Lemon Coconut Pavlova with Berries

SERVES 4

This impressive gluten-free dessert is easy to prepare. Adding lemon and coconut makes it dressier for special occasions. Pavlova shells can be made a day ahead and stored in a single layer on parchment paper covered loosely with foil. If the Pavlova loses its crispness and becomes soft, reheat in a 250°F oven for 10 minutes; cool before filling. The eggs cannot be replaced in this recipe.

The Colorado Springs resident had not only become suddenly and inexplicably clumsy, she was also having trouble with her balance.
