|Taste of Home's Soft Orange Custard!|
I love custards. They remind me of growing up. My mom used to make something called Junkett Rennet Custard in flavors like chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. We loved it. I used to make baked egg custards for my own children when they were young. Custard pie, and coconut custard pie, rank right up there among desserts I MUST have if they are on the menu! Custards also remind me of a stand that we'd stop at near the Catskill Game Farm where soft-serve was then "frozen custard." It was always something when my Dad would go up to the window and order 9 cones! A good 50-plus years later (yikes!), I still remember the cool, rich, creaminess of that frozen custard. Most people probably remember family outings by location or event -- I remember the foods we ate (big shocker!)...
I haven't tried this recipe yet, but it has good reviews, and the photo (from Taste of Home's site) is just soooo pretty! I think that alone provides all the credibility necessary for my recommendation to you. What a lovely dessert it would be for company, or just you!
