Ingredients

Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 300° F.

Step 2

Beat egg whites in large mixer bowl with electric mixer on medium speed for about 10 minutes or until soft peaks form. Turn mixer to high and gradually beat in sugar until stiff and glossy. Turn mixer to low and beat in cornstarch, vinegar and vanilla extract for about 3 minutes.

Step 3

Spoon about 3 tablespoons meringue for each pavlova onto parchment paper-lined baking sheet, spacing about 1 to 2 inches apart. Spread to about 2 inch circle. Make a small indent in middle for filling.

Step 4

Place in oven and immediately reduce temperature to 200° F. Bake for 1 hour, 30 minutes. Turn oven off and keep pavlovas in oven for another hour.

Step 5

Before serving, whip cream until stiff. Gently fold in sweetened condensed milk. Spoon into centers of pavlovas. Top each with about 1 tablespoon berries.

Recipe Notes

Cook's Tip

Make these on a dry day. Meringues don’t do well in humidity.
