Yield: 12 Servings
|½||Level teaspoon salt|
|1||1/2 level teaspoons vanilla essence (extract, I think)|
Separate the eggs and beat the yolks with the salt and the sugar, until the mixture is thick and creamy. Beat in the cognac, very slowly and put the mixture into a double saucepan. Heat gently, whisking all the time until the advocaat is warm (not hot) and thick. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the vanilla essence. Pour into a jug. Advocaat is served in a glass and eaten with a teaspoon. It can also be topped with whipped cream.
Also, might I add, that advocaat is nothing like the eggnog here in America...it is thick and creamy---not foamy at all. Boy, is Advocaat delicious!
(I usually get a bottle of it from the Dutch-America store and skip the above...:)
This delicious Dutch drink is actually eaten with a spoon! One more from FROM HOLLAND WITH LOVE...the Dutch National drink!!<<GRIN>> Food & Wine RT [*] Category 6, Topic 33 Message 6 Mon Jan 04, 1993 J.BOLLER [Jacquie] at 21:29 EST MM by QBTOMM and Sylvia Steiger, GEnie THE.STEIGERS, CI$ 71511,2253, GT Cookbook echo moderator at net/node 004/005
