Prune Whip

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Stewie

This is from the 1950's. I used to make it with my Grandma! To be politically correct, prunes are now being called dried plums--but they taste just as good!

Flavour and texture are so delightful, and it has no fat! Just as delicious with or without the custard. I had a 4-1/2 ounce jar of prune & pear baby food, so I used 2 egg whites with 3 tbs sugar and 1/3 tbs lemon juice. Spooned into mini-muffin pan and baked as directed . For custard, used amounts for 4 servings (but reduced the sugar slightly). Many thanks for sharing Stewie!!!
