Ingredients

  • ¾ cup confectioner’s sugar
  • ½ cup superfine sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 4 large egg whites room temperature
  • ½ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla
  • cup unsalted shelled pistachios chopped medium fine
  • cup lightly toasted coconut for garnish
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped pistachios for garnish

Instructions

  • Arrange your oven racks so they are on the top third and bottom third spots in your oven.
  • Preheat oven to 175 degrees. (low heat for meringues, cooked for a LONG time)
  • Line two baking sheets with parchment.
  • Now sift together the confectioner’s sugar, superfine sugar and the salt.
  • Using your stand mixer with wire whisk attachment, combine egg whites and cream of tartar. Start on medium-low setting. It should become frothy.
  • Increase speed to medium high and beat until whites form soft peaks.
  • Now continue beating while gradually adding the sugar mixture.
  • Once all the sugar is in you turn it up to high and beat it until you have firm, glossy peaks.
  • Now add your vanilla and ⅓ cup pistachios. Blend for 10 seconds only.
  • Spoon meringue into a pastry bag. That bag should be fitted with a large star tip (#8).
  • Now pipe them onto a parchment lined sheets in the shape you want. Should space them about ½ inch apart.
  • Sprinkle on toasted coconut and the finely chopped pistachios.
  • Now pop them in the oven for 3 hours. I rotated the pans half way through.
  • Once the three hours are up, turn off your oven and leave them in there another hour.
  • Now you can remove them from the oven.
  • Serve immediately or store for later.
