Because the recipe for the panettone (which was a total failure) was using only egg yolks I decided to make meringues with the whites. In the country house I opted for non electrical appliances in the kitchen, except for the blender, I knead manually and I beat my egg whites manually too. So I added a pinch of salt to 3 egg whites a beat them until firm. Then I added 70g of icing sugar, and 2 large tea spoons of matcha powder. It gives this shiny green mix. Then I preheat the oven to 110deg and on s cooking paper sheet I made small mounts of the mix. The shape and size won't change much, so you can decide easily for the size and shape you want. And I cooked until dry and a little hard, because I like my meringues soft inside, if you like them hard and dry keep them longer. It took about 15min for 4cm meringues. If you notice the edge getting brown is that the oven is too hot, lower the temperature to 100deg. 

Have a nice week!
