I was very curious to make this, claimed as the national dish of New Zealand. I normally do not eat many desserts and it shows in this review. This requires serving immediately after spreading the whipped cream, so it is best for a company dinner. For just the two of us, it's too much, so we shall pick off the fruit and let the rest go. It has a pleasant, light taste, although the whipped cream would taste better with some superfine sugar mixed in. It was easy, but it required a big time commitment (1 hour in the oven, then to be left in the oven with the heat turned off until it cools completely); hopelessly American, next time I am likely to skip the meringue and use Lite Cool Whip in individual ice cream dishes. Used the inside of a 9-1/2-inch pie plate to mark a circle on the waxed paper. Added ingredients: strawberries and raspberries, kiwifruit, cherries, chopped macadamia nuts and coconut flakes for the fun of it. Made for the Bodacious Brickhouse Babes for ZWT5.
