Lemon Berries with Lemon Whipped Cream

Lemon Berries with Lemon Whipped Cream

A light, refreshing summer treat in the dead of winter. Sure, why not?

This recipe started as Petite Pavlovas with Lemon Cream and Fresh Fruit. Huh?

I’ve tried making meringues a few times. My oven just doesn’t like them. I can’t keep the heat below 350 so they always brown before they thoroughly cook. I tried them again today with the same result. Ugh…so frustrating.

Anyway, I had this really great fruit (like, better than I can find in the summer) and wanted to use it before I go out of town tomorrow.

Here’s what I came up with and it’s incredibly easy.

Check out what everyone else did this week at Project Pasty Queen.  For the pavlova recipe, visit Emily at A Gilt Nutmeg.

  1. Oh no, so sorry about your oven! I was at a cabin in the woods and I am utterly shocked that these turned out as great as they did for me–especially considering the disaster meringue was for me last time.
