I wanted to experiment and come up with a little different twist on my classic meringue recipe that is simple to make. I just added a touch of lavender and purple food gel to these beautiful cookies for a slight touch of color and flavor. Lavender has such a strong flavor that a little bit goes a long way here.
People say that meringues is hard to make, but I think it just require a bit of patience. The benefit of using Aguafaba instead of traditional egg-white meringue is you can’t over-beat it (and of course it is cholesterol free…). The Aguafaba meringue can also be re-beat of it loses it’s texture so don’t be intimidated, you would be surprised how fluffy it gets!
You can find culinary lavender online, but it’s usually available at specialty shops and high-end grocery stores. I order my organic culinary lavender on Amazon and a bag lasts for a long time since a little bit goes a long way here.
