Strawberry Meringue Cups

Judy Grimes of Brandon, Mississippi likes to celebrate with something special from her oven that looks as good as it tastes. This pretty dessert- with red strawberries cupped in fluffy white meringue- fills the bill on both counts!

    I have made this dessert several times and it always meets with raves. It's light so after a meal when I serve this dessert, no one turns it down!

    Being from Germany I am used to making Schaum Torte, and this recipe reminds me of my recipe from home, only easier. It is light and very tasty. My family loved it. I will certainly make it again and again.
