Krity's Wine & Dine
- 3 Egg Whites
- 1 Pinch of Cream of Tarter
- 3/4 C. Granulated Sugar
- 1 t. Vanilla
- 2 C. Whipping Cream
- 4 C. Strawberries, sliced (can substitute Raspberries, Peaches or Blueberries)
In a large bowl, beat egg whites with cream of tarter, until soft peaks form. Beat in sugar, 1 T. at a time, until glossy peaks form. Beat in vanilla.
On a foil-lined baking sheet, spread meringue into a 10-inch circle, pushing up edges to form a slight ridge.
Bake in a 275 oven for 1 1/2 hours (too much in my oven) or until firm to the touch. Turn off oven and leave meringue in oven to dry. Remove foil, and let cool. Place on a serving platter.
Just before serving, spread whipped cream over meringue, and cover with fruit. Cut into wedges.
