Prep time: 30 Mins
Cooking time: 15 Mins

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 5 large egg whites
  • 1 cup plus 2 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp white wine vinegar
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup store-bought lemon curd

  • Confectioners sugar, for sifting

Special Equipment:

  • 10½ × 15½ in (27 × 39cm) jelly roll pan

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a 10½ × 15½ in (27 × 39cm) pan with wax paper.

2. Dissolve the cornstarch in 2 tbsp water in a small bowl. Cook in microwave oven on High about 20 seconds, until boiling; set aside. Beat the egg whites and vinegar with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in the sugar until the whites are stiff and shiny. Beat in the cornstarch mixture and vanilla.

4. Meanwhile, whip the cream until stiff. Fold in the lemon curd.
