I live in Oakland, but make it out to Polk St. every so often for the giant, crisp-on-the-outside, chewy-on-the-inside, meringue cookies at Joe's Bakery. Anyone have any suggestions for similar meringue cookies here in the East Bay? Thanks much!
With it’s rich, cloud-like texture and stark white color, Italian meringue is a show-stopping complement to many desserts. For the ultimate finish, caramelize with a torch to highlight its peaks and valleys.
