Everyone on television's Mister Rogers Neighborhood loves Snow Pudding. It tastes good but most of all it is fun to prepare. Mr. Rogers describes how he makes snow you can eat: "Presto! An egg white so clear you can see through it plops into the mixing bowl and in just a minute an egg beater whips it into a fluffy mountain." Add the other ingredients and the fluffy mountain tastes different from any snow that has ever melted in your mouth!Interested in giving it a try? Here's the recipe:
