I do think there is something heavenly about meringues, and these ones came out particularly well, they just melted in the mouth like little sugary clouds filled with cream.
I’ve been using the same simple recipe for meringues for many years, it comes from Mary Berry’s ‘Fast Cakes’ book first published in 1981 to accompany her appearances on Thames Television’s After Noon Plus programme. I never saw the programme but Mary was featured in many magazines at the time. This is the book I turn to for good basic recipes for scones, traybakes, sponges and biscuits.
Whisk the cream until it is thick and use it to sandwich the meringues together.
