For this first day of Spring, Sunny-Side-Up Meringues. This is a dessert take on “eggs”. The base is a meringue cookie which whipped up pretty easy, most of the work was in the oven. The “yolk” is a mixed citrus curd of lemon, lime and orange. I need to take a master class on curd making. I seem to keep it too loose. I am afraid of over cooking and ruining it but I usually just end up with a loose curd. But lucky for me Dorie’s curds are always delicious so it will not go to waste.
We didn’t know quite what to make of this dessert. The meringues were very crunchy and not able to cut with a knife, it just shattered. And my loose curd did not help the situation. It was sweet and tasty but hard to eat. I don’t think this one will make a repeat in my house.
