Yield: 2 Servings
|\N \N||Butter and sugar for preparing bowls|
|¾ tablespoon||Finely grated orange rind|
|3 \N||Egg yolks|
|1½ tablespoon||Grand Marnier|
|4 \N||Egg whites|
|1 pinch||Cream of tartar|
Place rack in middle of oven and preheat oven to 400ø. Butter well the sides and bottom of 2 (12-oz) souffl bowls. Sprinkle them with sugar, dumping out the excess sugar. Measure and mix together the cornstarch, ¼ cup sugar and salt. Place the butter and milk in a heavy saucepan and while still cold, stir in the above dry ingredients and the grated orange rind.
Cook the mixture over medium heat, stirring constantly with a wire whip until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat and thoroughly stir in the egg yolks and the Grand Marnier. Beat the egg whites with the cream of tartar until limp. Add 2 Tablespoons sugar and continue beating at high speed to develop a good meringue. Take half of the beaten egg whites and, using a rubber spatula, stir them into the sauce to lighten it. Give the remaining egg whites several good whips and then fold them into the lightened sauce.
Do not overfold as you will deflate the mixture. Divide the mixture between the prepared bowls. (At this point, you may delay baking the souffls for up to 30 minutes). Place the souffls in the preheated oven and cook for 15 minutes. Serve immediately. Yield: 2 generous servings.
