I recall from many years ago that a major reason for meringues weeping is that the sugar is not beaten enough before combining. Anyone agree? Cay from FL

I have used a recipe similar to this one for many years. The only difference is that I use powdered sugar instead of granular. The powdered sugar dissolves more readily & it won't leave 'sugar beads' on top of your meringue.
