Berries on a Cloud....Ohhh Baby.

I love meringue!! I love how it it puffs up and cracks and looks beautifully homemade! I love the soft marshmallowy center. This recipe adds even more by topping the meringue with a fluffy cream cheesey whip cream layer and then smothered with cherries and strawberries oh my!!!

Recipe adapted from The Recipe Club
6 egg whites
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 (3 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped
1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling
2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
1 teaspoon lemon juice
In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites, cream of tartar and salt until foamy. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high until stiff peaks form (do not underbeat). Spread evenly in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Bake at 275 degrees F for 1 hour; turn off oven (do not open door). Let cool in oven overnight or at least 12 hours.
Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth; gently fold in whipped cream. Spread over meringue. Chill for 4 hours. Cut into 16 pieces. Combine topping ingredients; spoon 1/4 cup over each serving.
