Ritz Cracker-Raspberry Dessert
My mother was the best cook I've ever known, and she began teaching me how to cook when I was very young. This dessert was the one that she often made when she was responsible for the dessert for her club meetings. I loved to help her make this, and was fascinated by the meringue-making process. Not only was this raspberry meringue beautiful and delicious, but it always reminds me of seeing my mother dressed up, looking beautiful, and exuding the confidence that comes with knowing that you're going to be pleasing many people with something that you've baked. My mother passed away 23 years ago, but this recipe (as well as many others) makes me feel as if she's still with me.
