  1. Place egg white in a mixing bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Add cream of tartar and salt; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff peaks form and sugar is dissolved.
  2. Drop into four mounds on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Shape into 4-in. cups with the back of a spoon. Bake at 225 degrees F for 1-1/2 hours or until set and dry. Turn oven off; leave meringues in oven for 1-1/2 hours. Store in an airtight container.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add confectioners' sugar; beat until stiff peaks form. Just before serving, spoon into meringue shells. Top with strawberries and garnish with mint if desired.

I have to say that this is a VERY EASY recipe indeed...and it formed EXTREMELY WELL. I used to think that meringues would be daunting, but these are not at all ( and this is my first time makin...

I was going to rate these a 3 but the reason these didn't turn out may be my fault, but I will never know. This is why I decided to rate this a 4. I added some strawberry flavoring to my mixtur...

These were great! I followed the suggestion of others, and made 6 smaller cups, and cut down on the sugar added to the whipped cream. But these were a hit, and easy, and I'll make them again! Th...

I made the meringue cups as directed except, to cut down on the fat, I used a box of white chocolate instant pudding mix and prepared it with skim milk. I substituted this for the whipped cream...
