Every baker from New Zealand worth her or his salt can turn out a beautiful pavlova - a baked meringue circle filled with whipped cream and fruit. Named in honor of the famous Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova, the dessert is as light and fluffy as a tutu.

Ingredients

Meringue

4
egg whites
1/4
teaspoon cream of tartar
1
cup sugar
1
teaspoon vanilla

Filling

1
cup whipping cream, whipped*
Sliced fresh fruit (kiwi fruit, peaches, pineapple and/or strawberries)

Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 300°F. Line large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Draw 10-inch circle on paper. In large bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar at medium speed until foamy. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating at high speed until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is almost dissolved, about 6 minutes. Beat in vanilla.
  • 2 Spoon meringue onto circle on paper-lined cookie sheet. Shape to 10-inch round, building up sides with back of spoon.
  • 3 Place in 300°F. oven. Immediately reduce oven temperature to 250°F.; bake 50 to 60 minutes or until firm and dry to the touch. (Inside of meringue will still be soft.) Remove from oven; cool on wire rack for 1 hour or until completely cooled. Carefully remove meringue from paper.
  • 4 To serve, place cooled meringue on serving plate. Fill center with whipped cream; arrange sliced fruit over whipped cream. Store in refrigerator.
