In this recipe adapted from Australian cookbook author Odette Williams, French meringue is baked until perfectly crisp on the outside and gooey and marshmallow-like on the inside. Served with whipped cream, curd, seasonal fruit, or a combination of all three, the individual meringues make an excellent celebratory (and gluten-free!) dessert.
