    i had to make a big dessert today..to feed a lot of people..

    i cheated and it was delicious.

    a sort of Eton mess…but with chestnut purée the sweetened one.instead of fruit.

    meringues crumbled…in beaten cream,,,thick…then I added the chestnut purée ..finally topping it off with marron  glace pieces..it was so easy and they loved it!

    its also very Christmassy .

    Can recommend BV !   If you don’t smash them up and stick to Delia’s online recipe for Petits Mon Blancs, they also look (as well as taste) so pretty on the Christmas or New Year table.  The meringues can be frozen in advance so that you only need to assemble them.  Ideal for a festive finish and a change from Xmas pud !  (However, if you are mingling with the local bad  Mums where you are..maybe Jammy Dodgers with a sparkler in the top will work better? :yahoo: )  Whatever you do, have a peaceful and very Happy Christmas, Blue !
