Here is another recipe from my GrandMother’s cookbook. As I went along I was tasting so to rectify the amounts of sugar as I have noticed the palette from years ago.

INGREDIENTS

8oz of unsweetened chocolate
8 tbsp unsalted butter
2 tbsp of milk
7 fresh organic eggs
3.25 cups heavy cream
1.25 cups granulated sugar (divided in half)
2 envelopes of unflavored gelatine dissolved in 2 tbsp of hot water
1.5 packages of Maria cookies

DIRECTIONS

  1. Melt the chocolate with the butter and milk in a double boiler
  2. Beat the egg whites to peak
  3. In a large bowl beat the egg yolks with the remainder sugar
  4. Once the chocolate is melted add the melted gelatine then it slowly the the egg yolks and keep on mixing
  5. Add the egg whites to the chocolate and  fold continuously
  6. Beat the heavy cream with the rest of the sugar so to create whipped cream
  7. In a round baking form add the crumbled cookies then the whipped cream then the chocolate and so on until no more
  8. Place it in the freezer for at least 3 hours prior to serving
