Dessert

Pavlova

by Aida Azizuddin on Thu, January 23, 2014

Named after gifted ballerina Anna Pavlova, this light and airy dessert is made from egg whites and sugar. The best kinds have a subtly crunchy exterior and a soft, pliable interior.

Crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside. MMm-mmmm!

Don't waste the yolks from this recipe!
