Snowy Mountain Peaks

This afternoon, I baked some Snowy Peaks cupcakes.  I thought they would be a delicious winter treat.  Mmmm!  Ü

Here is the recipe (as I revised it*), in case you want to bake some Snowy Peaks, too.  :)

Snowy Peaks

1 box white cake mix, plus ingredients to prepare mix
4 egg whites, at room temperature
6 tablespoons sugar

Preheat oven to 350
°F.  Line 10 jumbo muffin cups with paper baking cups.  Prepare cake mix according to directions on box.  Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling two-thirds full.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.  Cool in pan 10 minutes.  Remove to wire rack; cool completely.

Increase oven temperature to 375
°F.  Beat egg whites in medium bowl with electric mixer at high speed until soft peaks form.  Gradually add sugar, beating until stiff peaks form.  Pipe or spread meringue on each cupcake.

Place cupcakes on a baking tray.  Bake 5 minutes or until peaks of meringue are golden.

Makes 10 jumbo cupcakes
