2-1/2 tbl. unflavored gelatin
3 egg yolks
3 cups milk
5oz. strawberry cordial

3 egg whites
1/4 cup sugar

Cook and stir over boiling water until gelatin is dissolved, about 5 min. Remove from heat and stir in strawberry cordial and vanilla. Chill until mixture mounds when dropped a spoon. Beat egg whites until frothy. Gradually add second portion of sugar and beat until stiff peaks form. Whip chilled cream with balance of sugar until soft peaks form.
