Ingredients

4 c
cream
6
egg whites
4
egg yolks
6 Tbsp
sugar
3 Tbsp
rose water
6
whole cloves
1
cinnamon stick
1/2
whole nutmeg
1 pinch

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix together the cream, sugar, rose water, salt, and unbeaten egg whites. Beat mixture with an egg beater, and as the foam rises, skim it off with a large spoon and set to drain in a strainer.
2
When as many of these "islands" have been prepared as are desired, place remaining cream in double boiler, together with the spices, and scald.
3
Add egg yolks, slightly beaten, and stir until thick. Strain into a glass dish. When cold, cover with the "snow."
