You asked for it, so here it is…a chance to share our Thanksgiving recipes. I’ll get the ball rolling by sharing one of mine. This one is a super favorite with my family and I get mega complaints if it isn’t in the dessert spread after dinner. I found it in my husband’s grandmother’s recipe box and she’d clipped it from a magazine at least 20 years ago. It’s just so simple, I love making it!
1.5 cups real egg nog
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tspn sal
1 tspn vanilla
1/4 tspn almond extract
1 cup whipping cream (whipped)
1 – 9 inch crust – baked (shortbread or graham cracker crust can be used too)
Mix gelatin, sugar and salt. Gradually stir in eggnog. Warm over low heat until gelatin is dissolved. Watch carefully, stirring from time to time. Do not let milk get hot (no bubbles). Chill until mixture mounds when dropped from a spoon. Fold in flavorings and whipped cream. Chill about 5 to 10 minutes. Spoon into crust. Chill.
It’s fabulous, it really is.
