American Eton Mess Recipe

I have been wanting to try Eton Mess for a long time. This classic British dessert has plagued me and I finally decided, why the hell not? I don't even like meringue but let's do this because it screams summer to me. I've adapted the BBC Good Food version below, since their's is in metrics. 
Eton Mess Recipe
You'll Need:
-2 eggs (you'll need the whites)
-1 cup sugar (put it in the blender for 30 seconds to make it finer)
-1 pound box strawberries
-heavy whipping cream
-powdered sugar
-hand mixer
-two mixing bowls
-baking sheet
-spatula
-glasses/bowls
Instructions:
1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees farenheit.
2. In a bowl whisk egg whites until they reach stiff peaks. 
3. Add sugar in three groups, re-whisking to stiff peaks each time.
4. Spoon onto parchment paper lined baking sheet.
5. Cook for 1 hour & 15 minutes. 
6. Let them cool completely.
7. Cut up the strawberries, put them in a bowl and add some granulated sugar. Mix it so the juices come out.
8. Whisk whipping cream and powdered sugar (however much you want) in a bowl until it's stiff. 
9. Crush up 2/3 of the meringues, add them to the whipped cream and add 2/3 of the strawberries.
10. Spoon the mixture into bowls. Add strawberries and meringues for garnish. 
11. Eat immediately!
