Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 225 degrees. Using a 1 1/2-by-2-inch oval-shaped cutter, trace 12 oval shapes on each of two sheets of parchment paper with a pencil. Transfer parchment paper, pencil side down, to two baking sheets; set aside.

  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat egg whites and salt together until glossy peaks form. With mixer running, add sugar, one tablespoon at a time, beating until meringue is stiff and glossy. Sprinkle in cornstarch, vinegar, and vanilla; mix until meringue is just combined.

  • Transfer meringue to a pastry bag fitted with a 1/2-inch round pastry tip. Pipe a dollop of meringue in the center of each oval on parchment paper. Pipe meringue around dollop twice, creating a well to hold filling. Repeat process until all eggs are created.

  • Transfer to oven and bake until meringue lifts off parchment paper easily, 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack; let cool completely. Fill cooled meringue eggs with orange curd; serve.
