Christmas Puff

This may be the only recipe in which you get to use an electric beater in a pan you've just taken off the burner. "I kept thinking 'This is weird, this can't work,' but it does, and it is not difficult," Hope Barron assures cooks. Indeed, it's simply a question of spreading a "crust" layer with your hands, smoothing a "rising" layer over it, baking and then frosting it. "It is so yummy," Hope adds -- and she's right again.
