Easter Egg Dessert
For nest, fill ring mould with lemon jelly. Wash 12 large eggs, make a pin hole in one end of each shell, a larger opening in the other end and shake out the contents. Rinse the shells in cold water. Set each shell upright in a narrow glass or cup, and then fill with coffee, orange or other colored gelatin mixtures. Set aside in a cool place to harden overnight. In serving, invert the ring on a large platter to form a nest. Roll and crumble the egg shells and the jelly will come out in perfect egg forms; place eggs in nest and serve cold with cream.
