HELP - meringue disaster
THis was the dessert that was never meant to be. The final blow is that I left the meringues in the oven to dry, then turned on the oven and burned the bottoms. The original concept was hazelnut meringue torte with blood orange curd. The curd it too sweet and now the meringue is in pieces. Any suggestions on how to salvage this dessert - quickly?
I like HaagenDazs solution, and re the curd that you feel is too sweet, is it possible to whisk either some sort of liqueur or more orange juice or a little lemon juice into it? I think that's what I would try.
The rehab sounds likes a pretty, festive dessert...so don't sweat it; it will looked planned...and Merry Christmas.
