       Title: Meringues (Plain And Chocolate Filled)
  Categories: 
       Yield: 1 servings
  
       4    Egg whites
       1 ts Pure vanilla extract
       1 c  Super fine sugar
            Chocolate Ganache:
       6 oz Bittersweet chocolate --
            Broken in pieces
     1/2 c  Scalded whipping cream
  
   Preheat oven to 225 degrees. Have egg whites at about
   70 degrees. Beat until foamy in an electric mixer or
   by hand. Add vanilla. While continuing to beat, add
   sugar one tablespoon at a time. When the mixture
   stands in stiff peaks on the beater, it is ready for
   baking. Fill a pastry bag with mixture and pipe onto
   parchment covered baking sheet, using star tip to
   create kisses. Bake about 1 hour or longer, depending
   on the size. Do not remove from the oven at once, but
   turn off the oven, open the door and leave them for at
   least 5 minutes. Cool gradually, away from a draft.
   Remove them from the sheet when cool. To prepare
   chocolate ganache, pour hot, scalded cream over
   chocolate. Blend until smooth. Cool. To fill
   meringues, crush the bottom lightly with the thumb
   while still warm. Fill the hollows with chocolate
   ganache. Yield: 3 dozen 1-inch Meringues
