Pavlova Wreath 7 Steps

  • Step 1

    Preheat the oven to 225°F. Place an oven rack in a lower part of the oven.

  • Step 2

    Using a pen, draw a 10-inch circle on parchment paper. Then draw a 6-inch circle in the center of the larger circle. Place the parchment paper on a baking sheet, draw side down.

  • Step 3

    Using an electric stand mixer or hand mixer, whip egg whites in a dry clean bowl for about 3 minutes on medium speed until soft peaks form.

  • Step 4

    Turn the mixer to medium-high speed. Start adding the sugar slowly, 1 tablespoon at a time, until all the sugar is incorporated. The egg whites should be triple in size, in stiff peak form and shiny by now.

  • Step 5

    Mix the cornstarch and white vinegar together. Add the mixture to the egg whites with vanilla extract and keep whipping for another minute.

  • Step 6

    Transfer the mixture to a piping bag with a plain piping tip. Pipe 8-9 even mounds onto parchment paper, using trace ring as a guide. Use back of a spoon to create a hollow in each mound.

  • Step 7

    Bake it in the preheated oven for 1 hour and 20 minutes. After that, turn the oven off and let the pavlova sit for at least 1 hour. Do not open the oven door at all or the pavlova can crack.

Raspberry Mint Coulis 3 Steps

  • Step 1

    While the pavlova is in the oven, in a small saucepan bring raspberries, sugar and mint leaves to a boil over medium heat.

  • Step 2

    Reduce the heat to low and let simmer for about 10 minutes or until sugar is dissolved and raspberries are soft.

  • Step 3

    Turn off the heat and blend the mixture with a hand blender. Pour it into a bowl through a very fine sieve. Add the lemon juice and let it cool down.

To Serve 5 Steps

  • Step 1

    Whip the heavy cream with icing sugar until stiff peaks form.

  • Step 2

    Spread the whipped cream on top of the Pavlova.

  • Step 3

    Spoon the raspberry coulis on top.

  • Step 4

    Top it with fresh berries and slivered pistachio.

  • Step 5

    Note: Pavlova can be made ahead a couple of days, store covered in a cool dry place. But once it's topped with cream and fruits it's best to be serve in the same day.
