Ingredients

  • 3 large egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • Assorted fresh fruit

Directions

  1. Place egg whites in a small bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Line a baking sheet with parchment; set aside. Add cream of tartar and salt to egg whites; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff peaks form.
  2. Spread into a 9-in. circle on prepared pan, forming a shallow well in the center. Bake at 225° for 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until set and lightly browned. Turn oven off; leave meringue in oven for 1 to 1-1/2 hours.
  3. Just before serving, beat cream and almond extract in a small bowl until stiff peaks form. Spoon into meringue shell. Top with fruit.
