Artificial Dessert Cheese

I wouldn't have believed it either. Who, in this day and age, would want to eat anything named (labeled) "Artificial". After all, Mike Nichols did make The Graduate, so what more is there to say but to give the recipe:

Artificial Dessert Cheese
In the lavish days of olde England Artificial Dessert Cheese was made by mixing one quart of cream with two of milk and spiking it with powdered cinnamon, nutmeg and mace. Four beaten eggs were then stirred in with one-half cup of white vinegar and the mixture boiled to a curd. It was then poured into a cheesecloth and hung up to drain six to eight hours. When taken out of the cloth it was further flavored with rose water, sweetened with castor sugar, left to ripen for an hour or two and finally served up with more cream.

And as you, dear reader, should be skeptical of the existance of this, I give a screen print from the cookbook I found this in.
