About This Recipe

I’m sure you have all heard of Eton Mess, the classic English boarding school dessert. That name is so unappealing, however, and the dessert is sublime.

It’s very simple, really – just layer whipped cream with crumbled meringues and strawberries. It’s amazing how something so simple can be so incredibly delicious.

If you make this dessert ahead of time, the meringues soften in the cream and meld into a mixture that’s almost like a cooked pudding. If you serve it right away, the meringues stay slightly crunchy in the middle. Either way, it’s fabulous.

Oh, and you could make this dessert with raspberries instead. Yum.

Make this dessert in your prettiest glasses and enjoy.



In a large bowl, beat the cream with the sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks form.


Fold in the crumbled meringue cookies.


Smash 1/2 cup of the strawberries and combine with the remaining 2 cups sliced fruit.


Layer the cream mixture and the strawberry mixture in pretty glasses. Depending on the size of the glasses, you can fill four, five, or six of them. Either serve right away or chill up to 4 hours.
