Tiny Green Mom’s Berry Pavlova
6 organic egg whites
1 /4 cup organic sugar
2 tsp. cornstarch
1/2 tsp. organic vanilla extract
1 tsp. white vinegar
In large bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form.
Beat in 1 cup organic sugar and beat until glossy. Fold in the rest of the ingredients. Set mixture aside.
Place tin foil over a baking sheet, and place parchment paper over the top of the tin foil. Shape mixture on parchment paper into a nine-inch circle.
Bake in a 200 degree oven overnight. (8 hours)
Before serving, fill the Pavlova shell with homemade whipped cream or store bought, organic whipped cream. Cover with fresh berries of your choice, such as strawberries, blueberries and blackberries. Other fruits go well on this dish, such as kiwis or mango slices. Enjoy!
