Ingredients

2 each  egg whites
0 1/2 tsp  ground cinnamon
0 1/2 tsp  vanilla extract
0 1/4 tsp  cream of tartar
0 1/2 cup  sugar
2 cup  peeled and sliced peaches
2 tbsp  sugar
1 tbsp  cornstarch
2 cup  fresh strawberries
Directions
  1. To make the meringue shells take plain brown paper (specially made for baking) and cover a baking sheer, then draw six 3-inch squares or six 3 1/2-inch circles on the brown paper.
  2. Beat the egg whites, cinnamon, vanilla, and cream of tartar in a small mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form, gradually adding the 1/2 cup sugar, then beating the mixture on high speed until stiff peaks form and the sugar is almost dissolved.
  3. Take the meringue mixture and spoon it into a decorating bag fitted with a medium plain-round or star tip (about 1/4-inch opening) and pipe shells onto the prepared baking sheet. (A spoon or spatula can be used to spread the meringue mixture over the squares or circles on the prepared baking sheets and building up the sides to form shells.)
  4. Bake the meringue for 30 minutes in a 300ยบ oven, and once the meringue is done baking turn off the heat and let the meringue shells dry for at least an hour in the oven with the door closed, making sure not to open the door until meringues are done baking, then peel off the paper.
  5. To make the sauce, take 2 cups of peaches or nectarines and place in a blender container or food processor bowl, cover and blend or process until the peaches or nectarines are nearly smooth, then pour into a saucepan. Take 2 tablespoons of sugar and mix it with cornstarch and stir into the peach mixture, then cook and stir until the mixture becomes thickened and bubbly, and then cook and stir for an additional 2 minutes.
  6. Take meringue shells and place on dessert plates, spoon the sauce into meringue shells, and top with fresh fruit to serve, serving the meringue and fruit immediately or cover and chill up to 2 hours before serving.
