The June 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Dawn of Doable and Delicious. Dawn challenged the Daring Bakers’ to make Chocolate Pavlovas and Chocolate Mascarpone Mousse. The challenge recipe is based on a recipe from the book Chocolate Epiphany by Francois Payard.
I took some liberties with this recipe because of the group I was cooking for. They are not chocolate fans so I had to adapt and also to fit the them e of a 21st birthday. It turned out pretty well and I’m pretty pleased. 1) I didn’t do the chocolate part of this recipe. Instead I went with vanilla flavoring and colored these pretty in pink. 2) They were filled with a whipped sweetened cream cheese filling. 3) I made them cookie sized – individual sizes pavlovas.
Next time I’ll try the chocolate version. Thanks for a great challenge! I made these ahead of time and only put the filling in at the last minute. Sorry, no pics of the filled version, it was too rushed at serving time to snap any pictures. Enjoy eating Pink Pavlova Cookies.
