Whips are desserts made of sugar and stiffly beaten egg whites or cream and usually flavored with fruit. Prune whip can be viewed as not only a treat to enjoy at the end of a meal, but also a delicious way to add fiber to the daily consumption of food. Top this treat with a little lightly sweetened whipped cream or good vanilla ice cream. From the Western chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947.
