Icebox Dessert

When I was a little girl my Great Aunt use to bring a dish to my Grandma’s house. 
I don’t know if it would be considered a salad or dessert. It was pink and the consistency 
I would say of a pudding with dream whip in it.  This was back in the late 50’s or early 60’s.  
She lined a 9 x 13 dish with whole vanilla wafers and then the rest had cherries, nuts and 
maybe coconut in it and was pink. I loved it as a child and never have been able to find a recipe for it.

It was before we had cool whip.

Would happen to have a recipe for such dish?
Thank you,


Hello Pamela,

I cannot find any recipe like that with dream whip, although there are similar recipes with real whipped cream. However, all of the similar recipes that I found had pineapple. See below for examples.


Tropical Dessert

1 1/2 c. vanilla wafers, crushed
1/4 c. butter, melted
1 1/2 c. coconut
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1/2 c. butter
2 eggs
3/4 c. Maraschino cherries, chopped
1 (9 oz.) can crushed pineapple,drained
1 c. broken pecans
1 c. cream, whipped

  Use a 9 x 9 inch pan.  Combine the first three ingredients and put aside 1 cup of the mixture.  
Take the rest of the crumbs and pat them into the bottom of the pan.  Beat the powdered sugar, 
1/2 cup of butter and 2 eggs together.  Add the remaining ingredients and pour over the crust.  
Sprinkle the 1 cup of crumbs over the top.  Refrigerate until ready to use.  Serves 9.
Icebox Dessert

Make 12 - 24 hours in advance 9x9x2" Pan 
2 c. rolled vanilla wafers
2 eggs
1 c. whipping cream, whipped
1 (3 1/2 oz.) can coconut (optional)
1/2 c. butter
2 1/2 c. confectioners' sugar
1 (9 oz.) can crushed pineapple,drained
1/4 c. maraschino cherries (optional)

Place half the vanilla wafer crumbs in the bottom of a 9 x 9 x 2 inch glass baking dish.  
Cream the butter; gradually add the sugar and cream this together until it's light.  
Add eggs and beat well.  Pour this thick mixture over the crumbs. Whip cream until it peaks.  
Fold pineapple and any optional ingredients into the whipped cream and spread this over the 
top of the other mixture.  Sprinkle remaining crumbs over top.  Cover and refrigerate overnight. 
I saw your post about the pink salad or dessert. I think what they are looking for was called "Pink Stuff" 
back in the 50s and 60s. It was popular and the pink color came from cherry pie filling. There were a lot 
of variations, but always Dream Whip or a whipped topping  and cherry pie filling.  Group Recipes has a 
number of these.Here is my version. Pink Stuff  
Note someone posted a a comment and said Rich's Department Store in Atlanta called it a salad. 



Blod Klub Again

Subject: How to prepare blood for klub


Hello Wayne,

None of the recipes that I can find for this give much detail on how to prepare the blood. See below for recipes.

After researching this, I am still a bit confused as to whether "blod klub" is "blood sausage" or "blood dumplings". I am also a bit mystified about what, if any, is the difference between "blod klub" and "blod pølse". Both appear to have similar ingredients and both appear to be traditionally cooked in a cloth bag. "Pølse" is "sausage", but the literal translation of "klub" is quite evasive, although it is used for "dumpling" in some parts of Norway.

The first recipe below gives a bit of info on handling the blood, but not a lot.


Blod  Klub

Ingredients :
A couple quarts pork or beef blood
3 or 4 potatoes, grated
Salt, pepper & spices to suit one's own taste
Flour to make a cake like batter(quite thick)

Preparation :
  (Blood  Sausage)  First use salt according to amount of
blood and ice cubes to cool and keep blood from clotting.
May be baked in cake tins 45 minutes to an hour, topped
with diced lean pork, timing depends on amount in pans
or may also be cooked in bags like Blod Rolse for 1 1/2
to 2 hours depending on size of bags.
Blod Klub
"Farm Recipes and Food Secrets from the Norske Nook"
 By Helen Myhre

3 quarts	blood (see note)
1 cup 		water
1 tablespoon	salt
4 to 5 cups	flour
enough cream to cover (or not)
side pork, fried crisp (or not)

1. Strain the blood through a cloth, then add the water, salt and flour;
mix well (this must be real thick, thicker than pancake batter).
2. Sew some good linen or other white cloth to make a sack 12 inches long
and 5 inches wide.With rough seams to the outside, fill the sack with
batter to three-quarters full.Tie securely, and place it in a large kettle 
of slightly salted boiling water. Boil 2 1/2 hours, or until done (when a
fork comes out dry).
3. Remove the klub from the sack when ready to serve. Slice, and serve it
hot with butter, or cut into pieces and place them in a heavy skillet.
4. Pour in the cream and stir over medium heat until the cream forms a gravy.
5. Serve as is or with crisply fried side pork.(If stored in the refrigerator,
this will keep for several days;see Note.)

Note: Pork blood is best.
  Klub can be frozen, but slice or cube it before you store it in freezer bags
or else it will be impossible to cut when frozen.

Variations: Partially cooked barley or plain rice may be added before the flour,
or you can add diced pork while filling the sacks. If you prefer, the batter 
can be made into dumplings by dropping large balls the size of a mixing spoon 
into boiling salted water. Cook 1/2 hour, and test by breaking one in two; it
should not be doughy.

14 c. ground raw potatoes
1 1/2 c. beef blood
1 c. rye flour

then move to a larger kettle and boil 1 1/2 hours.
