Whites of 6 eggs 2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vinegar 1 teaspoon vanilla
Beat the whites dry and stiff, adding the sugar a little at a time and then the vinegar and vanilla, beating constantly. Use a spring form. Grease and pour in about two-thirds of the mixture. Form a circle of the remaining third around the edge of the tin. Bake three-quarters to one hour in a slow oven.
Line the bottom of a melon or spring form with lady fingers, separated and with the curved sides toward the pan. Place the filling on the layer of lady fingers, and arrange in layers until the form is full or the material used up. Finish the top with a few lady fingers laid in spokes from the center. Stand in the icebox for twenty-four hours. When ready to serve, remove the band of the form and serve on the metal bottom on the platter. Cover with sweetened whipped cream and chopped nuts or candied cherries, etc
Filling: Melt one-half pound sweet chocolate in a double boiler, add three tablespoons sugar. Beat yolks of four eggs and stir in three tablespoons water. Cook slowly with the chocolate in the double boiler until the sauce is smooth and thick; stir all the while to make smooth. Cool and add the white beaten stiff. Use this filling as directed above. Such a filling will require two and a half dozen lady fingers.
1/2 cup butter 1 cup water 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour 3 eggs Vanilla
Boil the butter and water in a saucepan. Add the flour and salt and cook for a minute, stirring constantly. Remove from the flame, add the beaten eggs and the vanilla flavor. Stir all the while the eggs are being poured in. Line the baking pan with waxed paper and drop the batter from a big spoon, heaping more dough in the center than on the edges. Bake for half an hour in a hot oven (400 degrees) and cool. Split and fill with whipped cream; sprinkle powdered sugar on the top. Chopped maraschino cherries may be mixed with the whipped cream filling. Custard may also be used.
