Recipe Ingredients:

Orange Peel Meringue Cookies:
2 large egg whites
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon grated orange peel
Parchment paper
Vegetable cooking spray

1/2 cup apple juice
2 tablespoons powdered milk
2 cups sliced strawberries
3 tablespoons frozen concentrated orange juice
2 tablespoons brandy
2 tablespoons honey
2 large egg whites

Cooking Directions:

  1. For Orange Peel Meringue Cookies: In a bowl, with an electric mixer at medium speed, beat egg whites until frothy. Add cream of tartar and lemon juice; continue beating until thoroughly combined. Gradually add sugar while beating until stiff peaks form, about 5 minutes. Beat in grated orange peel.
  2. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper sprayed with vegetable cooking spray. Using a pastry bag, pipe the meringue into 6 (3-inch) circles onto the paper.
  3. Bake in a preheated oven at 325°F (160°C) for 15 minutes or until just beginning to turn golden. Turn off the oven; open the oven for 5 minutes; close the oven door and leave the meringues in the oven for 1 hour. Remove and cool.
  4. For Sorbet: In a blender, process apple juice; slowly add powdered milk. Blend until just dissolved. Add sliced strawberries, frozen concentrated orange juice, brandy, and honey; blend until smooth.
  5. Fold the strawberry mixture into egg whites beaten until just frothy. Freeze in an ice cream freezer following the manufacturer's directions.
  6. To Serve: Spoon the sorbet into 6 serving dishes and decorate each with a meringue cookie.
