View the original recipe via:
Wash the strawberries and hull them. Purée just under half to make a smooth sauce. Add a tablespoon of sugar to this (do not make the strawberry sauce too sweet).
Cut the rest of the strawberries into quarters or pieces. Beat the cream together with 2 tablespoons of sugar until stiff, but make sure that it is not too stiff. Stir in half of the strawberry sauce, but make sure that it is not well mixed.
Crumble the meringues, not too finely. Layer fresh strawberries, whipped cream, remaining strawberry sauce and meringue pieces in the dessert glasses.
Repeat the layering until the glasses are full and all ingredients have been used. Enjoy!
