August G…uest #1: Whipped Cream and Chocolate! Oh my!

Lisa.jpgHello everyone. I hope all is well with you. I’m Lisa Orchard the author of “The Super Spies series” and “The Starlight Chronicles Series.” I’m a guest today and I’d like to share my favorite dessert with you. If you’re a chocoholic like me, you’ll absolutely love this dessert, and your family and friends will too. So, without further ado, here’s my dessert.
Lorna Doone Dessert
1 package Lorna Doone cookies crushed (Lorna Doone is a golden, square-shaped shortbread cookie produced by Nabisco)
Add melted butter to cookies (this is the crust so add as much butter as you prefer; about ¼ to ½ of a stick)
1 7 oz Chocolate chips (I use semi-sweet chips. They seem to work better)
2T Sugar
2½ T water
4 egg yolks
1 teas. Vanilla
4 egg whites
Crush Lorna Doone cookies and add melted butter for the crust.
Put crust in 10” baking dish and bake at 350C until crust starts to brown.
Combine chocolate chips, sugar, and water in double boiler until blended.
Remove from fire and add egg yolks, beat after each one. Add vanilla.
Chill for a short time maybe 10 to 15 minutes or until the pan is cool to the touch on the bottom.
Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into chocolate mixture.
Spread over cooled cookie crust and top with whipped cream.
Chill until you’re ready to serve.
**I usually double this and put it in a 9×13″ dish.
Thank you for taking the time to check out my dessert.
I hope you love it as much as I do.
