READY IN: 44mins




  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Beat egg whites in a large bowl with mixer at medium speed until foamy. Add the cream of tartar and beat for 1 minute. Gradually add the sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until well blended (about 8 minutes). Add vanilla extract. Increase mixer speed to high and beat for 5 minutes or until soft peaks form. (Do not underbeat).
  • Coat the inside of a 10-inch springform pan with butter, and add meringue, spreading evenly. Break air pockets by cutting through meringue with a knife.
  • Place pan in 450°F oven. Turn the oven off, and cool in closed oven for at least 24 hours.
  • Drain the raspberries, reserving 1/4 cup liquid. Place raspberries in a food processor, and process until smooth. Press raspberry mixture through a fine sieve into a bowl to measure 1 1/4 cups. Discard solids. Stir in the reserved raspberry liquid.
  • Spoon cooled meringue into bowls. Drizzle with raspberry mixture, and top with whipped topping. (Each serving is about 1 cup meringue, 1 1/2 tablespoons raspberry mixture, and 1 1/2 tablespoons whipped topping).
