St. Patrick’s Day Dessert!
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????

I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
