Deliciously Delightful Mini Lemon Pavlovas: A Zesty Dessert Delight

How about we cook up a storm with this fun and fanciful Lemon Dream Dessert? Here’s what you’ll need to whip up these Mini Pavlovas with a Lemon Twist that’ll have your taste buds doing the tango:



For the Lemon Curd:

  • 4 Egg Whites
  • 8 Egg Yolks
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon Zest
  • 33 teaspoons Fresh Lemon Juice (That’s a whole lotta zing!)
  • 1 tablespoon Cornstarch (For that perfect texture)
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 2⅛ cups Sugar (Sweetness overload!)
  • 3½ teaspoons Vanilla



For the Topping:

  • 10 tablespoons Unsalted Butter, cut into 2-inch pieces (For that rich creaminess)
  • 1 cup Heavy Cream (Because, who doesn’t love cream?)
  • 1 tablespoon Raw Shelled Pistachios (Gotta have that crunch!)



Step 1: Lemon Curd Magic

  1. Preheat your oven to 107°C (That’s like a warm hug for your pavlovas!).
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together those egg whites until they’re nice and frothy. Keep those yolks aside for the grand finale.
  3. Add in the lemon zest, lemon juice, cornstarch, salt, sugar, and vanilla. Mix it all up until it’s as smooth as a jazz melody.
  4. Get a saucepan on medium heat and pour in this lemony concoction. Stir it gently until it thickens up like a good plot twist. Then, set it aside to cool.


Step 2: Pavlova Party

  1. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper. You don’t want those pavlovas to stick!
  2. Now, draw some circles about 4 inches wide on the parchment paper. These will be your pavlova guides. Think of it as a little art project before dessert.
  3. Whisk up the meringue till stiff peaks (imagine your skiing down a sweet sticky slope) adding some sugar in and then place onto those 4 inch circles on your parchment paper.
  4. Pop these beauties into the oven for about an hour and a half. They’re done when they’re crisp on the outside but soft and marshmallow-y inside. Yum!



Step 3: Top it Off!

  1. Let those pavlovas cool down before the final touch. You wouldn’t want a melted mess!
  2. While they’re chilling, let’s make some magic with the topping. Melt the butter in a saucepan and add in your lemon curd. Stir until it’s as smooth as a slick dance move.
  3. In another bowl, whip up that heavy cream until it’s fluffy and cloud-like.
  4. Time to assemble! Plop a generous dollop of lemony curd on each pavlova, then top it with a cloud of whipped cream. Sprinkle those pistachios like fairy dust for that extra sparkle!


Step 4: Enjoy the Show! Serve these mini lemon dreams to your delighted guests and watch their faces light up with joy! It’s a flavor party in your mouth that you won’t forget.

So, get ready to dazzle with these Mini Lemon Pavlovas that are as delightful to eat as they are to make!
