Recipe Wednesday

Okay, so it's Saturday. This week has been so messed up with all the pre-op appointments and on Wednesday we took a flying trip to Orlando to visit with my sweet MIL. So here's my recipe for Wednesday...3 days late.

Growing up this was one of my favorite desserts. It's now my children and grandchildren's favorite dessert as well. It's simple, and very light...a great dessert after a heavy or filling meal.


1 sm. lemon Jello
1 c. boiling water mix and cool until just beginning to gel

1 can evaporated milk (whip until stiff like meringue) we always used Milnot. It should be ice cold before you start to whip it. I put mine in the freezer for a half hour prior.
1 c. sugar added slowly after stiff peaks are formed in whipped milk
Slowly add the lightly gelled jello
2 TBL. lemon juice
This should now be a light yellow color and still very stiff peaks. Keep in refrigerator.

Mix together 1 sitck of melted butter and 1 1/2 pkg of crushed graham crackers. Pat the mixture into the bottom of a 9X13 pan, reserving about 1/2 cup of mixture.

Pour the Fluff mixture into the pan and then top with the reserved graham cracker mix. Refrigerate until firm.
