Catholic Recipe: Coupe St. Jacques
This is a dessert for James, Jacqueline, Jacquette, Jaime, Seumas or Shamus.
The symbol of St. James the Great, the Apostle of Spain, is a scalloped shell, or a white horse with a white banner.
St. James' shield is red with three gold cockle or scallop shells, two above and one below, narrow end upward. The shell in Christian art signifies pilgrimage. A white horse with a white banner and cross and sword for martyrdom are additional symbols that might be used.
Neatly arrange ice cream and fruit in deep glasses, top with liqueur and garnish with whipped cream. Enjoy!Recipe Source: My Nameday — Come for Dessert by Helen McLoughlin, The Liturgical Press, Collegeville, MN, 1962
