Our favorite dessert: Junket!

As a child growing up in Little Falls NJ in the 40s and early 50s, my mother would make for my sister and me our favorite dessert: Junket! She made it even better by putting a little piece of cardboard on the top; the cardboard had a happy pumpkin-like face cut out; and she sprinkled nutmeg through the openings so that when the cardboard was removed, the happy face remained! That was a delicious dessert and is a very happy memory of mine!
Thank you!
