Hello everyone, I hope all is well with you. I’m back today after a busy week of work and dealing with my oldest. He had his wisdom teeth pulled this week and he’s recovering, so not a lot of writing done, but I have the long weekend to indulge in that.
But enough about that, today I’d like to share one of my favorite desserts. My kids love it, too, and it’s a great one for a Labor Day get together. The recipe is below:
Lorna Doone Dessert
1 package Lorna Doone cookies crushed
Add melted butter to cookies (this is the crust so add as much butter as you prefer; about ¼ to ½ of a stick)
1 7 oz Chocolate chips
2-1/2 T water
4 egg yolks
1 teas. Vanilla
4 egg whites
Crush Lorna Doone cookies and add melted butter for the crust. Put crust in 10” baking dish and bake at 350 degrees until crust starts to brown. Combine chocolate chips, sugar, and water in double boiler until blended. Remove from fire and add egg yolks, beat after each one. Add vanilla. Chill for a short time maybe 10 to 15 minutes or until the pan is cool to the touch on the bottom.
Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into chocolate mixture. Spread over cooled cookie crust and top with whipped cream.
**I usually double this and put it in a 9×13 dish.
