Schaum Torte



Beat on high 5 or 6 egg whites, 1/2 tsp cream of tartar. While beating, slowly add in 1/3 cup sugar. Beat until stiff white peaks form.

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. On the parchment paper, trace the outline of a round dinner plate and then flip the parchment paper over so the writing is on the back side but can be seen from the front.

With a spatula, carefully spread the stiff egg whites over the circles drawn on the parchment paper. Bake at 200 for 2 hours. Turn off the oven and let them cool inside it.
Top one meringue layer with softened vanilla bean icecream. Breyers is great! Carefully put the other meringue on top of the icecream. If you aren't serving it immediately, carefully wrap it on a plate and place in the freezer.
Now, when you're ready to serve it, whip up some cream and spread it on the top layer, covering that layer with sliced strawberries.
It is wonderfully good.

Hannah, this looks wonderful. And it seems relatively easy -- do-able! ~:-D I have to have things that are easy to do since I work outside of my home (in addition to all else that goes on in a home).

Thanks for sharing it,
Lynn

It is really easy, Lynn - just takes time. Next time I'll make it ahead and freeze it so we're not sitting around waiting for dessert!

So happy to help, Jen Sue! I came across another recipe which called for lemon zest in the meringue and I think that sound delicious too!
