Cranberry and Orange Pavlovas
This Pavlova has a secret: The whipped cream on top of the crisp meringue shell tastes a lot like a Creamsicle. Pastry chef Wendy Boys flavors the Australian dessert with vanilla and fresh oranges, and then—in another break from tradition—tops it with cranberries and mint.
These soft cookies are based on hermits, a traditional American cookie made with molasses and spices. Baker Mani Niall uses buckwheat flour to add an earthy flavor and hearty texture—and to make them gluten-free.
