Pavlova!

One of the cool things of having a semi-professional mixer, is that beating egg whites into a stiff mass is not really a problem: just pop 'em in the bowl, set the Kitchenaid on maximum, and within two minutes it's done.
Which means that all sorts of recipes that rely on egg whites are suddenly within grasp. And knowing us, that means 'sweets recipes'. The macaron shells are one example, but there's so much more to try...

Today, we tried out a recipe that we want to do for dessert at klik mother's Christmas dinner: pavlova! But instead of whipped cream, we used pattisier cream (using egg yolks and vanilla). The fruit filling was cooked up with a bit of agar and lemon juice.

It was so deliciously soft on the inside, with a lovely 'crunch' on the outside. The rich cream and the sweetness of the fruit really complemented it. I think this is a dessert we can serve with pride!
