According to Wikipedia, Eton Mess is an old school, 19th-century English dessert that combines whipped cream with luscious berries and meringue cookie crumbles! Drooling yet? I have been whipping up versions of Eton Mess since I was a little girl, although back then I didn’t know it was an actual dish that other people ate and I had no idea what a meringue was. I just crumbled chocolate chip cookies on top of whipped cream and crushed berries because it’s a delicious combo!
