Rosewater Pink







Inspired by the latest issue of Donna Hay which featured a meringue dessert bar I decided to make up a batch of meringues on the weekend. I put my own little stamp on the recipe and added a few drops of good quality rosewater to the basic recipe. The flavour was very subtle but it gave them the delicate aroma of roses. Then I added a little colour by dipping a skewer into some pink food coloring and swirled it through the top of each merignue. They were very pretty getting lots of oohhs and aahs from guests when I served them up with strawberries and whipped cream!

Sounds fabulous! I'm thinking of trying meringue for Christmas dessert this year.

What a perfect idea~ I have been thinking that florals would make such good gelato and ice cream flavors and maybe made with soy or almond milk:) My son make green ice tea and adds rose water. It is Delicious!!
