Eton Mess

This dessert couldn’t be easier to make (or more delicious). If you need to made this for 5 or 6, no need to double the recipe. Just divide the berries and whipped cream evenly between glasses, and make sure you have a meringue cookie for each glass.

  • 2 pints raspberries
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 cup Prosecco
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 meringue cookies


  • Toss the berries with sugar and Prosecco in a medium bowl. Let the berries macerate until they are soft and juices have accumulated in the bowl, 25–30 minutes. Stir occasionally and mash slightly with a fork to release the juices.
  • In a medium bowl, whip the heavy cream and vanilla until soft peaks form.
  • Layer a crushed meringue cookie in the bottom of each glass, then layer 2 heaping tablespoons berries and whipped cream on top. Can be made 20-30 minutes ahead and chilled in the glasses. Or each component can be made up to a day ahead, with the berries and whipped cream refrigerated and the meringues stored at room temperature.
