Festive Cherry-Eggnog Mold

Festive Cherry-Eggnog Mold

From Midwest Living Magazine. Another tried and tue for me. Very pretty and very good. Sue

1 3-ounce package (12) ladyfingers, split lengthwise
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
2/3 cup cold water
3 cups dairy eggnog
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Few drops rum flavoring or 2 tablespoons white creme de cacao
1 8-ounce can crushed pineapple, drained
1 10-ounce jar maraschino cherries, drained and chopped
1 cup whipping cream
Whipped cream

In a 2-1/2-quart souffle dish or straight-sided serving bowl, arrange split ladyfingers around sides and over bottom of dish. Set aside.

In a saucepan, combine powdered sugar and unflavored gelatin. Add cold water and let stand for 1 minute to soften gelatin. Stir over low heat until gelatin dissolves. Remove from heat. Let stand for 5 minutes or until slightly cooled.

In a large bowl, combine the eggnog, vanilla, nutmeg, and rum flavoring. Stir in gelatin mixture. Chill until partially set (about 10 minutes).

Fold in the cherries and pineapple.

Beat the 1 cup whipping cream until soft peaks form; fold the whipped cream into eggnog-fruit mixture.

Turn mixture into ladyfinger-lined dish. Cover and chill for 6 to 24 hours. If you like, pipe more whipped cream around edge. Makes 12 to 14 servings. Enjoy.
