Note from Ricardo

Enjoy these meringues plain or as part of a fruit fool, a dessert traditionally made with fresh fruit and whipped cream. For an Orange Fool, our riff on the classic old boy British dessert—Eton Mess—layer orange supremes with sweetened whipped cream and meringues in decorative glasses.
