Apple Float for an Emergency Dessert.
The telephone has rung--you are to have guests for dinner--and your previously planned dessert was just applesauce! It's hardly "dressy" enough for those particular people, and besides, there is barely enough to serve the family without any company. You have but little time. What's to be done? Eggs are generally available. Make an apple float, suggests the bureau of home economics, out of two cups of applesauce and four egg whites. Here's how:
2 cups thick applesauce
2 egg whites
Sweeten the applesauce to taste while hot, add a litle (sic) salt, and set away to cool. Beat the egg whites very stiff, and fold the cold applesauce into them. If desired, add two or three teaspoons of lemon juice, or sprinkle a little nutmeg or cinnamon on top.
