NUT BUTTERS & SPREADS

Beer Nut And Walnut Butter Spread

BEER NUT AND WALNUT BUTTER SPREAD

Of course this is a high fat spread, but compared to others it’s more nutrient and fiber dense. The grainy texture is more reminiscent of grainy crystals than peanuts. A higher powered food processor would produce a creamier texture, if that’s what you want. I like rustic for this, because I like those fine crystals! Spread on your favorite toasted breads and drizzle with heated jams and/or maple syrup!

Makes approx. 4 cups

Holiday Nog And Apple Cider Pie

HOLIDAY NOG AND APPLE CIDER PIE

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!

Makes 1, 9 inch pie
