Washington State University Extension Teaches Us How to Keep Our Meringue-Topped Desserts Safe This Holiday Season

Raw or undercooked food can be especially dangerous for babies, pregnant women, older adults and young children. Washington State University helps us to better understand food safety when you’re hosting guests this holiday season.

The key to keeping your family and guests safe is heating up the eggs and meringue before serving. Baking your meringue-topped pies and cookies at 350 degrees for at least 15 minutes is one safety measure that WSU Extension suggests.
