With just three ingredients you can create the perfect Christmas gift.
· 2 large egg whites
· 100 g caster sugar
· 4 sheets gold leaf, optional
Preheat your oven to 100°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form. With the motor running, gradually add the sugar, one spoonful at a time. Continue to beat for 5 or so minutes until you have a shiny and stiff meringue.
Place the meringue in a pastry bag and pipe out your kisses onto your prepared baking tray. Bake for 35-40 minutes. Turn off the oven and allow your kisses to cool completely inside.
Once cooled, decorate with gold leaf or alternatively top with gold lustre dust or freeze-dried raspberries.
