This is from Better Homes and Gardens Holiday Book, c1959. They have lovely Valentine's Day menus for adult parties. When was the last time you've been invited to one? These look lovely even if there is no party...
Pink Meringue Hearts
Beat 3 egg whites with 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar, and dash salt till frothy. Add 1 cup sugar, a small amount at a time, beating till stiff peaks form and sugar dissolves. Tint delicate pink.
Cut heart patterns from a 4 1/2 inch square of paper. Cover baking sheet with plain paper; draw 6 hearts from pattern. Spread meringue over each heart shape, making 1/4 inch layer. With pastry tube, pipe on rim about 3/4 inch high. Bake at 275F for 1 hour. For crisper meringues, turn off heat; let dry in oven (door close) 1 hour.
To serve: Fill meringues with scoops of vanilla ice cream (takes 1 quart). Top with 1 pint fresh strawberries, sugared and sliced (or use one 10-oz package frozen strawberries, barely thawed).
