Tricolore Berry Meringue Creams
serves 4

Tricolor Meringue CreamsINGREDIENTS



  • 1 cup heavy cream, very cold

  • The seeds from 1 vanilla bean

  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

  • 4 bought meringue nests, about 3.5 inches in diameter

  • 20 raspberries

  • 25 to 30 blueberries

  • 4 stems red currants


PROCEDURE


In a large bowl, add the cream and the vanilla seeds.  Whisk until stiff.  Stir in the sugar.


Arrange the meringue nests on a platter.  Fill each with a quarter of the vanilla cream.


Arrange the berries on top.  To make them look their best, arrange the raspberries first: a cluster of 3 opposite a cluster of 2.  Fill in the gaps with the blueberries, and top with a strand of red currants.  Serve right away, although these will keep okay covered with plastic wrap in the fridge for about an hour.
