This Pavlova recipe is elegant yet light, made with whipped egg whites and sugar, then topped with cream and fresh fruit. The perfect light dessert!

Ingredients

  • 4 large egg whites (room temperature)
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries (sliced)
  • 3 kiwis (sliced)
  • 1-1/2 cups fat free whipped cream

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Cover a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Draw 6 (4-inch) circles on paper, I used a plastic lid as my guide. Turn paper over; secure with masking tape.
  • Beat egg whites, cornstarch, and salt at high speed of a mixer until foamy.
  • Slowly add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until thick and glossy.
  • Add vanilla, beating well.
  • Divide egg white mixture evenly among the 6 drawn circles. Shape meringues into nests with 1-inch sides using the back of a spoon. Place meringues in oven.
  • Immediately reduce oven temperature to 300°; bake 1 hour.
  • Turn oven off; cool meringues in closed oven at least 4 hours or until completely dry. (Meringues are done when the surface is dry and meringues can be removed from paper without sticking to fingers.) Carefully remove meringue nests from paper.
  • Assemble the pavlovas by topping with 1/4 cup whipped cream in each nest, then arrange fresh fruit on top.
  • The meringue shells can be kept frozen for up to two months. Remove them from freezer before you assemble the pavlovas, no reheating required.
