I also like to drizzle a small amount of strawberry glaze over the strawberries --- you may make this using blueberries or raspberries also --- servings is only estimated :)

Directions

  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a copper or stainless steel mixing bowl whip the egg whites with cream of tartar until foamy.
  3. Gradually add in the 1 cup sugar and continue to whip until stiff peaks form (about 8 minutes).
  4. After the whites have been whipped fold in cornstarch and white vinegar.
  5. Spread the meringue out to a 10-inch circle on the parchment paper leaving a shallow indentation in the middle (to allow the whipped cream to sit on).
  6. Bake at 300 degrees F for 30-40 minutes.
  7. Allow to cool.
  8. In a chilled mixing bowl beat the whipping cream until just soft peaks form.
  9. Add in 3-4 tablespoons confectioners sugar and continue beating until thickened.
  10. TO ASSEMBLE; top the baked meringue (pavlova) with the whipped cream then top with chopped berries.

This was my first pavlova, and I thought it was very good. The directions were right on and I was surprised that when serving it actually came off the wax paper nicely (unlike everything else I make on wax paper). The only thing I would do differently next time is spread the mixture in a smaller circle to get more of a soft center. Thanks for posting!
