Helen's 24 Hour Salad

This sounds like a delicious fruit salad. Do not be deterred because of the cooked dressing.

Helen's 24 Hour Salad

1 lb. marshmallows
1 can chunk pineapple
1 can white cherries, halved
1 lb. white grapes, halved
1 cup chopped pecans or almonds
4 egg yolks
1 cup coffee cream
Juice of one lemon
1 pint whipping cream, whipped
1/2 cup sugar

Boil sugar, coffee cream, and egg yolks until mixture coats back of spoon. Stir in marshmallows and melt. Add lemon juice. When dressing is cool add fruit to mixture. Top with whipped cream and nuts.
*I would use a double boiler to make sure this mixture does not scorch.
