Not only that, it is super easy to create, looks fabulous, and is a great whip it up dessert when you only have a few hours to create something 'special' for unexpected guests, or a pot luck dinner party.
 Prepare your trays. Line two with baking paper and draw a 23cm circle on each.
 Use a plate as a guide....

If you don't like walnuts - use macadamias, pecans, or almonds.
Chop roughly.
 Beat four egg whites until thick. Add 1 cup caster sugar and whip till thick and glossy.
Add the chopped nuts and whip until combined.
 Place evenly between the two trays inside the circles.  Spread out.

100-120 depending on the heat of your oven.
Remove and cool.
 Purée 1 cup of  tinned peaches in a blender.
