RECIPE: Lemon Kisses- turned to goo!

What did I do wrong? I made Roselin's Lemon Kisses for the first time yesterday to utilize some divine Meyer lemons from a friend. They tasted like little lemon meringues. The weather was very dry, I let them cool on the parchment paper on the granite counter. To take them to DD's house I placed them on layers of wax paper and then into an airtight Tupperware container. When I removed them several hours later, they tasted fine, but their consistency was a gummy goo.
What happened?

I don't know the recipe....but my guess is you didn't cook them long enough.

Whenever I make meringues, I leave them in the oven overnight so that they are well dried before I put them in a covered container. That way they are well dried.

Thanks Roselin, I think that must have been it. I knew to dry them for a while on the counter before packaging. I guess it just wasn't enough. I've really only made meringues once before, I guess my inexperience showed!

Compumom, you are very welcome.......hope you will try the recipe again and that it works for you. I put them in the oven, bake them the like the recipe says, then turn off the oven and leave them in there overnight.

Well I guess that my "last minute" personality showed. A little pre-planning is in order! ;-p

Here is something light and tasty.
Lemon Kisses
2 egg whites at room temperature
1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 c sugar
zest of one lemon
Preheat the oven to 300. Lightly spray` 2 baking sheets with Pam.
Beat egg whites with lemon juice and cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar one T at a time and beat until the egg whites are shiny and stiff peaks form.
Gently fold in lemon zest.
Drop 1 1/2 inch mounds on cookie sheets 2" apart. Bake 20 minutes or til cookies are lightly browned. Transfer to cooling rack and cool completely.
May substitute orange juice and 2-3tsp orange zest for lemon.

Can make a depression and fill with lemon curd etc.

These sound delicious. I love meringue in any form (except for coconut macaroons). I will definitely be trying this.
Thanks for the recipe.
