Mixed Berry Pavlova

When I think of a Pavlova dessert, I imagine a very delicate dessert that will be a ladies delight. I have made this dessert for many of my lady friends but my guys love it every bit as much as they do. The Pavlova is such a wonderful dessert cup for any number of fillings, but the one we like the best is just a simple mix of berries in a nice sugar glaze. When my husband found out I was making this dessert, the last thing he said before going to work was be sure and save me a couple of those little desserts, well of course I did.

Ingredients
Pavlova
6 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
pinch salt
1-1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2-1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
For The Berries
4 cups mixed berries
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup whipped topping for each Pavlova
Directions
Pavlova
Pour 6 egg whites in an electric mixer bowl.
Let the egg whites sit in the bowl for 45 minutes at room temperature.
Add the cream of tartar and salt to the eggs.
Beat the eggs until soft peaks appear.
Add the sugar to the eggs while  they are beating 1 tablespoon at a time until all the sugar is incorporated.
Beat the egg whites until the peaks are very stiff and the meringue is shinny, this will take about 20 minutes. 
Add the lemon juice and continue to whip the eggs, until the lemon juice is blended.
Very carefully fold in the cornstarch until completely blended.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and heat the oven to 250 degrees.
Make 8 to 9 little mounds on the paper and then place an indentation in the center to form a cup. This can be done with a spoon.
Bake at 250 degrees for 1-1/2 hours then turn the heat off. DO NOT open the oven door. Leave the oven door closed for 1 hour.
Remove the Pavlova and cool for 2 hours.
The Berries
Mix the berries with the sugar and the vanilla. Cover and set aside at room temperature for at least 2 hours.
To Serve
Place the Pavlova on the serving dish, fill the cup with the whipped topping, place some berries on top of the topping. Serve immediately.
Recipe Tip
If you can make your Pavlova on a very dry day, it will be much better, if the humidity is high. If it is sticky, you may have to cook it for 45 minutes more, before turning the oven off. 
Enjoy!
