Prep

Separate the egg yolks from the egg white. Use the egg yolks to create Dark Stragiatella Mud, hamburgers, or mashed potatoes. Heat the oven to 140°C. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

Cooking

Whisk the egg white with an electric mixer. First slowly, but turn up the speed after a minute or so.

If you lift the whisk attachment out of the bowl, the mixture should look fluffy and cling to it, while the peaks remain stiff and moist-looking

While you’re still mixing, add the sugar slowly, sprinkling it into the egg white from a spoon, until the mixture is stiff and glossy. This could take a while. No need to hurry.

Put the mixture into a large pastry bag and plot as many dots as you can onto the baking tray.

Put the tray in the oven. Wait. After 30 minutes they should be about done. They’re done when they’re dry from the outside and can be easily removed from the tray.
