  • Heat oven to 250°F.
  • Whisk egg whites, dry jelly powder and 3/4 cup sugar in large bowl with mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Add vinegar; beat on low speed just until blended. Spread half into 10-inch round on each of 2 parchment-covered baking sheets.
  • Bake 1-1/2 hours or until edges of meringues are dry, but centres are still soft.
  • Meanwhile, mix cream cheese, egg yolks, lemon juice and remaining sugar in medium microwaveable bowl until blended. Microwave on HIGH 6 min. or until slightly thickened, stirring after each minute. Cool completely.
  • Add Cool Whip to cream cheese mixture; whisk just until blended. Stack meringues on plate, spreading half the cream cheese mixture between meringues. Top with remaining cream cheese mixture.

How to Get Round Meringue Layers

Place 10-inch round cake pan on sheet of parchment paper; trace around pan. Repeat on second parchment sheet. Spread meringue mixture onto parchment sheets, using the traced lines as the guides for how large to make the meringue rounds.
