Western.Chefs's picture
Ingredients
  Unflavored gelatin 1
  Sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Milk 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Eggs 2 , separated
  Vanilla 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Heavy cream 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
Directions

Mix gelatin and sugar in the top of a double boiler, gradually stir in milk, set over simmering water, and heat and stir until sugar dissolves; mix a little hot mixture into lightly beaten egg yolks, return to pan, and cook and stir 2-3 minutes until slightly thickened.
Pour into a large bowl and mix in vanilla; cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally, then chill until mixture mounds when dropped from a spoon.
Whip cream to soft peaks and fold in.
With a separate beater (or the same one well washed), beat egg whites to stiff peaks and fold in.
Spoon into a 1-quart souffle dish and chill until firm.
Top, if you like, with whipped cream fluffs, toasted slivered almonds, and/or fresh berries before serving.
