Minted Meringues with Strawberries

2 large Egg whites
1/4 tsp Cream of Tartar
Dash of Salt
1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
2 tsp Mint, chopped finely
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
1 cup Strawberries, sliced

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Place piece of parchment paper on baking sheet. Beat together the cream of tartar, egg whites, and salt in mixer on high until foamy. Slowly add the powdered sugar to the mixture until stiff peaks form. Fold in mint and vanilla. Pipe the mixture onto the parchment paper into four circles. Using a spoon, indent gently on the circles to form a nest. Bake at 250 degrees for 1 to 1 ½ hours or until dry. Turn off the oven and cool in the closed oven for 3 hours.
