This pretty recipe is via my friend Zoe Francois, she of Zoe Bakes and Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes A Day. Not only is Zoe one of the coolest, funniest chicks on the planet, she's a total rock star these days, traveling the country with her co-author Jeff Hertzberg, MD, promoting their latest book, Artisan Pizza in 5 Minutes a Day (see the book's insanely delicious pizza party video, which I was lucky enough to be invited to participate in, below) as well as taping an appearance on The Cooking Channel, probably as I write this sentence.
Zoe posted a pavlova recipe on The Cooking Channel site last week, in fact, and I was so smitten with her beautiful photographs - and the promise of a gluten-free dessert! - that right away I asked if we could do a version for here. Zoe graciously agreed and suggested lime curd with white chocolate and tropical fruit. OK! Oh my goodness, tender meringues the color of the snow we don't have, filled with zingy lime pudding...a perfect mid-February treat in my book.
I made them for a post-Super Bowl treat yesterday and made our guests very happy. You could serve them as a Valentine's Day treat and make your true love very happy. Everyone is happy when Zoe's pastries are in the mix!
