This is one, big, beautiful, very delicious mess, an Eton Mess. The British dessert is traditionally made with whipped cream, strawberries and meringue, but I fiddled with it to make it just right for fall and winter and perfect for the holidays. My version has Biscoff/speculoos cookies folded into the meringue, a quickly made cranberry-ginger jam and some lemon curd; raspberries, too. It’s a gorgeous make-ahead for any time, but awfully right after a holiday feast (I’m looking at you Thanksgiving). You can find the story of how I what-iffed this mess in my @nytmag On Dessert column (subscription required). And you can find the recipe at @nytcooking (subscription) or on page 279 of my new book, Everyday Dorie. @nytmag article link in bio or find it in this Sunday’s magazine.
