CHOCOLATE PISTACHIO BAKED ALASKA
One recipe brownies (CLICK HERE).
Pistachio Ice-cream (We used Ben and Jerry’s)
4 large egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sugar
Beat the egg whites, cream of tartar, and salt on high speed in an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Beat in the sugar gradually in a slow stream until stiff peaks form.
Use a round cookie cutter and cut brownies into individual servings.
Place on wax paper and freeze for at least 30 minutes.
Scoop pistachio ice-cream onto brownie and freeze for another hour.
Make meringue and cover brownie and ice-cream completely. (You can spoon it on or pipe it using a pastry bag). Freeze for at least 2 more hours.
Place in a 500F oven until golden brown or you can do it like the pros and torch it!
Baked Alaska has always been pretty intimidating to me, especially because this was my first time making meringue. It isn’t particularly hard, but it DOES take a long time. I think this would be a good dessert for company though because everything is prepped and ready hours before. I did a second baked Alaska with mint chocolate chip and I’m not sure which we liked better, they were both excellent!
