suspiro limeño, Suspiro de limeña, Suspiro a la limeña

(Peruvian)

milk, sugar, eggs

This classic dessert dates back to 18th-century in Peru and translates to "sigh of a woman from Lima."
It's made from a creamy manjar blanco (dulce de leche) caramel base, topped with a huge dollop of Italian meringue (whipped egg whites with sugar), perfumed with port and cinnamon, and served in individually portioned glasses. Sugar atop sugar, it's only for those with an insatiable sweet tooth.
