  • In a blender or food processor puree strawberries; set aside.

  • Preheat oven to 250°F. In a large mixing bowl beat egg whites, cream of tartar, vanilla, and salt with a mixer on medium until soft peaks form. Add sugar, 1 Tbsp. at a time, beating on high until stiff, glossy peaks form (5 minutes).

  • Mound about two-thirds of the egg white mixture onto circles on parchment; spoon puree over mounds. Top with remaining meringue. Using the back of a spoon, lightly spread to edge of circle (see tip, above). Bake 75 minutes with sheets on separate oven racks. Turn off oven. Prop open oven door with a wooden spoon; let sheets sit in oven 1 hour. Transfer with paper to wire racks; cool completely. Store in an airtight container refrigerated up to 3 days.

Loved these! The recipe was easy although instead of putting part of the meringue then the strawberries and topping each with more meringue, i took about 1/3 of the meringue and folded the strawberries into it and then lightly folded it back into the rest of the meringue. This was time saving and turned out delicious. My only reason for only giving it 4 star is they are too sweet. That is an easy fix...I will use less sugar from now on.
