Easy Meringue Fruit Clouds 


3 egg whites 

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 

1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar 

3/4 cup granulated sugar 

fresh fruit of your choice we used strawberries and blueberries but any fruit would work well 


Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. 

Beat the egg whites, vanilla, and cream of tartar on medium speed until soft peaks form.

Gradually beat in sugar 1 tablespoon at a time on high until stiff peaks form. 

Drop meringue into 8 mounds on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. 

Shape into bowls with the back of a spoon. Or place meringue in a pastry bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe meringue onto parchment paper to form 8 - 3" cups. 

Bake at 275degrees for 45-50 minutes or until set and dry. 

Turn off the oven and DO NOT OPEN DOOR; leave in for 1 hour. 

Remove and cool then fill with fruit and top as you like.
