    Lovely recipe, however I find with any meringues, if you add the sugar very slowly a TEASPOON-full at a time, whilst whisking, they come out odd shapes, rather than uniform ones, far nicer.
    Also I find that if you put them into the oven for 45 to 50 mins, than turn the oven off, & leave them in the oven until completely cold, they are all gooey inside.
