Meringue Snowballs In Custard
Total TimePrep: 5 min. Cook: 20 min. + chilling
This is also a traditional New Mexican dessert called Natillas. I make it almost exactly like this except that the egg whites are folded into the hot custard and not removed. Cinnamon is sprinkled over the top. Natillas is one of the most popular dishes in New Mexican homes.
In reality, is a French dessert, it's called ILES FLOTTANTE.
How far ahead can you make the meringue's? This looks and sounds like such an elegant dessert to serve to guests, but prefer something that can be made ahead. I would love to try this sometime if anyone can advise me.
For those of you thinking of trying this, this was Julia Child's favorite dessert!
