Named after a prestigious English boarding school, this mash-up of strawberries, whipped cream, and meringue crumbles is served at an annual cricket match there. A splash of liqueur is a grown-up touch that cuts the sweetness.


  • 2 cups chilled heavy cream
  • 2 Tbs. granulated sugar
  • 1 lb. strawberries, hulled (about 4 cups)
  • 2 Tbs. plus 1 tsp. strawberry eau de vie or kirsch
  • 2 oz. meringue cookies, crumbled into 1/2- to 3/4-inch pieces

  • Place the cream and sugar in a blender and blend until the cream just forms stiff peaks, about 10 seconds.
  • Add 3 cups of the strawberries to the blender along with 2 Tbs. of the eau de vie and blend briefly until the strawberries are incorporated but still chunky, about 5 seconds.
  • Divide three-quarters of the meringue crumbles among 6 to 8 glass dessert dishes. Top evenly with the strawberry cream. Slice the remaining 1 cup strawberries and toss with the remaining 1 tsp. eau de vie. Spoon the sliced berries on top of the strawberry cream and sprinkle with the remaining meringue cookies.

    This is the easiest thing in the world to make and it gets rave reviews. It's a fine combination of ingredients and it's pretty too. Win-win.

    This is a great quick version of Pavlova. You can spin it any one of many ways. I made it for a luncheon recently, using fresh raspberries, some pink meringues I'd baked a couple of days before, raspberry coulis (made with berry liqueur also the day before), and of course whipped cream. The meringue cookies give it a little more crunch than a Pavolva meringue, though the latter remains my favorite dessert.

    Strawberries, cream, meringues-- really, how could this be bad? And it was great-- lovely contrasts of texture with soft cream and chewy/crunchy meringues, but all light and fluffy with juicy berries. I omitted the liqueur as I was sharing with my daughter. Yum-- and comes together lightning-fast!
