Vacherin

Vacherin is French dessert. It is usually made with meringue that is filled with whipped cream or sometimes ice cream. There are two ways you can make it. You can stack rings of meringue in a way that they make a bowl shape, which can be used for ice cream. Another, more popular way, is to stack layers of meringue like cake with whipped cream, layers of fruit or ice cream in between.
