Preparation

For the meringue, place egg whites in a mixing bowl and on high speed whip until the eggs whites are foamy. Add cream of tartar and mix well. Add sugar with the machine running about 1 tablespoon at a time. Once the sugar is incorporated let mix until the egg whites are shinny and hold a stiff peak. Place the meringue in a piping bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe onto a sheet pan with a parchment paper lining. Pipe 8 4 inch circles onto the parchment paper. If you like you can draw the circles on the paper to ensure that you have even circles. Place the meringue in a 250 degree oven and bake about 1 hour or until dry and crisp. Turn the oven off and allow meringue to cool in the oven. Remove from the oven and set a side while you make the blueberry mixture. For the blueberry filling, heat a large saute pan with butter until bubbling add blueberries and saute until the blueberries start to soften about 2 to 3 minutes. Add sugar and brandy and cook until the sugar is dissolved about minutes. Add spices and mix with berries. Remove from the heat and allow to cool just a little bit. To assemble the dish, on each plate place one of the meringue layers. Then top with some of the blueberry mixture about 1/3 cup. Top with a little bit of the whipped cream. Then top with another meringue layer. Finish with more blueberry filling and then top with the last of the whipped cream. Serve immediately.
