Sweetheart's Dessert

Serves 8

Meringue

Ingredients:

3 egg whites, chilled
½ cup granulated sugar

Directions:

Pre–heat the oven to 275° F., beat chilled egg whites until they form stiff peaks, then slowly add granulated sugar. On parchment paper draw 4 hearts as your outline (3 ½ inches at the widest by 3 ½ inches in length). Place the parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Fill the heart outlines with meringue, causing a dip or bowl like indentation. Bake the meringue for 1 hour, turn off the oven, don't open the door and leave the meringue in the oven over another 2 hours. This will dry out the meringue. After cooled, store the meringue in an air tight contain for up to 3 days.

Filling

Ingredients:

4 cups frozen berries or 2 cups thawed
1 tablespoon of orange liqueur
3 oz. white chocolate

Directions:

Mixed thawed berries, their juice and orange liqueur together and refrigerate several hours. Just before serving, place white chocolate in a plastic sealable bag. Melt chocolate over warm water. When completely melted, spoon filling into meringue shell, cut a very small hole in the corner of the bag, and drizzle white chocolate over the berries and the meringue shell. Serve immediately. Each shell will serve 2 people.
