Meringue with Seared Pineapple

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Separate egg yolks and whites. Set yolks aside for Pineapple-Lime Curd. For meringue, let whites stand at room temperature 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In large mixing bowl beat whites, vanilla, and cream of tartar with electric mixer on medium-high until soft peaks form. Beating on high, add granulated sugar, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until stiff peaks form (about 8 minutes total).
  2. Spread meringue on prepared baking sheet to make large oval, (about 13x9 inches), building up edges slightly to form a "nest." Bake 35 minutes. Turn oven off; let stand 1 hour. Carefully lift meringue off paper and transfer to serving platter.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare Pineapple-Lime Curd.
  4. In 12-inch skillet, cook pineapple slices in the 2 tablespoons hot butter for 8 minutes or until browned, turning once. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Cook, uncovered, for 1 to 2 minutes more or until sugar is dissolved.
  5. To assemble, fill meringue nest with Pineapple-Lime Curd and top with seared pineapple slices. Drizzle with juice from seared pineapple. Serve at once topping with key limes and mint. Makes 10 servings.
