Lavender Meringues

The recipe that follows is adapted from Olive Dunn’s, and they remind me of my magical day in her fragrance garden.
The secret to these delectable little morsels is long, slow cooking. As they bake, their fragrance fills the house.
1. Preheat oven to 225°F.
2. Place the flowers and granulated sugar in a blender container. Blend to a fine dust and sift it with the confectioners’ sugar into a bowl.
3. In another bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff and then beat in a drop of lemon juice. Fold in the sifted lavender sugar.
4. Drop small spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper or parchment paper.
5. Bake for about three hours, or until firm and golden. Cool on a rack.
Filling
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon dried lavender flowers, crushed
  • Confectioners’ sugar to taste
1. Beat the whipping cream and dried lavender flowers until stiff. Add confectioners’ sugar if desired. Place spoonfuls of the cream between pairs of cooled meringues, and serve the sandwiches immediately.
