For those like me at altitude, the word ‘meringue’ strikes fear in the heart of the most skilled baker. Meringues for us are a commitment and endurance test. Hang in and do it; the end result is worth it! If you choose to make this without fresh fruit, the original recipe specified a 1 pound can of pie cherries which is equivalent to 2 cups.
