Ever wonder why the people over at Kraft foods didn’t expand the JELL-O brand? They make a gelatin, a pudding and a pie filling for cream pies. For three separate desserts. Why didn’t anyone try to combine the qualities of gelatin with the qualities of pudding? Well, tradition never stopped AFC Global from experimenting with a new concept. Here are the results! Combining a juice with the cream produces a gelatin-like cream. You don’t need the actual gelatin nor agar to produce something unique yet familiar and enjoyable!
Oh, and served in a carob cookie cider pie crust! Topped with dairy free whip cream!
These bakers can be used for applesauce by removing all the pulp after they’ve been baked and combining it with the juices left in the baking dish. Or, they can be stuffed after they’re baked and chilled with a frozen custard, then drizzled with a Creamy Orange Ginger Sauce, then sprinkled with Crystallized Ginger Pine Nut Topping as we did here – this time!
Do you like pudding? Do you like jam? Then how about a pudding jam? Amply spread it on your favorite toasted breads or spoon it over your favorite dairy free ice-cream!
