Directions

  • Spread the almonds on a baking sheet and put in a preheated oven on 200 C˚ until they are golden brown.
  • Leave the almonds to cool down entirely.
  • Turn the oven to 110 C˚.
  • Ground the almonds and icing sugar in a kitchen machine until the almonds are very fine.
  • Whisk the egg whites and baking powder with an electric mixer on low speed until the egg whites are foamy.
  • Add the almond extract and mix on high until stiff.
  • Add the granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the egg whites are shiny and firm. 
  • Fold the almonds gently through the egg whites.
  • Line 2 baking sheets with baking paper and using two spoons, make 8 little heaps of the mixture.
  • Spread each heap with the back of a large spoon so that it's about 3 inches wide.
  • Bake the meringues for 2½ hours. They should be crispy with a pale straw colour and should be lifted easily off the paper. 
  • Leave to cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes, then gently peel them off the paper.
  • Mix the fruit, sugar and the lemon juice in a bowl.
  • Cover and leave to stand in the fridge for at least an hour.
  • Whisk the cream, icing sugar and vanilla in a medium bowl.
  • Place in the fridge.
  • Place a meringue on a plate and fill each with cream and fruit.
  • Garnish with some mint.

Heavenly!
