Look at it: isn't it pretty? I bought the cookbook because of that specific recipe.  It looks delicious, and by taking a quick look at the recipe, it seems like the simplest thing to make.  It actually is!  The problem is I NEVER read a recipe that was so ridiculously vague and incomplete, and just plain random.  The final product was yummy, though as my friend Pedro said, it's not something you want to look at for long before you eat it.  And since they didn't really have a name in the book, I named them "The Baby Waterloos"

This is what they looked like in real life:

And this is the annotated recipe.  I didn't bother with the berry sauce, though. I'll just look online for a similar recipe when I try them again.

Ingredients:
Ladyfingers
1 container of berries (good luck with this one)
2 cups of milk
2 egg yolks
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
3 tbsp whipping cream
3 mint leaves
1 lime (lemon should work fine too)

Heat the milk with the grated lime peel. Add the mint leaves and let everything set for 2 hours.

Mix the egg yolks with the sugar and flour. Add the strained warm milk and place the mix back on the stove, allowing it to thicken for 10 minutes. Let it cool, then add the whipping cream and mix gently.

Heat the berries, a glass of water and a tsp of sugar in a small pot. When the mix starts to caramelize, put it in the blender.

In a glass or ramekin, layer berry-sauce-dipped ladyfingers and cream mix. Decorate, refrigerate and serve.

Again, it's a good recipe, but there has to be a better way to make the berry sauce, since I promise the amount of berries that fit in a small pot, along with a glass of water and a tsp of sugar, will not caramelize if your life depends on it.

Haha. Aww... that's unfortunate that it didn't come out the way it looked in the other one but it does look/sound delish. I hate how recipes always have these amazing photos but it NEVER looks like that. Haha. Mine usually looks hideous somehow...
