Black & White Baked Alaska

This stunning sweet from Spago Beverly Hills can be assembled ahead of time, then baked at the last minute. Note that the dessert needs to be frozen at various points, so plan accordingly. When preparing the meringue disks, use a six-ounce tuna fish can as a template.
Ingredients

Ingredients

 For almond meringue disks
3 large egg whites
1/2 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted, ground
Chocolate Sorbet
For vanilla meringue
6 large egg whites
1/2 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
1 cup sugar

Non-stick vegetable oil spray

Method

Make almond meringue disks

Preheat oven to 250░F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Using 3 1/4-inch-diameter can as template, outline 8 circles on each sheet of parchment. Turn parchment over on baking sheet (circles should show through).
Using electic mixer, beat whites in medium bowl until soft peaks form. Scrape seeds from vanilla bean. Gradually add sugar, beating until meringue is stiff and glossy, about 5 minutes. Fold in ground almonds. Spread 1 rounded tablespoon of meringue in each circle on parchment, forming disks about 1/4 inch thick.

Bake meringue disks 1 hour. Reverse position of sheets and bake until meringues are pale golden and almost firm to touch, about 45 minutes longer. Cool meringues on baking sheets. Carefully peel meringues off parchment.

Arrange 8 meringues on clean baking sheet; top each with second meringue. Top each stack with scoop of sorbet (don't press; disks are fragile). Cover with foil; freeze while making vanilla meringue or up to 2 days.

Preheat oven to 500░F. for 30 minutes. Spray large baking sheet with non-stick spray. Transfer desserts to prepared sheet. Bake until meringue is just tinged with brown, no longer than 2 minutes.
