John's mom always serves us meringues with whipped cream and berries for dessert in the summer and I have been dying to make them myself! Yesterday I finally bit the bullet and tried making them. The wait time is a little frustrating (bake for 3 hours and cool in the oven overnight) but then end result is worth it. Crispy, crunchy and just a little bit chewy. I must admit - I eat them like cookies!
