Spiced Apple Eton Mess

Spiced Apple Eton Mess

this is a very easy dessert, a summer classic... traditional eton mess calls for summer berries like strawberries or blueberries... i've made a variant of that, using delicately spiced apples with some pecans thrown in for a bit of crunch. store bought meringue biscuits make it a lot easier, but if u want to make ur own meringues its even better!you could easily do most of the prep work ahead (like cooking the apples, whipping the cream, etc.) and just assemble it in serving glasses after dinner.
