  • 1
    In large bowl, beat egg whites and salt with electric mixer on high speed until soft peaks form; set aside. In 1-quart saucepan, heat 1/3 cup water and 3/4 cup sugar to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until sugar is dissolved. Cook over medium heat to 245°F on candy thermometer or until small amount of mixture dropped into cup of very cold water forms a firm ball.

    Slowly beat sugar mixture into egg whites on low speed. Beat on medium speed about 8 minutes or until mixture cools to room temperature.
  • 3
    Fold cranberry sauce and whipped topping into egg white mixture. Spoon into 6 individual soufflé dishes, about 1 1/4 cups each; smooth tops. Cover with plastic wrap; freeze at least 8 hours but no longer than 24 hours.
  • 4
    Line cookie sheet with waxed paper. In 1-quart saucepan, heat 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup of the sugar to boiling over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until sugar is dissolved. Cook over medium-high heat to 234°F on candy thermometer or until small amount of mixture dropped into cup of very cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from water. Remove from heat; stir in cranberries. Let stand about 2 minutes or until cranberries are softened. Remove cranberries with slotted spoon to cookie sheet. Place remaining 1/4 cup sugar on plate; roll cranberries in sugar to coat. (Cranberries can be prepared up to 6 hours before using; keep refrigerated.)

Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • Bring on the drumroll when you present this dessert! Place paper doilies on your finest china dessert plates, then place individual soufflé dishes on the doilies. Add a pirouette cookie as the final touch.
  • Don’t worry if you don’t have individual soufflé dishes. Just use a freezerproof 2 1/2-quart glass serving bowl or soufflé dish. Serve a scoop of soufflé on dessert plates dusted with baking cocoa, and offer chocolate syrup on the side.
