Light Dessert Recipe: Meringue Sorbet Torte

Make It: Meringue Torte

Baking is one of my favorite pasttimes, and I just entered the realm of meringues.

With meringue, you either love it or leave it and my girls love it. I tried this simple dessert recently and was quite pleased with the results. It was interesting to see which dinner guests ate the sorbet and which ate the meringue; my family certainly ate both. After taking a vote, I decided to only cover half the torte with almonds and this decision pleased the five and under set. This is a wonderfully light dessert. You might just want to make it for your mother for her big day.

Meringue Torte

Ingredients

3 large egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 1/2 teaspoons white or cider vinegar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pint sorbet (softened)
toasted sliced almonds, or fresh fruit

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 225 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside. With an electric mixer beat egg whites, cream of tartar, and salt in a large bowl until soft peaks form.
  2. With mixer running, add 3/4 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form.
  3. In a small bowl, stir together remaining 2 tablespoons sugar and the corn starch; beat into egg-white mixture. Beat in vinegar and vanilla.
  4. Drop dollops of mixture ina line down center of prepared baking sheet.

    With a flexible spatula or a wet spoon, spread into a 6 by 14 inch rectangle. Make a 1 inch deep well down the center, leaving a 1 inch thick boarder around edges.
  5. Bake 2 hours; turn off oven, and let stand (in oven) for 2 hours or up to overnight.
  6. Fill with sorbet (I used raspberry); top with peaches or almonds if desired. Cut into pieces with a serrated knife.

Serves 6 to 8.

Without almonds, this dessert has zero grams of fat. Each serving is around 200 calories.

Try it and let me know what you think.

Meringue isn't what I think of as a light dessert, probably because of how sweet it is - but adding some sorbet instead of cream for topping probably helps.
