Strawberry meringue dessert

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
4 \N Egg whites
¼ teaspoon Cream of tartar
1 cup Granulated sugar
1 pack (3-oz) cream cheese, softened
⅓ cup Powdered sugar
1½ teaspoon Strawberry-flavored gelatin
½ teaspoon Vanilla extract
½ pint Whipping cream, whipped
1 pint Strawberries, sliced
½ cup Strawberry preserves




To make meringue: Preheat oven to 275 degrees farenheit. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper (preferred) or aluminum foil. Mark 9" circle or whatever shape strikes your fancy (a heart works well). Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, beat eggs whites until foamy. Add cream of tartar and beat until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar and continuing beating until stiff peaks form. Put small amount of meringue in a pastry bag and pipe around edge of your marked design on the parchment. Take remaining meringue and smooth inside your piped design. With the back of a spoon build up edge a bit.

Bake for 1 hour. Turn off oven and leave for additional hour - do not open oven door. Remove from oven and cool completely.

Preparing the filling: Beat cream cheese, sugar, strawberry gelatin and vanilla until smooth and fluffy. Setting aside one cup of the whipped cream for decoration, fold in remaining whipped cream. Fill the meringue shell.

Refrigerate until set.

Preparing the topping : Stir together sliced strawberries and the preserves. Remove meringue from refrigerator. Spread strawberry mix on top of filling. Decorate with reserved whipped cream.

Serves 6-8
