Evening Fairy


  • 3 extra large egg whites
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 can cherry pie filling
  • whipped cream or Cool-Whip


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

Beat egg whites until frothy. Combine salt and sugar and gradually beat in. Beat for several minutes until mixture is very stiff and shiny.


Spoon half the mixture onto the prepared baking sheet in the shape of a circle. Spoon rest of mixture around edge of circle to form a shallow cup(It will look something like a pie crust). Put in oven on middle rack and turn oven off immediately. Leave door closed until morning.

Next Day: Remove from oven. Gently spoon cherry pie filling into the crust. Top with whipped cream.

Yield: 6 servings

Source: Another Hungarian recipe from my grandmother, done the easy way. She made her pie filling from scratch. Grandma said this is called "Evening Fairy" because mothers would tell the children the fairies made it for them for their breakfast. Yes, they ate this for breakfast!
