Life is uncertain...

I once read on a menu card: 'Life is uncertain, eat dessert first'
Now that is a sentence I clearly understand! :)
We had a street BBQ yesterday and I was on the dessert team. I made a sort of ice cake but since it was difficult to distribute if it was a cake, I put them in little glass cups. I'll share the recipe with you in case you want to try it out.
* two packages of biscuits (ex. Petit Beurre 200g)
* 3 egg yolks
* 200g powdered sugar
* 3 sachets 'Klop-Klop' (this is a kind of whipped cream powder)
* 18 tablespoons of cold milk
The ingredients on this picture is 3 times the above ingredients. It makes for about 45 cups of dessert.

Roll the biscuits all flat so they become little crumbs and fill the cups with a layer of crumbs.
Mix the egg yolks with the powdered sugar.
Mix the Klop-Klop whipped cream powder with the milk until it is all fluffy. When that is done, you mix both together with a wooden spoon until it is one smooth mixture. Then you take a spoon and fill the cups half way.
Add another layer of biscuit crumbs and on top of that you add another spoon of the mixture.
Finish of with some chocolate beans and put in the freezer to set for 12 hours.

Since I had a lot of egg whites left, I decided to make some coconut-cookies too.

* 2 egg whites
* 80g sugar
* 100g minced coconut
* 2 tablespoons of flour

The cookies on this picture is 3 times the above ingredients.

Stir on a low fire the eggwhite with the sugar until it turns white and fluffy. Add the minced coconut and flour. Put little bits of the mixture on a baking sheet and bake 20 √† 30 minutes in a preheated oven at 175°C. Let them cool off and leave them in open air otherwise they will loose their crunch!

Hmmmmmmm, both recipes are heavenly! :) Enjoy!
