• 6 eggs (whites only)
• 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
• ¼ tsp of tart cherry juice concentrate
• 1/4 tsp salt
• 1 3/4 cup sugar
• 1 packages cream cheese (8oz)
• 1 cup sugar
• 2 cups heavy whipping cream
• 2 cups mini marshmallows
• 1 can cherry pie filling (21 oz)
• 1 pint fresh strawberries
• dash vanilla (optional)
Whip the eggs, cream of tartar and salt together at high speed. As the eggs become foamy, begin adding 1 tablespoon of sugar at a time until all of the 1 ¾ cups are added. This will form stiff and glossy peaks. Make sure not to underbeat the whites.
Spread the egg whites into a greased 9×13 pan and bake at 275 in a preheated oven for 1 hour. Once the timer goes off leave the pain in the order without opening the door for 12 hours. The best time to do this is at night before you go to bed.
Combine room temperature cream cheese, sugar and vanilla and mix until all ingredients are smooth.
Whip cream until stiff.
Combine the whipped cream, cream cheese mixture and marshmallows by gently folding everything together
Spread mixture from step #5 over the meringue.
Place in refrigerator and let chill for 12 hours.
Make the topping by combining the strawberries with the cherry pie filling. Add a dash of lemon juice for a little more tartness and vanilla if you like. Spoon the topping over the individual portions when served.
Also, feel free to search out other locally grow, fresh fruit like blueberries, blackberries and enjoy as a topping, too.
