Christmas Dessert

I went to a dinner party one time where the hostess served chocolate cake after a fairly heavy dinner. This is a true story...... we all fell asleep in her living room. For this reason, I always try to serve a light dessert. I've shown this sherbet recipe before for summer, but this time I'm using it for the holidays. 
 Beat an egg white and put it in a shallow bowl or plate large enough to accommodate the rim of a martini glass. Dip the rim. Put green colored sugar in another plate. Nestle the wet rim into the sugar and smoosh around until the egg whites are covered. You can do this several hours or even a few days ahead of time.
Pour a teaspoon or so of Creme De Menthe in the bottom of the glass (for an adult dessert) then add a couple of scoops of the sherbet on top. A candy cane swizzle stick and a few Christmas cookies on the plate make the perfect end to a meal. Gorgeous and delicious.

Feed the eye as well as the palate, I always say.

Mmmm, sounds so yummy, beautiful presentation and I like the idea of a lighter desert.

Deanne said...

This looks beautiful and I have got your dessert recipe which is great because it's summer here and I can't have dairy - so a perfect ice cream substitute.

Lisa said...

Just perfect, especially since it's summer here. (Not that you'd know it at the moment)

Lisa said...

Looks light enough to stay up and wait for Santa dessert :)
