How to make meringue leaves with hazelnuts

Start by preparing the ingredients and working tools.

Roasting the hazelnuts in a nonstick skillet, just enough to bring out their flavor easily. Let them cool, then grind them well and mix with the classic breadcrumbs. Add breadcrumbs to loosen the hazelnuts and set the meringues in texture.

On a piece of baking paper, draw with a pencil 2-3 circles with a diameter of 18 cm. Place the baking tray in the tray with the side down. Start the oven at 170°C with ventilation.

When the egg whites have cooled enough at room temperature, mix them until crystallized. Gradually add sugar and lemon juice as well. When the meringue is firm, remove the mixer and continue using a spoon or spatula. Gradually add the hazelnut mixture to the breadcrumbs and mix in a circular motion from bottom to top.

Then divide the nut meringue into five equal parts. Spread each piece of hazelnut meringue inside the circles on a baking sheet.

Bake the meringue slices at 170°C for about 25 minutes. In the meantime, you can prepare the cream.
