    Meanwhile, in large bowl with electric mixer, beat egg whites and vanilla on high speed until foamy. Gradually beat in brown sugar until stiff peaks form.

Expert Tips

  • While meringue is typically made by beating granulated sugar into stiffly beaten egg whites, we use brown sugar in this meringue, lending a wonderful caramelized flavor to the topping.
