Yule Baked Alaska (Nfld style)

2 qts. chocolate ice cream or desired flavour
1 tsp. cream of tartar
2 tbsp. Screech
5 large bananas
8 egg whites
1 cup sugar

Pack ice cream into a narrow 6-cup mold. Cover and freeze until firm. Unmold ice cream onto cold board (do not use metal). Peel 3 bananas. Cut in half lengthwise and again into halves crosswise. Press sides of molded ice cream. Peel remaining bananas. Cut into slices and pile on top of molded ice cream. Place in freezer, while preparing meringue.
In a large mixing bowl, beat egg whites with cream of tartar, until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in sugar and continue beating until very stiff, approximately 15 minutes. Remove ice cream from freezer. Spread meringue over bananas and ice cream, making sure meringue touches board all around. Make a depression 1 inch deep in top of meringue.
Bake in pre-heated oven 450*F for 3 minutes, or until meringue is lightly golden. Warm Screech and pour into depression in top of meringue. Ignite and serve.
