Mother made this often this during WW II when sugar was rationed. You can use any flavor gelatin (I personally like the green lime). It is a light sweet especially good after a heavy meal or during warm weather.

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the gelatin and boiling water until dissolved. Refrigerate until thickened to the consistency of egg whites, about 1 hour.
  2. When the gelatin is thick, whip the evaporated milk in a chilled bowl with chilled beaters until thick enough to form peaks like whipped cream. Fold the whipped milk into the gelatin. Rinse an 8 cup mold and fill with the gelatin mixture. Cover and refrigerate overnight, or at least until set, about 4 hours.
  3. Unmold the gelatin onto a serving dish and sprinkle with cookie crumbs. Put the rest of the crumbs into a bowl and pass around the table at serving time.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

OMG, I have been looking for this recipe for years, I just couldn't quite remember it. My Mum made it for us as kids and it is light, fluffy, very inexpensive and yummy. We would always just put it in a big bowl and serve it out like pudding. Thanks so much taking me back in time.
