Meringue Squares

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

These are one of my favorites that my mother only made at Christmas time but they are delicious anytime!

INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):


  • Cream together butter or margarine and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition.
  • In another bowl, sift flour, salt, and baking powder together. Blend in to the creamed mixture, and then add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla to the dough.
  • Spread dough in 9 x 13 inch greased baking pan, and sprinkle chopped nuts over top.
  • In a small mixing bowl, beat egg white until stiff but not dry. Add brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla to the whipped egg white, and beat thoroughly. Spread meringue over the dough and nuts already in the pan.
  • Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 20 to 30 minutes. Cool, and cut into bars.
