Evaporated Milk Whipped Topping
This is an unusually good whipped cream substitute.
1 c. evaporated milk
1/4-1/2 c. powdered sugar
Pour evaporated milk into small mixing bowl. Chill for about 30 minutes. Beat for 1 minute or until very frothy. Gradually add sugar and vanilla; continue beating for 2 minutes or until mixture is stiff. Serve immediately spooned over fresh fruit or your favorite desert. Makes 3 cups.
For Topping that holds up to 30 minutes: Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of gelatin over 2 tablespoons very hot water in small bowl; stir until dissolved. Add to evaporated milk before chilling. After whipping, cover and chill for up to 30 minutes.
