Rose-Scented Meringues With Raspberry Compote
Yields: 8 servings

4 egg whites
1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 to 1 1/2 teaspoons rosewater, or to taste

2 3/4 cups fresh raspberries
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar

2 cups unflavored goat-yogurt
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon powdered gelatin
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar

add sugar, and whisk to combine.

In a bowl, with an electric mixer beat the remaining cream until
it holds soft peaks. Whisk the cream mixture into the yogurt mixture.
Whisk in the rosewater. Chill the mousse until set, at least 3

Arrange a meringue in a shallow serving dish, spoon some of the
compote over the meringue, add a dollop of the yogurt mousse, and
top with another meringue. Drizzle some of the berry compote sauce

sorbet. Prepare remaining servings in the same manner.
