RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE
ICE CREAM PARFAIT TARTS, American
Dissolve gelatin in hot water in 2-quart saucepan. Add concentrated orange juice. Add ice cream by spoonfuls, stirring until melted. Then chill until thickened but not set (10 to 20 minutes). Turn into tart shells. Chill until firm (15 to 25 minutes). Just before serving arrange pastry ears, candies, and coconut to make a cat face.
Pastry ears: Cut 10 triangles from pastry scraps. Draw line in pastry from point of triangle to the base using a tooth pick. Shape point. Prick with fork. Place on baking sheet and bake in hot oven (425 degrees F.) 5 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned.
If tart shells filled with cat faces seem like too much work for the party you are planning with many guests invited, the cats can still appear at your party in festive form. These Halloween Tom Cats are made with marshmallows and shredded rice biscuits with bits of candy for decoration. No artistic talent is needed, just some jelly beans and a few long straggles of coconut shreds, for the cat's whiskers, of course.
