recipe

Crisp-chewy baked meringues meet cool, creamy coconut sorbet in these blushing beauties. The light-as-air disks, tinted the palest shade of pink, are made by swooping and swirling meringue on to parchment; the top layers are sprinkled with shredded coconut before baking. Freezing the desserts (for up to a day) leaves the cakes soft enough to eat with a fork -- or a spoon, as you like it -- on any day or midsummer's night.

recipe

It’s hard to believe that a dessert this elevated is made from such basic ingredients: sugar, egg whites, and vanilla. It is also a lovely study in contrasts: the delicate, crisp exterior; the ephemeral interior; and here, soft, sweet-tart rhubarb and crunchy pistachios. Happy spring.
