The Food52 blog produced a recipe for a meringue dessert that is infused with crunchy homemade almond butter. Although meringues are a popular summer treat, they are extremely sweet in flavor. This recipe tones down the sweetness of a traditional meringue with the nutty flavor of almond butter.

The recipe involves whipping up a batch of homemade almond butter before making the meringue itself. Almond butter is not only easy to make, but it provides a healthy alternative to other store-bought spreads such as peanut butter. Once you have a batch of nut butter, simply fold the spread into the meringue. The rich nutty flavor of the almond butter helps to cut the sweetness of the meringue without compromising the light and puffy texture of the dish.

The recipe offers an unexpected take on a traditional summer dessert.
