Ice Cream Cookies (Meringue cookies) 冰淇淋饼干

I am sure a lot of egg white left after you made CNY cookies like example pineapple tarts..Save the egg white and aged for at least one day, and you can made this ice cream cookies (or meringue cookies). You can easily seeing peoples selling this ice cream cookies in the morning or night market, and the price is quite expensive. Why not try to make yourself ?

Last time, i made Mocha flavour but this time i add strawberry powder that i won from a giveaway that organized by Penang bloggers.

When i tried to followed my old recipe, don't know why it was not working this time ..After consulted to the bakery shop owner, she said my oven temperature is too low ( last time i baked at 70C using my old microwave convention oven) . She said in any baking, the temperature at least must have 100C..So she suggested me to bake at 120C..and this time it work ! Also i noticed that using aged egg white (cover container with cling film and store in the fridge) has more stable meringue than use fresh egg white...

SueSue said...

Hi Sonia, wanna check with you, you store the cookies while it is still hot? I dont know why meringue became sticky after 2 hours in the oven.

Jessie-CookingMoments said...

I'm here for the meringue cookies! Pink is my choice!

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover said...

SueSue, yes, you have to store immediately into an air-tight container even still slight hot, otherwise it will become sticky very quickly. After hot come out from oven, so long you can remove them, quickly through them into container and close tightly.
2 hrs is a bit too long, what temp you used?

mushloom, you can get the strawberry powder from bakery ingredients shop, and I think use strawberry emulco should be alright too.

mushloom said...

not sure y mine all turned out to be flattened discs. is it because i pipe too little? should it look the same before and after baking?

the taste is ok though. crispy :) think adding emulco makes the meringue wet. will try the cocoa flavour which makes use of powder to add flavour instead.
