Recipe by laurenpie

Delicious, unusual, old-fashioned and beautiful. Very quick to make, even though it's cooked. If you don't have a double-boiler, use the largest of the Farberware saucepans to boil the water and use a round Pyrex or CorningWare bowl to stir the ingredients on top. Choose a bowl with a wide enough lip that it won't fall into the saucepan. Family Note: This is Mom-Mom's recipe exactly.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil water in bottom of double-boiler pan (or largest saucepan).
  2. Put all ingredients except vanilla into top of double-boiler (or round Pyrex bowl) over bowling water.
  3. Stir with your finger until the heat is too much to take, then pour mixture into mixer bowl, add vanilla and beat smooth. Continue to beat until opaque and peaks form.
  4. Cool before applying to cake.
