Love comes to us all in one way or another, so it may be a good excuse for a romantic touch to our preparations with these sweet sugar biscuits and delight with a nice cup of tea or coffee.
Based on this kind of candy is a simple meringue, but providing more consistency to achieve a sort of dense glaze which, when dry, leaves us attractive as sweet snacks. Gourmands enjoy them at any time as a sweet treat, but I like to use them as decoration other desserts. They provide a nice romantic touch to cakes, custards, mousses or a simple cup of thick hot chocolate.

2. When we finished the sugar, add a pinch of pink coloring to tint the dough to taste, and a little vanilla flavor if desired. Start incorporating tsp of powdered sugar, beating to incorporate increasingly well until you get a thick and dense texture.
3. Fill a pastry bag with the dough, or simply use a spoon to go slightly apart forming small portions on the trays. Put the oven trays lowering the temperature to 200°F. Bake until they are dry, they should be hard to the touch, for about 1 hour. Let them cool completely before handling.
