This recipe comes from all_dessert_recipes@egroups.com  which is one of the recipe groups at www.egroups.com. It was submitted by Bella.

Ingredients

Meringue:
3 egg whites
1 1/2 dl (3/4 cup) sugar
1 tsp vanilline sugar
5 drops fresh lemon juice
1 dl (1/2 cup) chopped walnuts

Filling:
100 g (3 1/2 oz) light-colored baker's chocolate (but not white chocolate)
2 tbs water
1 - 2 tbs Amaretto (almond) liqueur or other liqueur
1 tsp vanilline sugar
2 dl (1 cup) whipping cream

Decoration:
dark chocolate

Method

Important tip:
Do not put the chocolate cream on the meringue layer until a short while before serving, or the meringue will turn soggy.

Mix egg whites, sugar, vanilline sugar, and lemon juice in a heat-proof bowl. Put in a simmering waterbath and beat vigorously until the batter is firm, tough, and shiny. Mix in the nuts.

Draw a circle, approx 25 cm / 10" in diameter, on a baking sheet and put it on a baking plate. Spread out the meringue mixture within the circle and make a hollow in the middle.

Bake in the lower part of oven at 100ºC / 212ºF for about 1 hour, then turn off the heat but leave the meringue layer in there for 3 - 4 hours or overnight, until really dry.

Filling: Break the chocolate in pieces and melt over a waterbath. Mix in water, liqueur, and vanilline sugar. Allow to cool. Beat the cream thick and mix it into the chocolate. Pour the chocolate cream in the hollow of the meringue layer and decorate with shredded dark chocolate. Serve and enjoy.
