Quick Pavlova Raspberry Chambord Recipe

I know it doesn't look like the normal puffy style pavlova but it sure tasted good. It was my first time believe or not making them and they didn't look right from all the  photo's and images I saw. I realized too late, I had it upside down and the crinkled cracked sides were underneath and then I also  put way too much whipped cream on it! I looked at other photo's and thought oh boy better try making another batch but they tasted so good, I decided to post it anyway. Lesson learned, read everything first then make sure you have the indented side up to fill (smile) mine were so puffy on the other side the indent was gone so I couldn't tell the difference.  See the links at the end for other recipes for Pavlova and photo's from some other awesome blogger friends that really aced the look and captured a great photo!

Quick Pavlova

1 1/4 cup sugar
4 egg whites
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons corn starch

Beat egg whites until stiff not dry. Add sugar 1 tablespoon at a time until thick and glossy. Gently fold in the lemon juice, almond and cornstarch. Spread mixture evenly onto the circle, leaving a depression in the middle. Bake on 300 degrees for 1 hour. Cool completely on wire rack.

Filling:
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
2 cups fresh raspberries and more for garnish
1/4 cup Chambord Liqueur or in a pinch use another favorite flavor or you have on hand
1/4 cups water
1/2 cups heavy cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar

In a medium size saucepan add the sugar and cornstarch, stir in the raspberries, Chambord and water. Cook until it boils then for another minutes. Let cool for 15 minutes then add the remaining raspberries. Cool.

Beat heavy cream and powdered sugar with a heavy duty electric wire beater, 1 minute or until soft peaks form.

There is no such thing as a bad Pavlova to me,
 even if you don't make it perfect to look at,  it
will still be delicious! This is no where near what I have seen other's make but oh well!
 Don't miss trying this delicious dessert!
