LIB VINSON'S PRUNE WHIP
Lib Vinson is one of my favorite people in the world. She's Carolyn Vinson Nespoli's mom, and when we were
growing up, every time Carolyn was responsible for bringing a dessert or a dish to something at the church or
elsewhere, she always got her mom to make prune whip, and everybody loved it.
The only thing I didn't like about Mrs. Vinson's prune whip was the name. It was almost as if they had focus
grouped a bunch of teenagers in the 1960's and asked them, "What's the grossest name for a dessert you can
think of?" But I digress.
Like I said, everybody loved it--and her.
4 egg whites beaten
8 T sugar
1 cup unsweetened chopped cooked prunes (I guess it's possible
that such thing exists.)
1/2 cup chipped nuts
1. Beat eggs, mix in sugar
2. Add prunes and nuts.
3. Bake at 350 degrees until brown.
Serve with whipped cream.
