Hello everyone, I hope all is well with you. It’s Memorial Day weekend. A weekend where we honor those who have passed. Our soldiers who didn’t make it back from war and our relatives who are no longer with us.
I’m thinking of my dad this weekend. I miss him. He passed away before he met my kids and that makes me sad. I think he’d be proud of them.
I hope you enjoy your Memorial Day and take a few minutes to remember those who are no longer with us.
Happy Fourth of July! Here’s a yummy dessert to take to your family gathering where I’m sure you’re practicing social distancing. 🙂
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.
