The perfect summer treat and great for Christmas!  Best served with whipped cream or for something a little different, whipped cream infused with berry coulis.

To make you will need:
3 egg whites (size 6)
¾ cup of caster sugar
*whipped cream to serve

1. Pre-heat your oven to 180˚C.
2. Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry, add half the sugar and beat well, add remaining sugar a tablespoon at a time, beating well after each addition.
3. Drop oven temp to 120˚C and pipe or spoon small amounts (slightly smaller than bite size as mixture will expand) of the mixture onto an oven tray lined with baking paper.
4. Bake for 35 minutes or until meringues are dry but not brown.
*Tip – do not open oven door while cooking!

Meringues like Pavlova can be different in texture each time you make them due to things like the weather and the humidity.

Enjoy and Merry Christmas!
