These beauties are crunchy, soft, and incredibly delicious. They are super fun and easy to make but melt so quickly in your mouth. You can make these Meringue Fruit Baskets any size, shape (circular or square), and decorate in endless ways.
Preheat oven to 270 F (132 C). Beat egg whites and sugar on high for 10 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the mixer bowl with a rubber spatula, and mix again on high for 5 more minutes.
Pipe out the baskets in a circular motion using 1M large cupcake tip attachment.
Use a flat Insulated Aluminum Cookie Sheet to transfer parchment paper with piped meringue baskets directly onto the oven wire racks.
Bake for 7 minutes at 270 F (132 C), then reduce the heat to 220 (105 C) and allow them to bake/dry for 1 hour and 30 minutes more.
Then turn the oven off and let the meringues cool completely in the oven. (Do not open the oven door while they're cooling as the temperature will drastically change and cause the meringue to crack.)
