One-half package of Cox's gelatine, three eggs, two cups sugar, one large cup boiling water, one pint milk, juice of one lemon. Soak the gelatine one hour in a teacupful of cold water. Then stir in two-thirds of the sugar, the lemon juice and the boiling water. Beat the whites of the eggs to a stiff froth, and when the strained gelatine is quite cold, whip it into the whites, a spoonful at a time—for half an hour if you use the Dover egg beater, at least an hour with any other. When all is white and stiff, pour into a wet mold. Make the custard of the sugar, yolks and milk; flavor with vanilla. Boil until it begins to thicken. When the meringue is turned into the dish, pour the cold custard about the base.
