  • Meringue

  • Preheat oven to 250°F. Beat egg whites, vanilla, vinegar, water, salt and baking powder in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, beating until stiff peaks form. Draw 2 (9-inch) circles on foil-covered large baking sheet. Spray with cooking spray. Spoon meringue onto circles; spread to edges of circles (they may overlap slightly). Bake 1 hour or until meringues are lightly browned. Cool completely on wire racks.
  • Filling

  • Add milk to dry pudding mix. Beat 2 min. or until well blended. Set aside. Beat whipping cream in another large bowl with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Gently stir in pudding and cherry cocktail.
  • Place 1 of the meringues on large serving plate. Cover with half of the pudding mixture; top with remaining meringue. Frost top and side with remaining pudding mixture. Refrigerate 3 hours. Top with raspberries just before serving.


Prepare as directed, substituting 3 cups thawed Cool Whip Topping for the whipped cream.

Make Ahead

Meringue can be prepared ahead and stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.

    I did find it a tad sweet for my taste. It was very good all around. I would cut the sugar in half for the meringue though.

    I made this for my daughte-in-law's birthday on December 24th. The only difference I made was to use peaches instead of the very cherry cocktail as she doesn't like cherries. It was a huge success. The kids thought it was fantastic. and some of us had seconds. Canadian Quilter
