Total Time1 hr 25 mins
Servings: 8


  • 7 egg whites
  • 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 8 oz whipped topping (or homemade if desired)
  • 3 1/2 cups fresh berries


Make the Meringue Clouds

  • Preheat oven to 275 degrees. 
  • Line two baking sheets with parchment.
  • Use an electric mixer to whip egg whites and cream of tartar on low speed until foamy. This should take about 2 minutes. 
  • Increase speed to medium and gradually add in sugar. Whip mixture to stiff peaks. This should take about 7-8 minutes. The egg whites should look soft and smooth.
  • Add vanilla and mix to combine. 
  • Use a tablespoon to drop heaping 1/4 cup sized mounds of meringue onto the parchment paper on the baking sheets. Leave about 1 1/2 inches between each mound. 
  • Place baking sheets in the oven and reduce the temperature to 225 degrees. 
  • Bake until the meringues are firm and set for 1 hour and 15 minutes. 
  • VERY IMPORTANT: Turn the oven off and leave the meringues to cool completely and continue drying. Do not open the oven. Leave them in the oven for 2 hours. 
  • Remove the meringues from the parchment and place them on a baking sheet, serving tray or serving bowls. 

To Serve

  • Top each meringue with whipped topping and fresh berries. 
  • Store leftover meringues in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a few days.
