  • 2 eggs, separated
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup apple juice
  • 3 cups scalded milk
  • Dash of nutmeg

Beat egg whites with rotary beater until stiff. Whip cream in blender and set aside. Put egg yolks, sugar, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and apple juice in blender; cover and process at STIR until sugar is dissolved. Add scalded milk slowly. When well blended, pour over egg whites and quickly fold together. Serve topped with whipped cream.

To scald your milk, heat it to a temperature just before boiling.
