This Meringue pavlova torte is a delicious and impressive holiday dessert, made with layers of chocolate spiced meringue, whipped cream, and mulled cranberry compote.
Add the baking sheets to your oven preheated to 275 degrees Fahrenheit. If your oven won't accommodate 2 baking sheets on one rack, use 2 oven racks as close to the centre of the oven as possible, making sure that the meringues on the bottom rack have room to rise a little bit.
Bake the meringue layers for 50-55 minutes at 275 degrees Fahrenheit, rotating the baking sheets after 30 minutes if you have the pans on two racks.
Watch the meringues carefully toward the end of the baking time, making sure they don't begin to brown. It's a really good idea to use an oven thermometer when you're baking delicate desserts like this because if your oven temperature is off it can prevent you from achieving the result you're hoping for.
