i was worried that the meringue would be too sweet, so i reduced the sugar to 1 cup and it was still waaaaay too sugary for our tastes. if u would like a subtler flavor, then i recommend u try it out with only 3/4 cup sugar. that way, it shouldn't be so sweet that your teeth hurt... ;) i also learned a tip from a friend and added 3/4 cup yogurt and 4 T superfine sugar to the unsweetened heavy whipping cream (after having whipped it, of course) --- yum, yum! it made for a really nice tangy/sweet taste. i chopped up mandarin oranges and added it in to the whipped cream and garnished it with a mint sprig on top. people flipped out and i've had 3 guests call me to ask for the recipe. i snuck into the kitchen in the middle of the night to polish off the leftovers and they were all gone! now, that's a compliment!
