Quick Tip

Artisan Series stand mixer
Don’t have a hand mixer? Combine the ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer and set it over a double boiler, whisking until the mixture reaches 160° F on an instant-read thermometer, avoiding the bottom of the bowl, about 2 minutes. Transfer the bowl to the stand mixer. Whisk on high speed until glossy and tripled in volume, 3 to 5 minutes.
