Taking the recipe from a book that my wife gave me for Christmas/Hanukkah entitled, "Eat, the quick look cookbook." I chose a very simple meringue made from 3 basic ingredients and literally whipped it together. This is a great example for kids. I needed to try it out today on my own to see how long it would take to make and how messy it got. I am happy to say this is probably one of the easiest things I've made in a long time. If all goes well, and the kids and I like what comes out of the oven, then I am going to do this with the kids.
