Strawberry and 
Meringue Slice

Makes 20 pieces

375g strawberries, hulled slices

2 tbsp favourite liqueur (or vodka or grappa)

2 tbsp caster sugar

125g butter, softened

1/3 cup caster sugar (extra, for base)

1 egg

½ tsp vanilla extract

¾ cup plain flour

½ cup self-raising flour

2 egg whites (extra)

½ cup caster sugar (extra, for meringue)

1/3 cup slivered almonds

whipped cream (or crème fraiche), to serve

1 Preheat oven to 180C. Grease and 
line a 28cm x 18cm baking pan with baking paper. Combine strawberries, liqueur and sugar in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate until required.

To make biscuit base, using an electric beater, beat butter and sugar (extra, for base) until light and creamy. Add egg and vanilla and beat until well combined. Sift flours into butter mixture and stir until well combined.

2 Spoon batter into prepared pan and spread evenly with flour-coated fingers. Bake for 20 minutes or until pale golden. Cool for 10 minutes.

Drain strawberries and spread over biscuit base.

3 To make meringue, using an electric beater, beat egg whites (extra) until soft peaks form. Add sugar (extra, for meringue), 1 tbsp at a time, beating well after each addition until a thick, glossy meringue forms. Spread meringue over strawberries and sprinkle with almonds.

4 Bake for 15–20 minutes or until 
light golden and crisp. Cut into pieces and serve warm or cold with softly whipped cream.
