For the Meringue Disks:
3/4 cup almonds
1/2 cup superfine sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
4 egg whites
1/3 cup superfine sugar
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 1/2 cups dried cranberries
1/4 cup of sliced almonds

For the Mousse:
2 1/4 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
1/3 cup of water
3 3/4 cups heavy cream
18 ounces white chocolate chips

Instructions for Meringue Disks

1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
2. Draw 2 7-inch circles on 2 separate sheets of parchment paper with at least 1 inch of space all the way around. Turn over onto a baking sheet so circles show through the back side. Set aside.

3. Grind almonds, 1/2 cup sugar and cornstarch together until you get the consistency of cornmeal. Set aside. Tip: Be careful not to grind the almonds too fine or they will become oily and clump.
4. Whip eggs and cream of tartar on medium speed until you reach the soft-peak stage.
