This week I let Mike choose what I should make for Mennonite Monday, so it is Oreo Cookie Dessert (pg 103 W). I think this would be a great recipe 4th of July gatherings.
Oreo Cookie Dessert
1 envelope Knox gelatin
1//4 cup cold water
2/3 cup boiling water
1 large pkg Oreo Cookies
6 egg whites
2/3 cup sugar
1 pint cream
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 Tbl powdered sugar
Dissolve 1 envelope Knox gelatin in 1/4 cup cold water. Add 2/3 cups boiling water and allow to cool. Crush 1 large package Oreo cookies by breaking up with a rolling pin and putting them in a blender till crumbs are very fine. Beat 6 egg whites for 5 minutes. Add the sugar gradually, add the gelatin mixture. Whip the cream and add vanilla and powdered sugar. Stir together cream and egg whites. Put half of the cookie crumbs in bottom of 9x13" pan. Put filling on top and top with the rest of the cookie crumbs. Refrigerate.
This is what Knox gelatin looks like. It can be found in by the jello. There are 4 envelopes in the box.
It was a little thick when you mix it in the cold water.
It thins right down when you mix in the boiling water.
I skipped the rolling pin and just put the Oreos in my food processor.
I could pour milk over this and eat it with a spoon.
Mixing the egg whites. They never got stiff, so I don't know if that was a mistake or if that is how it should be.
Mixing in the knox gelatin after to had time to cool.
I mixed the cream until it was pretty thick. Then I mixed in the vanilla and powdered sugar with a spatula.
After you mix in the egg white mixture it is very creamy
