Our small group from church met tonight. We always have a potluck. I decided to make a dessert because we all know I love dessert! Wanted to make something new and a little different. Was looking at one of my vintage cookbooks and although I've changed the recipe (as I usually have to), it turned out better than expected. Light, fluffy and oh so delish!!!

You wouldn't believe the feeding frenzy that went on when it came time for dessert. I just sat back and watched those precious women of God practically eating the pudding from the serving bowl. It was so cute and funny! Yes, this pudding is that good!!!

Serves 8

2 envelopes plain gelatin
2 T lemon juice
1 1/3 C orange juice
1 1/3 C boiling water
1 C sugar
4 egg whites

Soak the gelatin for 5 minutes in the fruit juices.
Add the boiling water. Stir. Add sugar. Stir. Chill until beginning to thicken, 30 min to 1 hour.

Beat until frothy. Set aside.

Separate eggs.
TIP: use your hand to separate. It's easy and you only have to wash your hands.
REMEMBER: Inspect the whites to make sure no shell & yolk are in them because they will not form.

Beat the whites for about 2 minutes on high until they are stiff.

Now add it to the orange gelatin frothy mixture and beat until well mixed and frothy.
Transfer to custard dishes/cups that were first dipped or rinsed with cold water.

Chill until firm, about 3 hours.

Leave in custard cups or unmold and serve with or without candied orange slices.

serves 8

3 C water
1 C sugar
2 navel oranges, sliced crosswise 1/4 inch thick OR 4-6 Cuties, peeled and sectioned
(I'm sure you could even use canned mandarin oranges.)

In a skillet, combine water & sugar. Bring to boil. Add orange slices or sections and cook over medium heat, turning occasionally.

Cook until liquid is reduced to a thin syrup and oranges are translucent, about 15-20 minutes. Reduce heat to low and simmer until syrup is thick and oranges are tender but still intact, turn occasionally, about 5-10 minutes. Transfer oranges to rack, wax paper or silicon sheet to cool. Reserve syrup for another use or not.

When cooled, arrange neatly (above) or sprinkle (below) on Orange Snow Pudding.

IN A HURRY? These can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks. So make them ahead and use when needed.
