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
Delicious vegan version of cream cheese. So good on celery sticks or crackers! And you can adjust the seasonings to your taste. I like to add a couple cloves of fresh garlic and some dried herbs. From The Uncheese Cookbook by Joanne Stepaniak.
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 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.
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!
This recipe originates from "Gourmet" magazine. You will find several Dulce De Leche Sauce recipes here on Zaar. I recommend the one which calls for the following three ingredients: whipping cream, dark brown sugar and sweetened condensed milk. It's very easy to prepare and wonderful also served over fried bananas and/or vanilla ice-cream. But beware: Dulce De Leche is very addictive!
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
I have looked high and low for this wonderful sweet from my childhood to no avail. I finally came up with a version that is very much the same in taste if not in looks. This is a treat for young and old alike. This recipe comes from one similar in an old cookbook from Temple Beth Israel with which I experimented.
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)
