  • Let cool completely before making a hole with an apple corer in the center to fill them with lotus cream or your favorite cream.
  • For the meringue, mix the egg whites with the sugar in a bowl and place it in a bain-marie until the sugar dissolves. We will know when we touch the mixture and the pimples are not noticed.
