  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Add egg whites to the bowl of a stand mixer and begin beating on medium speed until frothy.

  4. While the egg whites are beating, line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and use 1 teaspoon of cornstarch to rub in a 12-inch circle. Set the pan aside.

  5. In a small prep bowl, combine the remaining teaspoon of cornstarch with the lemon juice and vanilla and mix with a fork until liquid.

  6. Once the egg whites are done, fold the lemon juice mixture into the egg whites with a rubber spatula.

  7. Transfer the egg whites to the prepared baking sheet and use the rubber spatula to spread it out in a circle leaving an indentation in the center.

  8. Reduce the oven temperature to 250 degrees F and bake the pavlova for 1 hour, then turn off the oven and leave the pavlova in the oven until completely cool for about 3 hours.

  9. Once cooled, gently remove the pavlova from the pan and place on the serving dish, then top with whipped cream and fruit.
