Ingredients
  Shelled and peeled chestnuts 1 Pound (You Will Need About 1 1/2 Pounds Unshelled Chestnuts)
  Milk 3 Cup (48 tbs)
  Sugar 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
  Vanilla 2 Teaspoon
  Heavy cream 1 Pint
  Sifted confectioners' sugar 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
Directions

Simmer chestnuts, milk, sugar, and 1 teaspoon vanilla in the top of a double boiler over just boiling water 30-40 minutes until very tender.
Drain (save milk for pudding or custard).
Force chestnuts through a potato ricer or coarse sieve, mounding into a high, fluffy pyramid on a large platter.
Chill 2-3 hours.
Whip cream with confectioners' sugar and remaining vanilla until very soft peaks form, and gently frost pyramid, letting a bit of the base show.
