Nesselrode Cream Mold's picture
  Unflavored gelatin 2 Tablespoon (2 Envelopes)
  Sugar 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Eggs 4 , separated
  Milk 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Heavy cream 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Dessert sauce 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Bottled Nesselrode)
  Chopped maraschino cherries 2 Tablespoon (Green Colored)
  Chopped red maraschino cherries 2 Tablespoon
  Vanilla 1 Teaspoon

1. Mix gelatin, 1/3 cup of the sugar and the salt in a cup. (Set remaining 1/3 cup sugar aside for Step 3.) Beat egg yolks with milk until blended in a medium-size, heavy saucepan; sprinkle in the gelatin mixture.
2. Cook slowly, stirring constantly, for 15 minutes, or till gelatin dissolves and mixture coats a metal spoon; strain into a medium-size bowl. Chill, stirring often, 30 minutes, or until as thick as unbeaten egg white.
3. Beat egg whites until foamy-white and double in volume in a large bowl; beat in remaining 1/3 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until meringue forms soft peaks. Beat 1/2 cup of the cream until stiff in a small bowl. (Remaining cream is for topping in Step 7.)
4. Place bowl of meringue in a deep pan partly filled with ice and water to speed setting. Fold in thickened gelatin mixture, then the whipped cream, Nesselrode sauce, cherries and vanilla.
5. Continue folding, keeping bowl over ice, until no streaks of white remain and mixture mounds on a spoon. Spoon into an 8-cup mold. Chill several hours, or until firm. (Overnight is best.)
6. When ready to serve, run a sharp-tip, thin-blade knife around top of mold, then dip mold very quickly in and out of a pan of hot water. Cover mold with a serving plate; turn upside down; carefully liftoff mold.
7. Beat remaining 1/2 cup cream until stiff in a small bowl; spoon in puffs on top. Or spoon cream into a pastry bag, and, using a fancy tip, press out a bow shape.
