Silken Nut Cream

Delicious Living Staff
  • Prep Time: 15 mins

Yields 1/2 pint. This rich-tasting, rice syrup-sweetened, dairy-free cream tastes too good to be true. It turns simple fruit into a sophisticated dessert, enhances strawberry shortcake, and adds an elegant finishing touch to cobblers, crisps, puddings and mousses.

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread nuts out evenly on a baking sheet. Toast nuts in oven 5 to 8 minutes just until light gold in color but not browned.
  2. Grind nuts finely in a food processor or blender. Add rice syrup, salt, extracts and water. Process again until smooth and creamy, about 10 minutes. Refrigerate nut cream until ready to use.

Note: Refrigerated nut cream keeps at least 2 weeks; frozen, 1 month.
