Shavuoth(holiday celebrating giving of the Torah - is one of my favorite
jewish holidays. One of my favorite traditions is the eating of sweet dairy foods. Here are a few traditional and not so traditional Shavuoth recipes
This is, again, from vegweb.com. This got absolutely AMAZING reviews over there, so I'm guessing it's pretty darn good (multiple users said it would even fool the dairy lovers)!
A few users suggested only using half the recommended amount of tofu (1 12oz. container). Others said they used turbinado sugar in place of the syrup. Can't wait to try it! Lemme know what you think!
It's good... no kidding! Vegan or not, this dessert is a great dairy free treat. This works for people with diabetic and/or heart disease diet guidelines. Prep time is really chill time... there are about 5 minutes of actual busy work for this recipe, 35 minutes of baking and 2 hours of chilling.
This cheesecake is a recipe rescue! A healthier cheesecake alternative. It is made without a crust, making it low in fat. But if you make it with your favorite crust it's still going to be a lot lighter than many other cheesecakes.
The most evil good tasting dessert I have ever had! Cookware : 10 inch springform pan. And Usually when I cook this cheesecake I get a small crack or two. I found a remedy to this problem though, if you place another rack underneath the cake while cooking containing a bowl of water you will not get any cracks. The water steams up and prevents the cake from cracking this method however will require you to watch more carefully; if you bake it too long the cake will be more like soup. Better to cook and just leave the crack, the taste will more than make up for it I promise!
One of my favorite cookies of all time, these are fabulous warm from oven, but also keep well in an airtight container. My Hungarian/Austrian Grandmom called these "Butterhorns", an aunt on the other side called her version "Schnecken" and I have seen versions of this also under "Rugelach" or "Rululach". It really does not matter what they are called, they are AWESOME!!!! (Chill time not included)
This is one of my favorite Italian desserts and the perfect ending to any Italian dinner. The shells are pretty simple to make, and taste so much better than the ready-made shells you buy in the Italian markets. Note that cooking time also includes chilling time.
This recipe comes from Ronny on the alt.food.vegan newsgroup. Ronny is renowned for her cakes. I haven't yet made this one but I bet right now from past experience of her recipes that it will work very well indeed. Indeed I'm posting it here so that I don't lose it! Times include overnight chilling.
Kreplach are a type of small, filled, savory pastry, usually boiled. They are similar in form to won-tons, but the flavor is quite different. Kreplach are typically filled with meat. These are filled with cheese and are baked. From: So eat, my darling, by Naf Avnon
