Brown Sugar Meringues

Brown sugar adds a lovely caramel flavor to the meringues. Good with whipped cream, as a filling sandwiched between the meringues, and drizzled with melted bittersweet chocolate.

Crisp meringues: To make the meringues crisp, turn the oven off and leave them inside until completely cool.
