    2       ea           Egg whites
      2/3   c            Almonds, blanched, ground
      1/2   c            Sugar
    3       c            Raspberries, fresh OR
   30       oz           Raspberries, frozen,
                         -- thawed, and drained
                         -- (liquid reserved)
      1/2   c            Sugar
    3       tb           Water, cold
    1       tb           Syrup, corn, light
    3       ea           Egg whites
      1/2   ea           Lemon, juice of
    2       c            Cream, whipping
   For Almond Meringue Layers:
        Line a baking sheet with parchment paper (or butter and flour
   it).  Using a pencil and 8-inch souffle dish as guide, trace 2 circles
   exactly the diameter of dish onto parchment paper.  Fold sheet of
   parchment or waxed paper in half lengthwise and lightly oil one side
   of paper and wrap it around souffle dish so it extends 3 inches above
   top of dish, taping it securely with masking tape.
        Preheat the oven to 200 F. Beat 2 egg whites until they form
   stiff peaks.  Stir together ground almonds and sugar and gently fold
   into beaten egg whites.  Transfer mixture to pastry bag fitted with
   round 1/2-inch tip.  Starting in the center and spiraling outward,
   form 2 8-inch circles 1/4 inch thick.  Bake until crisp, about 1 1/2
   hours.  Cool on a rack.
   For Mousse:
        Choose a few perfect raspberries for garnish and set aside.
   Puree remaining raspberries in processor or blender until very smooth.
   Transfer 2 tablespoons of puree, with seeds, to measuring cup.  Strain
   remaining puree into mixing bowl, eliminating all seeds.  Add enough
   strained puree to the 2 tablespoons to measure 1/2 cup.  Set aside.
   Chill remaining strained puree, which will be used as sauce.
        In a small heavy saucepan combine sugar, water, and corn syrup.
   Bring slowly to boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally and
   brushing down any sugar crystals from sides of pan with brush dipped
   in cold water.  Raise heat slightly and cook until temperature of
   syrup reaches 240 F (soft ball stage).  While syrup is cooking, beat 3
   egg whites in a mixer until stiff.  As soon as syrup reaches 240 F,
   lower mixer speed to slow and pour hot syrup onto beaten whites, in a
   very thing stream.  When all of the syrup has been incorporated, raise
   a mixer speed and beat meringue until cool.
        Stir together the 1/2 cup reserved raspberry puree and lemon
   juice and fold into the meringue until nearly blended.  Whip cream
   until stiff and fold into the meringue until blended.  DO NOT OVERMIX.
   To Assemble:
        Spread 3/4-inch layer of mousse in prepared souffle dish.
   Carefully peel off the paper from a meringue layer and place the layer
   on top.  Repeat, adding 3/4-inch layer of mousse, then remaining
   meringue layer.  Top with remaining mousse, smoothing it gently with
   spatula.  Freeze at least 3 hours.
        To serve, carefully remove paper collar.  Smooth exposed edge of
   souffle, if necessary, with a metal spatula.  Use a knife blade or
   long metal spatula to score shallow crisscross pattern in top of
   souffle.  Garnish with reserved raspberries.  Serve in wedges,
   spooning a little of the chilled raspberry puree around each portion
   and serving remainder separately.
