  1. MMMMM. Have you been to Tartine? Heaven on earth.

  2. These sound (and look) heavenly! They would make a wonderful addition to a holiday cookie tray!

  3. Beautiful. Does get you thinking about Christmas baking. Is this good or bad?

  4. I’ve just discovered your blog and am in love! So beautiful. Love all your recipes and defo have some brilliant inspiration for new stuff…so thank you!

  5. Definitely a recipe I will try, but on another day. It’s raining here in Southwestern PA. I love meringues, but have always been a little scared to make them. I guess I’ve been afraid they would come out flat. Do you think you could figure out a way to incorporate chocolate into them, Tim because these would be great to satisfy my chocolate cravings without any fat?

  6. These are a holiday favorite of mine; though every time I make them, I wonder why I wait until the holidays!
    Andilynn – I also put mini choc chips in mine. I have also made them with a tablespoon or two of cocoa (which adds very subtle choc. flavor w/o the fat.
    Tim – can’t wait to hear about the rosewater/pistachio version – sounds delightful!!
    Love your blog – happy belated blogday.

  7. Mmm, meringues! An absolute favorite of mine. Crispy on the outside and light and chewy on the inside. By the photo above, you don’t even realize there’s a nutty surprise inside. I love to play around with my meringues/rochers – using different flavored chocolate or extracts/powders. Now that you’ve got the basic proportions above, it’s time to play! I’ll try using powdered sugar as you did here, I usually just use granulated. Love it, thanks!

  8. Wow.

  9. This is awesome…I have all of those ingredients sitting in my freezer at this very moment! And my kitchen is feeling a bit pathetic since I’ve been out of town recently. A batch of these will most certainly warm things up nicely.

  10. I don’t have much experience w/ meringues either, but these look lovely. I’m thinkin’ I should give it a shot too.

    This is the next recipe I will attempt. These wondeful pecan meringue kisses are my Saturday morinng treats at Chicago’s Green City farmers market. I always savor them as I walk around with my coffee, looking at the enticing displays of fruits, vegetables and other artisanal organic products. I am going to dip the bottoms in chocolate and have them as an elegant part of a mignardise plate. Thank you!!!

  12. I, too love meringues and like to make bigger, flat ones to fill with fruit, and a little ice cream or whipped cream. The most important thing about these goodies is to make sure no fat whatsoever gets into the egg whites. If you accidentally get some yoke in with the whites, they’ll never whip up properly. I learned this the hard way, so I have never forgotten!

  13. Just stumbled upon your site … love it! You have become my new favorite crush *blush* Keep cooking & keep feeding us

  14. Have just discovered your gorgeous blogs via my dear friend Denise from Chez Us! Once I drop the kids to school I plan to make a cup of tea and have a read and dig around some of these stunning recipes :)

  15. Welcome Chez Us and MsGourmet! Glad you found me.
    Peg, thanks for the tip on the egg whites!
    Martin, you’ll be glad you tried these! They’ll be especially good when pecans are available at Green City!

    When you leave out the nuts and form a big circle (springform size) with all off the batter, following all the other steps like you did, you become a really stunning pavlova. Put some unsugared or a little sugared whipped cream and the pulp of some passion fruits on top and you have a wowie dessert!

  17. ooo lala, I’m totally gonna make these!

  18. Wonderful site! I can tell it will quickly become one of my “get me through the work week” go to blogs.

    I’m jealous your meringues turned out so spectacularly on your first try. It took me 5 or so tries before I finally got something that resembled a meringue. I even wrote some haikus about my meringue-related trauma. (http://thincrustdeepdish.blogspot.com/2009/01/if-at-first-you-dont-succeed-try-try.html). I’ll have to give your recipe a try!

  19. wow, even if I read your blog regularly I missed that one, can’t wait to try them!!! ;) thank you!!!

  20. What’s the secret? These rochers look perfect- every other blogger (and myself) really struggles with getting this recipe to turn out something that doesn’t resemble dog droppings
