HALLOWEEN BANQUET - DAY 7 - THE DESSERT
FROM LES RECETTES PRIVEES DE WILHELMINE
I like to save the best for last. And this dessert is a winner all the way.
One of Wilhelmine’s clients came to her one day with an extremely difficult problem. Because of his looks--his nose was huge, his face completely covered in warts, and he was so bow-legged everyone who saw him screamed with laughter and no woman wanted him anywhere near her. However, beneath the ugly outer covering was a dear sweet man who just wanted to find a woman he could love and who would love him in return. Actually, he’d found the woman, but she wouldn’t even look at him, let alone allow him to pay her court, and the poor fellow didn’t know what to do.
He’d consulted Wilhelmina, but according to the notes in her recipe book, Wilhelmine had begun to think his problem was insoluble, until someone left a basket of golden peaches on her doorstep as a gift, and suddenly she had an idea for the sweetest dessert this side of heaven.
Wilhelmine made a note in the margin to the effect that once the woman tasted this dessert, she couldn’t say “yes” quickly enough.

Then, carefully pour the fruit and cream mixture on top of the ladyfingers. You’ll need to keep pushing the ladyfinger pieces down with a spoon until they absorb the liquid.
