Nancy J.'s StoryA few years back, I was mailed a few recipes, from my Aunt's, Penn. DUTCH friend.
Everyone knows ..I collect recipes!
This is one of them.
The hard working Colonial Pennsylvania Dutch, were hard working people. And very frugal!
We can learn a lot from them, from some of there recipes!
I Wonder? Where did they get coconuts, back then?
beaten egg yolks
coarsely crushed saltine crackers
1In a saucepan gradually stir milk into egg yolks.Add 1/4 cup sugar.
Cook and stir over medium heat till thick and bubbly. Remove from heat.
Stir in crackers, coconut and vanilla.
Pour into a 1 quart casserole dish.
Beat egg whites till soft peaks form.
Very gradually add 1/2 cup sugar,
beat till stiff peaks form.
Spread over hot pudding.
Bake at 350 for 12 to 15 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
2* NOTE: Speaking of crackers, I just came across
