Cranberry Peach Pavlova! Crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside meringue. Tart cranberries sweetened with peaches and all brought together in a pillow of fresh whipped cream.
Can Christmas really only be in 3 1/2 weeks? Is everyones shopping done? At least started? I personally have been using Amazon. I have to admit I miss the thrill of the “hunt” but Amazon just makes my life so much easier. I find everything I need, it all ships to me and it took me 30 minutes tops. Now I just need to find a little elf to wrap it all for me, I’m too frugal to pay Amazon to do it for me, lol, I have my limits.
One thing to keep on your list for the Christmas meal is this Cranberry Peach Pavlova. If you want a little bit of a lighter dessert and are obsessed with meringue like I am, this is the dessert for you. It has all the wonderful complementary textures, crunchy, chewy, cool and bursting berries. Followed by the complementary flavors of tart, sweet and creamy.
I wanted to keep the tartness of the cranberry but didn’t want it to taste exactly the same as what is served on Thanksgiving next to the turkey. Instead of using just sugar to sweeten the berries I used a combination of sugar, peaches, peach juice, maraschino cherries and cherry juice. This really added a wonderful fruitiness to the cranberries without over powering the tartness that I love.
In addition to the wonderful taste of this dessert, the presentation is magical. It looks like a mystical dessert cloud. The fruit filling glimmers like rubies and the green in the pistachio garnish plays up the ruby red beautifully making it the perfect addition to your holiday dessert table.
This Cranberry Peach Pavlova will impress the eye and delight the tastebuds!
