So, when we left me on Sunday, I was rifling through my cupboards, producing dessert.
This is what I located. That’s the last of my Christmas shortbread (a measure of how desperate I was that I gave that up), some chocolate pudding mix, some Starbucks instant coffee, some butter. Not shown is the brick of cream cheese that was defrosting in the microwave.
I crushed the cookies and some graham crackers because there weren’t enough cookies, mixed in some cinnamon and some flour and some melted butter, and threw that in the 400 degree oven for 5 minutes, in a spring form pan.
I mixed the pudding, the coffee and the cream cheese together, adding about a cup less soy milk to the pudding mix and beat the snot out of it until it was smooth.(I may have actually dumped the mix into the blender at this point).
Then I dumped that into the spring form pan and put the whole mess on my front porch to chill.
It turned into this:
If I had it to do over again, I would have added either a bit of plain gelatin or some whipped egg whites to make the mousse more mousse-y. I might have also added some fruit, if I had any that wasn’t frozen. Which I didn’t.
It turns out that emergency dessert worked pretty well, actually.
And this concludes another Cooking Catastrophe’s with Mrs. Spit . . .
