A show-stopping, elegant dessert made with a light and airy meringue and a mascarpone filling finished with fresh berries.
Preheat oven to 320°F. Line baking tins with parchment paper. Beat egg whites until soft peaks form.
Gradually add sugar and cream of tartar and keep beating. Add cornstarch and vanilla extract. Beat until stiff peaks form.
Pipe the meringue onto the prepared tins. First pipe a small circle and then pipe on top of it, around the edges, in order to form a well.
Put tin in the oven and lower the temperature to 245°F. Bake for 30 minutes, and lower the temperature to 200°F.
Turn off the oven and open the door half way. Leave the meringues inside to cool down.
Beat the mascarpone together with powdered sugar and vanilla. In another bowl, whip the cream. Using a spatula add the whipped cream to the mascarpone.
Pipe the filling into the holes of the mini pavlovas. Top with fresh berries and mint leaves. Serve and enjoy!
