This is a very popular German dessert with whipped cream, frozen raspberries, and meringue cookies that is known by many names, like Rote Inge (red Inge) or Schneegestöber (snowstorm). You only need 4 ingredients and it needs to be made in advance, so perfect for parties. Make sure you leave the meringue in small chunks and not crush them too finely. You want to have some bite.

I love this dessert. My British mum called it Eton Mess. You can use any kind of berries you like. It's also great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Read More
