Chestnut Mountain ~ Mont Blanc von Kastanien
Liesl Schneider, Lenauheim

Slowly boil 1 kg peeled chestnuts with ½ liter milk, sugar and a vanilla pod until soft.  Drain any remaining milk and push the chestnuts through a sieve.  Heap on a plate in the shape of a mountain and decorate with whipped cream.

Studded Apples ~ Gespickte Aepfel
Josefa Kern, Warjasch

Peel and core apples and parboil in a syrup of water, sugar and a bit of lemon juice.  Remove from liquid and fill with a mixture of raisins, ground walnuts and whipped cream.  Stud the outside of apples with almond slivers.

Caramel Cream ~ Karamelcreme
Minna H. Deva

Beat 5-6 eggs and 2 tablespoons sugar until foamy.  Stir in ½ liter whipping cream which has been boiled with a piece of vanilla pod.  Caramelize some sugar to a nice brown color.  Pour into a large bowl or several small bowls. Pour in the egg mixture.  Set the bowl/bowls into a pan of simmering water for about 45 minutes.  To prevent air bubbles forming, do not let the water bubble.  The cream is done when an inserted toothpick stays upright.
