Layered Meringue Dessert

Give your dessert a clever name – and tell us about your recipe.

Blueberry Custard Pavlova – meringue circles with alternating layers of blueberries, whipped cream, and vanilla custard.

What was the biggest surprise during your baking journey? Did you use any unconventional approaches? What did you learn along the way? Tell us about it!

I love making Schaum Torte, so this is just a layered variation. I learned that it helps to wipe down the cookie sheet with a damp towel to make the parchment stick before trying to pipe the meringue. I would also have made twice as much custard!

How did you add a Wisconsin twist to your flavors or decoration?

Wisconsin ingredients included eggs from my friend Jo's chickens and blueberries from our blueberry patch.

How did you do?

Absolutely lovely.
