When I was growing up in New York, mom used to take us to Gertz department store in Jamaica, NY. They had a stand which sold delicious frozen parfaits, laced with chocolate or strawberry sauce, and I remember how my sister and I loved it! I've searched the web trying to find the recipe, along with hundreds of others who also remember them, and I found one young lady who had a recipe that is similar. The dessert was unforgettable and I hope you all enjoy this recipe, too.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Soften gelatin in 1/2 c. cold milk. Beat egg yolks and sugar well. Slowly add 1-1/2 cups of milk and cook in a double boiler until mixture coats spoon. (Actually I use a whisk and it also will coat the whisk). Add gelatin mixture and stir together. Chill mixture thoroughly. When totally chilled, beat the mixture until creamy and not lumpy. Fold in stiffly beaten egg whites and whipped cream. Add vanilla and mix well. Pour into parfait dishes and chill. Serve with caramel sauce that follows (I like the caramel sauce warm.)

CARAMEL SAUCE:
Boil mixture while stirring(about 2 minutes) Let cool slightly and serve over custard.
