CHOCOLATE TORTE ROYALE|
Cinnamon Meringue Shell:
2 egg whites
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vinegar
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
Cover a cookie sheet with piece of heavy brown paper;
draw an 8-inch circle in the center. Beat egg whites, salt and
vinegar until soft peaks form. Blend sugar, cinnamon; gradu-
ally add to egg whites, beating until very stiff peaks form and
all sugar has dissolved. Spread within circle, making the
bottom 1/2-inch thick and mounding around the edge making it
1 3/4-inch high. For trim, form ridges on outside with the
back of a teaspoon. Bake in a very slow oven (275 degrees) for 1
hour. Turn off heat and let dry in oven (keep the door closed)
about 2 hours. Peel off paper.
