Place meringues in the oven and bake for 45 minutes or until meringues are crisp.

Place frozen raspberries into a medium saucepan with remaining sugar and heat on level 6 Induction until the sugar dissolves and the raspberries are soft. Puree with a stick blender and then pass through a strainer to remove the seeds. Put into a piping bag and refrigerate until required.

Place the cream and 50 g of caster sugar into a bowl of a mixer and whip until a stiff peak. Put into a piping bag and refrigerate until required.

Preheat oven on Top and Bottom heat to 130⁰C and line the universal tray with baking paper. Place 2 egg whites into a bowl of an electric mixer and beat until a medium peak. Add in the sugar and beat for 1 minutes. With a wire whisk, add the flour, melted butter and spices. Pour the mixture onto a prepared tray and spread thinly. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden in the centre. Let cool and then break into small shards. Store in an airtight container.

In individual glasses or jars, layer the crushed meringues, broken biscuit, cream, raspberry sauce, berries and mint. Finish desserts with a shard of spice biscuit.
