Step 6 When spreading the meringue, make sure that the edges are higher than the center, forming a hollow that will receive the filling.

Author's note
By doubling the proportions, you can prepare 2 meringues at a time. They are kept one week in the refrigerator in an airtight container or three months in the freezer (in the case of an unplanned dinner). With brown sugar, the meringue has a slight caramel scent. Perfume the cream with a little coffee extract and sprinkle the grated chocolate cake instead of the fruit. For a lighter recipe, replace the sugar with powdered sweetener in the proportions indicated on the sachets. You can also make individual meringues.

I add my grain of salt
