Method

  1. Preheat oven to 250˚F. Set a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Create a template for your pavlova by drawing a 9" x 7” rectangle on the paper. Invert the paper on the baking sheet; you’ll still be able to see the lines, but they won’t stain the pavlova when it bakes.
  2. Place egg whites and cream of tartar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whipping attachment (see Options). Beat egg whites until very soft peaks form.
  3. Beating constantly, gradually add berry sugar, until incorporated. Keep beating until mixture is thick, glossy and stiff peaks form, then beat in the cornstarch and vanilla.
  4. Spoon large, equal dollops of the meringue mixture inside the borders you've drawn on the paper, creating a rectangle shape about 2 1/2” tall.
  5. Bake 90 minutes. Turn off the heat and leave in the oven to cool and dry, 3 hours. Remove from oven and pavlova is ready to be topped. (The pavlova can be made up to a day in advance. Store in an airtight container until ready to serve.)
  6. Whip the cream until soft peaks form. Add 3 Tbsp. icing sugar and beat until stiff peaks form. Pipe or spread all over the top of the pavlova.
  7. Decorate with berries and dust with icing sugar, if desired. Drizzle with balsamic reduction, garnish with mint springs, and serve.

Note: Berry sugar is very finely granulated sugar that's sold in small bags. It can be found in the aisle where other sugar products are sold.

Options: You could also beat the egg whites with a hand-held electric mixer.

Recipe Options: If desired, replace some of the berries with other types of whole, sliced or cubed fresh fruit, such as kiwi, mango, pomegranate seeds, plums and/or nectarines.
