Hello everyone, I hope you are all well.

The recipe for these Moon pies is from my book Just Sweet. Moon pies are soft vanilla cookies topped with a fluffy meringue topping, then covered in chocolate… so good.

Enjoy!

Moon pies (Yield: 35)

  • 6 large eggs, separated
  • 2/3 cup (150 g) regular sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 vanilla bean (halved lengthways and seeds scraped out)
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons (145 g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar (or a few drops of lemon juice)
  • 3/4 cup (100 g) powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 395 ˚F (200 ˚C).

Put the egg yolks into a mixing bowl with half the sugar, water and the seeds from the vanilla bean and whisk until pale and fluffy.

Reserve the egg whites for later.

In another bowl, whisk the egg whites with the cream of tartar (or a few drops of lemon juice) and whisk until frothy.

Add the other half of the sugar and continue whisking.

Sift together the flour and corn starch at least five times.

Transfer the mixture to a piping bag fitted with a wide circular tip, then pipe small rounds onto a lined baking tray.

Dust with powdered sugar and bake in the preheated oven for about 8-10 minutes.

Pipe a generous mound of vanilla bean frosting on top, you can find the recipe for vanilla bean frosting here.

I use a wide circular tip for this.
