Yield: 6 Servings
|¼ teaspoon||Cream of tartar|
|Frozen vanilla yogurt|
|Whipping cream, whipped|
|Chambord or Framboise liqueur|
To egg whites (at room temperature) add vanilla, cream of tartar, and salt. Beat til frothy. Gradually add sugar, a small amount at a time, beating until very stiff peaks form and sugar is completely dissolved.
Cover a cookie sheet with plain ungreased paper (I use brown paper grocery bags). Spoon meringue onto paper, dividing into 6 equal mounds. Shape with the back of a spoon to form bird nest shapes. Bake at 275 degrees F for one hour. Turn off oven and let dry with the door closed for at least another 1½ hours. If meringues will not be used immediately, place into an airtight container to store, or they can be left in an oven which has a pilot light overnight.
Place meringues on serving plates. Place a large scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt (or vanilla ice cream) into each meringue, smother with fresh raspberries, drizzle with Chambord, Framboise, or other raspberry liquor (optional), and top with whipped cream (or whipped topping).
