Amaretto Floating Island

Serves 8.

6 large egg whites
1 cup granulated sugar, divided
4 cups milk
6 large egg yolks
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons amaretto liqueur
3 tablespoons toasted chopped
almonds for garnish

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add 1/2 cup of the sugar, beating until stiff peaks form.

In a deep skillet or sauté pan, heat the milk until bubbles form around the edge. Using a tablespoon, drop mounds of meringue onto the milk; do not crowd the pan. Poach gently for about 4 minutes, turning once. Adjust the heat to prevent milk from boiling.

Remove the meringues with a slotted spoon or skimmer. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with the remaining meringue.

Strain the milk into a 2-quart saucepan and use for custard sauce.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, the remaining 1/2 cup sugar, and the salt. Slowly whisk in 1 1/2 cups of the warm milk.

Whisk the egg mixture into the saucepan and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture will coat the back of a spoon. Remove from the heat and let cool. Stir in the amaretto.

Pour the cooled custard into a serving dish. Place the poached meringues on top and chill.

To serve, sprinkle the meringues with chopped almonds.
