Jane Marsh Cooks: Diva Party Recipes with Color and Poety
Dedication: These Holiday Desserts are dedicated to my eternally memorable mother. Beauty was her life force. Totally, and with color creations of flowers and food-functionally coordinated and displayed with rhythmic merriment and elegance-decorating was food for her soul. In an exhibition reminiscent of Luxury Homes & Gardens, she wrapped one up in the musical whirl of her delivery.
Her diva-like, and incredibly vivid party displays are still, and always will be, Something to Sing About!

Beat butter with sugar and egg yolks until fluffy. Add flour. Fold in egg whites. Cover the bottom of small roasting pan (or ovenproof dish) with milk. Pour mixture in.
