Dairy Delight for 2018

What better way to end 2017 or begin the  new year  than with an Undeniably Dairy dessert!

Raspberry Delight, also known in our family as Purple Puddin', originated from my mother-in-law Bonnah Lyn's limited  recipe files.  Bonnah Lyn was a wonderful cook and did most of her cooking without any recipes to follow so I  cherish each hand written recipe card that I inherited from her limited collection. Thank goodness she wrote instructions for Raspberry Delight so that we could continue to enjoy a family favorite!

 Raspberry Delight

1 can sweetened condensed milk
Juice of 2 lemons
1/2 pint heavy cream, whipped
4 Tablespoons Seedless Black Raspberry Jam
1 cup of  chopped walnuts (optional)
1 box Vanilla wafer cookies

Mix the sweetened condensed milk with the juice of 2 lemons and set aside.
In a separate bowl, whip the cream; fold in the jam and mix thoroughly. Add this mixture to the sweetened condensed milk mixture.

In an 8 x 8 in. pan, line the bottom with vanilla wafers; add a layer of purple mixture, top with nuts (if desired) and a layer of vanilla wafers; repeat the layers. Chill and serve.

                           From down on the dairy farm, we hope your new year is Dairy Good!

                                                                    Happy 2018!
