TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 55 min. + standing YIELD:10 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • FILLING:
  • 1 package (8 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 cup marshmallow creme
  • 1 cup reduced-fat whipped topping
  • 5 cups fresh strawberries, halved
  • 1/4 cup strawberry glaze

Directions

  • 1. Line a large pizza pan with parchment paper; set aside. In a large bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved.
  • 2. Spread into a 10-in. circle on prepared pan, forming a shallow well in the center. Bake at 225° for 45-55 minutes or until set and lightly browned. Turn oven off; leave meringue in oven for 1 to 1-1/4 hours.
  • 3. For filling, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Beat in marshmallow creme. Fold in whipped topping. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • 4. Just before serving, spread filling into meringue shell. Top with strawberries. Drizzle with glaze. Yield: 8 servings.
