Try This: Nectarine Raspberry Meringues

Guardian UK

Sick of your usual summer desserts? This meringue is light and full of nectarine and raspberry flavor. It comes together very quickly and is perfect for an impromptu dinner party, served warm with ice cream.

Meringues are often a forgotten dessert over here, but in the UK they know a thing or two about whipping them up. And they are the perfect summer dessert -- light and airy and a great use for a variety of ripe fruits.
