Cheap, fast and fun Christmas desserts
I already know what the main course was going to be this year, but I am still thinking about the desserts. I don't want icecream this year, so what is it going to be?
So I surfed around the internet, read books, asked my family. And then I got the stupid idea to publish some here. Recepies aren't stupid, but translating them from Dutch into English was the hardest thing I have done until now and it might be the last time too ...
But I tried and I hope you'll understand and if you find something I could translate differently; tell me, mail me, what ever, so before Christmas they will be perfect:)
And since I spend so much time on translating and maybe you'll need some time to understand, so some fast desserts might just the thing we need here.
Snowballs with vanilla sauce

Number of persons:1
What do you need:
- dish - mixer. - pan - 2 soup-ladles. - skimmer.
- 4 white of eggs. - 100 gram powdered sugar, - 1/2 liter milk. - vanilla sauce.
It's a specialty from Austria. The balls are shaped with two soup ladles. Mix the egg white into a firm mass, add the powdered sugar and mix it again. It will get even firmer. Heat the milk. Be careful, you can’t let the milk cook.
Shape the balls with the soupladles. Put them in the milk which you keep warm. Wait till the balls swell. Turn them carefully and just leave them in the milk for a little while. Get them out with the skimmer. Regulary ad some new cold milk and slowly heat this again.
You can eat the snowballs when they’re cold with warm vanilla sauce. When you eat them while they’re hot, use cold vanilla sauce
