Meringues Chantilly

4 Jun

Pinterest got me really interested in meringue (hehe).

So I took a stab at it for the first time.  I used this recipe from our good friends at the Food Network with some mom-ifications (in other words, some shortcuts).

I made the meringue cups per the recipe, but I filled mine with some doctored up Cool Whip.  I’m going to call it “Lime Fresh Cool Whip.”  Anyways, all you do is add the zest of one lime to a tub of Cool Whip and stir to incorporate.  Easy Squeezy.  I then used Strawberry pie filling to top each filled cup.

The meringue and the cool whip are pretty sweet together.  The strawberry pie filing surprisingly wasn’t particularly sweet so it was a nice addition to cut into all that sweet.  I imagine thawing out some frozen strawberries would work too.

Note: After sitting out for a bit, the meringue got chewy.  If you aren’t going to serve these right away you may need to dry them out again in the oven.

This dessert feels really fancy, but it was surprisingly easy to do.  I just love individual desserts!
