Last week I made meringues.
Today we turned them into the highlight of the tea party — Pavlovas.
First we scooped a spoonful of lemon curd into the center.
To each small plate were added 3 large blackberries.
Strawberry coulis was piped from a paper cone in stripes over the entire plate.
Every last Pavlova was eaten with nary a crumb remaining.
This is an elegant dessert that can be made and plated in advance and served with little fuss. If you were eating at table, whipped cream could be added — gilding the lily.
Do you have a favorite berry?
