Vintage Recipe Thursday: Cherry Mousse Recipe

Welcome back to Vintage Recipe Thursday. Please link your family or cookbook recipes in the linky below and enjoy visiting each other. :-)

Today, I'm sharing with you a cherry mousse recipe, because you know I love cherries.  :-)  If they are not quite in season yet in your state, fear not, this recipe actually calls for canned cherries.  There are only 4 ingredients, and if you use a can of whipped cream, you'll save yourself a step.  Where Mrs. Elasky tells you to pack it in ice and salt, just place it in that "new invention" called a freezer.  ;-)  And in case any of you are wondering about the salt, that was just to make the ice colder.

Cherry Mousse Recipe
2 cups whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 cup drained, canned cherries

Sweeten cherries to taste.  Chill.  Whip cream.  Add sugar and extract.  Carefully fold in cherries.  Pour into mold.  Pack in ice and salt.  Let stand 4 hours.  8 servings.  Mrs. M. Elasky, Minneapolis, Minn.
