have not tried it, but I think it can go into the Zzar World Tour - Floozies French category. Preparation and baking time are estimates. The dough and meringue, when covered tightly, can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. I'm guessing on the serving size with one strip as a serving.

directions

  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar and salt.
  • Cut in the butter (at room temperature) until particles are the size of small peas. Mix in the egg yolks slightly mixed with enough water to measure 1/3 cup.
  • Sprinkle this over the flour mixture, tossing lightly with a fork until the dough is moist enough to hold together.
  • Form into a ball and chill while making the meringues.
  • Meringue: Beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar for one minute.
  • Gradually add the powdered sugar, beating constantly.
  • Mix in the vanilla.
  • Cover with plastic wrap while rolling out the dough.
  • Roll out the chilled dough on a floured board, pastry cloth or waxed paper.
  • Shape to approximately a 20 x 15 inch rectangle.
  • Spread on the merigue.
  • Combine the sugar, cinnamon and almonds.
  • Sprinkle over the meringue.
  • Press in lightly with a spatula.
  • Cut dough with spatula or sharp knife into 3 x 1 inch strips.
  • Place on ungreased bake sheet.
  • Bake in a 350 degree oven 8-10 minutes, or until they start to delicately brown.
