Today I’m sharing a recipe for one of my all time favorite desserts, golden meringues with homemade whipped cream and berries. I’m not much of a baker but this recipe is a lot easier than you think. I ended up sharing this dessert with our neighbors because we had so much left over. Now they’re requesting a dinner party, which I will happily oblige.


3 large eggs

1 cup heavy cream

1 cup powdered sugar

 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/8th teaspoon baking powder


1 tablespoon strawberry jam



Begin by preheating the oven to 225F. Next separate the egg white from the yolks. Using a standing mixer whisk the egg whites. Gradually add in the granulated sugar and baking powder. Whisk until the mixture begins to stiffen and form peaks, about 5 minutes. Gently fold in the jam. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Scoop the meringue mixture onto the baking sheet, swirling it around to create peaks. Bake in the oven for 2 two 3 hours, until the meringues dry out and get crispy. Let them cool in the oven.  Once the meringues are cooling make the homemade whipped cream by whisking the heavy cream and powdered sugar for 2-3 minutes or until you get the desired whipped cream consistency. To assemble break the meringues into bite sized pieces, place into glasses or bowls add the whipped cream and berries. Top with fresh mint and serve.
