  • 1 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 2 c. skim lowfat milk
  • 2 T cornstarch
  • 2 large eggs (use 1/2 c. egg substitute for low fat, cholesterol)
  • 1/2 c. sugar

  1. For Meringue: In large mixing bowl, put together egg whites, vanilla and cream of tartar. Let mix stand at room temperature for 30 min. Beat egg white mix with electric mixer on high speed till soft peaks form. Add in sugar, 1 tbsp at a time, beating on high speed till very stiff peaks form.On paper lined cookie sheet (either baking paper or possibly cut to size brown paper bag), spread meringue into a large circle with the sides built up a little. Bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour and don't open the door. Turn off oven and keep door closed for 6 hrs. Carefully lift meringue off paper and wrap in foil to keep dry. Meringue can be frzn if well wrapped.
  2. For Custard: Heat lowfat milk slowly. Mix sugar and cornstarch together in a small bowl. Add in large eggs and stir well. Fold in a little warm lowfat milk and stir. Then add in the egg mix to the pan of remaining warm lowfat milk. Cook, stirring constantly on medium heat till thickened. Add in vanilla. Chill.
  3. To Assemble: Just before serving, place the meringue on a large platter (or possibly cut into serving size pcs and place on individual dessert plates), spoon on 3/4 of the berries, then spoon on the custard, top with remaining berries. Garnish with optional chocolate and pecans. Serves 6 to 8.
