E is for Eggs...

2 egg whites
4 oz caster sugar
coloured sprinkles to decorate

Preheat the oven to gas mark 1 (250 degrees F).
Line 2 baking sheets with greaseproof paper but not any oil.
Whisk egg whites with an electric whisk until stiff.
Add the sugar, 1 teaspoon at a time, whisking well after each addition, still on high speed, until all the sugar has been added.
Using two teaspoons, place small mounds of mixture (about 24) onto sheet. Dribble sprinkles on top.
Bake for about 1-1.5 hours, or until they can be lifted easily from the paper without sticking.
Turn off the oven, leave the door ajar and leave the meringues until cold.
