    Only 1 tsp? Does that make it sweet enough?

    So Veronica, with your recipe, do you just make meringues at the same time or something, to use up the egg whites?

    You can add more if you like nelle, just taste it and see - just depends how sweet you like it.
    I found though that if you are serving it with something sweet like apple pie, then it should be sweet enough. Careful about adding too much though, other wise it would work with the amount of egg.
