Irish Coffee With Creamy Topping

Yield 8 servings (about 83 calories per 3/4 cup coffee and 1/2 cup topping)

Ingredients

  • 1 (12-ounce) can evaporated skimmed milk, divided
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons sifted powdered sugar
  • 6 cups hot strong brewed coffee
  • 1/2 cup Irish Whiskey
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons sugar

How to Make It

  1. Pour 1/2 cup milk into a small saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium heat. Place cornstarch in a small bowl; gradually add water, stirring with a wire whisk until blended. Add to simmering milk; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.

  2. Combine cornstarch mixture, remaining 1 cup milk, and vanilla in a large bowl; freeze mixture 1 hour or until a 1/8-inch-thick layer of ice forms on the surface. Beat mixture at high speed of an electric mixer 5 minutes; gradually add sifted powdered sugar, beating until soft peaks form. Cover and chill.

  3. Combine coffee, whiskey, and sugar; stir well. Pour into mugs; spoon topping onto coffee. Serve immediately. Cover and store remaining topping in refrigerator.
