red, white, and blueberry pavlova
This classic combo of meringues, whipped cream, and berries can be made in less than 10 minutes.
Ingredients (serves 10)
1 pint (1⁄2 lb.) strawberries, stemmed
1⁄4 cup sugar
2 tsp. lemon juice
1 pint heavy cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tbsp. confectioners’ sugar
30 small meringue cookies (two 5-oz. packages)
3 pints (1 1⁄2 lbs.) blueberries
1. Place strawberries, sugar, and lemon juice in a blender, and blend on high until the mixture becomes liquid and uniform, about 10 seconds.
2. Place heavy cream, vanilla, and confectioners’ sugar in a
bowl, and beat with an electric mixer on high until stiff peaks form, 4 to 5 minutes.
3. To assemble,
evenly divide the strawberry mixture among 10 plates.
4. Place three meringues in a triangle on each plate, followed by a generous dollop of whipped cream (about
1⁄3 cup). Top with blueberries and serve with a spoon and knife.
