Lady Manager.
Whip one quart of rich cream to a stiff froth and drain well on a
sieve. To one scant pint of milk add eggs beaten very light. Make very
sweet and flavor with vanilla. Cook over hot water till it is a thick
custard. Soak one full ounce of Cox's gelatine in a _little_ cold
water; warm over hot water. When the custard is _very_ cold, beat
in lightly the gelatine and the whipped cream. Line the bottom of your
mould with buttered paper, the sides with sponge cake or lady fingers,
fastened together with the white of an egg. Fill with the cream and
put in a cold place, in the summer on the ice. To turn out, dip the
mold for a moment in _hot_ water.

Charlotte Russe

Line a plain mould at the bottom and sides with sponge finger-biscuits,

fill it with strawberry cream, or cream made as directed in the several

recipes. If the weather is warm it will be necessary to place the

Charlotte on ice for an hour or two, but in the winter it will turn out

without this. The biscuits for a Charlotte Russe should be made quite

straight, and in arranging them in the mould they should lap slightly

one over the other.
