Today I thank the good Lord for my sister in law! This recipe is all her's and I am excited to be sharing it with you today! I was feeling super bad for neglecting my blog lately, then my sister in law came to the rescue with a recipe! YAY.
How are you guys doing? It's been awhile since we've caught up!!
This past week a friend and I went strawberry picking! It was perfect weather and a super fun outing! Then the day after, she and I made 30 something jars of strawberry jam! So wonderful! I love making things homemade. It's always better.
Here is the recipe for this delightful dessert!


  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries

  1. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F . Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Draw a 9 inch circle on the parchment. An easy way to do this is to draw around the outside of a 9 inch pan with a pencil.
  2. In a large bowl, beat egg whites on high speed until soft peaks form. Add 3/4 cup of the sugar gradually, while continuing to whip. Make sure sugar is completely dissolved. Mix together the remaining 1/4 cup sugar with the cornstarch; lightly fold into meringue with lemon juice.
  3. Spread a layer of meringue to fit circle on parchment, approximately 1/4 inch thick. With remainder of mixture, pipe or spoon swirls around the edges to form a shallow bowl shape.
  4. Bake at 300 degrees F  for 1 hour. Turn off oven, but leave meringue in oven for an additional 30 minutes. When cool, the meringue should be hard on the outside, and slightly moist on the inside. swoooooon
  5. In a large bowl, combine the cream and half a cup of confectioners sugar, and whip until thickened. Decorate with fruit of your choice; strawberries are excellent.

Have a great rest of your day!
