  • Coconut Macaroons

    Coconut Macaroons

    In all our years of testing, we've rarely found a cookie recipe as crazy-simple as this reliable crowd-pleaser. These cookies taste great au naturel--but dipping the bottoms in chocolate adds easy decadence (and looks eye-catching on a cookie tray).

  • Schaum Torte

    Schaum Torte

    Our double-decker version of a Wisconsin supper club classic stacks two semisoft meringue "cake" layers, vanilla ice cream, whipped cream and fruit. You can make the whipped cream and meringue layers 24 hours ahead (tightly cover the latter). But wait to assemble the torte until right before serving--and invite plenty of friends. It's a quick-to-melt, eat-it-all-at-once kind of dessert.

  • Almond Meringue Bark

    Almond Meringue Bark

    This beginner-level candy is made by spreading meringue thinly and baking it until shatteringly crisp (so much simpler than piping into kisses). Eat it plain, or sprinkle it on berries and whipped cream or an ice cream sundae, like shards of nutty toasted marshmallow.

  • Hazelnut Macaroons

    Hazelnut Macaroons

    We love these simple, subtle drop cookies plain, but if you want to dress them up, dip the bottoms of the cooled cookies in melted bittersweet chocolate.

  • Meringue-Topped Raspberry Cupcakes

    Meringue-Topped Raspberry Cupcakes

    Raspberry juice or raspberry liqueur flavors these cupcakes, while meringue adds a so-light topping. Press a raspberry into the meringue for a final touch.

  • Vertamae Grosvenor’s Coconut Custard Meringue Pie

    Vertamae Grosvenor’s Coconut Custard Meringue Pie

    A cloud of toasty meringue tops creamy coconut pudding in a recipe from Patty’s friend and fellow soul-food queen. Though not difficult, the filling for this pie does require attentive cooking. This recipe comes from Patty Pinner's cookbook Sweety Pies (tauntonstore.com).
