I absolutely love this dessert. I ate several of them while prepping these for today's Make It Monday.
Homemade Whipped Cream in a piping bag- recipe found here
Meringues- homemade or store bought. Either is fine for this recipe.
1 6 ounce container fresh raspberries
1 12 ounce bag frozen raspberries
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 TBSP fresh lemon juice
Break the meringue cookies into small bits
In a sauce pan, heat frozen raspberries, sugar and lemon juice. Bring to a boil. Mash raspberries with the back of a wooden spoon. Simmer for 10 minutes and then remove from heat. Add fresh raspberries.
Stir and mash. Let cool. Then refrigerate until well chilled.
For these I used a 2.5 ounce mini parfait glass but I have also used 2 ounce shot glass shown here.
Starting with a good squirt of whipped cream in the bottom of the glass. Next a spoon of raspberry sauce and then the meringue pieces.
The red and white colors of this dessert just perfect for so many holidays. Make sure you bookmark this page. (inspired from a recipe by the Barefoot Contessa)
Off to another great week- our last week of school!
