Raspberry-Pistachio Meringue with Spiced Whipped Cream
Traditional eton mess is like a simplified trifle—strawberries, cream and meringue cookies, folded together in a large bowl. For our version, we used raspberries and spiked the whipped cream with sour cream to lend a subtle tang. Store-bought meringue cookies made this recipe a breeze to assemble; Trader Joe’s carries a good version. Layering the berries and cream gave us a more attractive final dish.
6-ounce containers raspberries
tablespoons white sugar, divided
01In a small saucepan over medium-high, mash together half of 1 container of raspberries (about ½ cup), 4 tablespoons of sugar and a pinch of salt. Heat, stirring, just until the berries have broken down and the sugar has dissolved, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a mesh strainer set over a medium bowl. Press on the solids to extract as much liquid as possible; discard the solids. Let cool to room temperature, about 5 minutes, then stir in the lemon zest and juice. Gently stir the remaining berries into the puree.
