Every Tuesday I'll be featuring a graphic from one of these very fine cookbooks. This is part one in a four-part series from "Quick Dinners for the Woman in a Hurry Cookbook" (1942).
Our sad heroine makes do with only her dachshund, while craving a more masculine brand of company. Even prune whip does not make her feel better. Will her dreams ever come true? Tune in next week.
5 cooked prunes, drained
1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
1 teaspoon orange juice
1/4 cup heavy cream, whipped
Pit and cut prunes, mix with next 2 ingredients and chill. Whip cream, add chilled mixture and top with maraschino cherry if desired.
