I always like to make something green on St Patrick’s Day and this dessert fits the bill!
My friend Jan Oberg shared this recipe with me a few years ago. She said it’s a favorite, one that is requested by her family when they visit. We like it too! I find that if you put the can of evaporated milk in the refrigerator overnight it whips up just like real whipped cream. I also put my bowl and beaters in the refrigerator about an hour before I am going to use them just for good measure!
1 pkg. crushed Oreo cookies mixed with 1/2 cup melted butter. (Set aside a few crushed cookies before you add the butter for decorating the top). Press the cookie/ butter mixture on the bottom of a 9x13 pan.
Filling - Mix together and let almost set:
1 pkg. lime jello ( 3 oz size)
1 cup boiling water
3 (generous) Tbsp lemon juice
1/3 cup sugar
Green food coloring
Beat 1 large can cold evaporated milk ‘til very fluffy; add thickened jello mixture and a little green food coloring: beat a little longer. Pour over crumbs in cake pan; sprinkle remaining crumbs over top. Chill until set.
Is spring here yet????
