Ingredients
  1. 1¼ cups crushed gingersnaps
  2. 6 tablespoons (¾ stick) butter or margarine, melted
  3. 1 envelope unflavored gelatin
  4. ¼ cup cold water
  5. 1 cup sugar
  6. 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  7. Dash of salt
  8. 2 cups milk
  9. 4 eggs, separated
  10. 2 squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
  11. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  12. 1 tablespoon rum flavoring
  13. ⅛ teaspoon cream of tartar
  14. 1 cup cream, whipped
Instructions
  1. Mix gingersnap crumbs with melted butter or margarine in a small saucepan; press evenly over bottom and side of a 10-inch pie plate.
  2. Bake in a slow oven (300°) 5 minutes; chill.
  3. Soften gelatin in water in a cup; set aside for step 4.
  4. Mix ½ cup of the sugar, cornstarch and salt in a medium-size, heavy saucepan; stir in milk. Cook, stirring constantly, over low heat until mixture thickens and boils 3 minutes. Beat egg yolks slightly in a small bowl; stir in a generous ½ cup of the hot cornstarch mixture, then stir back into the saucepan. Heat, stirring constantly, just 1 minute. Remove from heat; stir in softened gelatin until dissolved.
  5. Strain into a 4-cup measure, then spoon 1 cupful back into saucepan; blend in melted chocolate and vanilla. Pout into chilled crust; chill.
  6. Stir run flavoring into remaining custard; set measure in a pan of ice and water; chill, stirring often, at room temperature just until custard mounds slightly on a spoon.
  7. While custard chills, beat egg whites with cream of tartar until foamy-white and double in volume in a large bowl; beat in remaining ½ cup sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until meringue forms soft peaks. Set bowl in ice and water; fold in chilled custard until fluffy-thick; spoon over chocolate layer. Chill 2 hours, or until firm. Top with whipped cream. To decorate with chocolate, shave thin strips from square of semisweet chocolate with vegetable parer.

Mock Steak

Mock Steak
This was actually from a Lee & Perrins Worcestershire sauce ad. It may seem strange now-a-days to go to such lengths to make, basically, a meatloaf look like steak, but back in the 50s and 60s budgets were tight, and this is how you stretched the paycheck.
