To 1 quart sweet milk which has been scalded–add 5 egg yolks which have been beaten with 5 tab sugar–stir constantly–turn on low heat (as you must never let milk and eggs boil, it curdles it). Cook till it thickens up only–remove from fire and add 3 envelopes of plain Gelatine which you have softened in cold milk, about 2/3 cup–Let stand till ready and set. Then fold in 1 pint cream beaten stiff and sweeten and flavor to taste–Serve with dab of whipped cream–topped with cherry or nuts.
