Makes: 6 servings
Prep 45 mins Bake 35 mins Stand 1 hr
Meringue Shells with Fruit
Ingredients
  • 2  egg whites
  • 1/2  teaspoon  vanilla
  • 1/8  teaspoon  cream of tartar
  • 1/2  cup  sugar
  • 2  cups  sliced strawberries
  • 1  kiwifruit, peeled and sliced
Directions

1. Allow egg whites to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or foil. Draw six 3- to 4-inch circles on the paper or foil; set aside.

2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. For meringue, in a medium mixing bowl beat egg whites, vanilla, and cream of tartar with electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form. Add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high speed until very stiff peaks form and sugar is almost dissolved (about 7 minutes).

3. Spread or pipe meringue over circles on paper, building up sides to form shells. Bake for 35 minutes. Turn off oven; let meringues dry in oven with door closed for 1 hour. Lift meringues off paper and let cool.

4. Meanwhile, make Fluffy Lemon Filling. To serve, spoon lemon filling into shells. Arrange fruit on top of filling. Serve immediately.

5. Makes 6 meringues
