Strawberries and Crunchy Cream
Dress up strawberries with crumbled meringues and freshly whipped cream. Serve with Crispy Oven Fish Fry with Mushy Peas.
- 1 pound strawberries
- 2 tablespoons super fine sugar, divided
- 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
- 8 store-bought meringues, 2-3 inches in diameter
Hull and quarter the berries and add them to a medium size bowl. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar and toss to combine.
Whisk the cream in a medium size bowl until peaks form, about 4-5 minutes. Sprinkle in the remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and the extract and combine.
Crumble the meringues and fold them into the cream with half of the berries. Top bowlfuls of the cream with the remaining berries and serve.
