  • Total Time:
  • Servings: 8

Source: Everyday Food, July/August 2009


  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 package (5 ounces) meringues, crumbled
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) raspberries
  • 3 tablespoons Berry Puree, using raspberries


  1. Chill a serving bowl in the freezer. In a large bowl, whip heavy cream until soft peaks form. Fold in meringues and 1 1/4 cups raspberries. Drizzle whipped cream with 2 tablespoons berry puree and lightly fold so the mixture has stripes of puree. Spoon into chilled bowl; top with remaining raspberries and berry puree.

    The meringues are so easy to make, although they do take some time, are light and delish. Just egg whites, sugar and something to stablize the egg whites. They do sell them in the store. I'll try this recipe, looks really easy and good

    Meringues are cookies (made of egg whites). Completely delicious. If you can't find them at your local store, you can make them (but they take several hours, as they cook very slowly and have to set). Google "meringue cookies" and you'll see some images.

    What in the world are "meringues"? Is this some type of cookie, cakes, that you buy at the store? The only meringue I know of is egg whites whipped, put on top of pies and then baked until brown. This recipe looks so nice and cool for summer, I would like to try making it. Thanks for your help.

    You can email it to yourself too, then you don't have to mess with the annoying IE version.

    If you go to the page on IE instead of Firefox, there is no ad problem. Like most of you, I prefer firefox, but it is a way to avoid the ad!

    When I clicked on "see all comments" at the bottom of this list, the ad disappeared. It's worth a try.

    This is a pain not to be able to see recipe for ad. I can't close or move.
