We’ve been really lucky to keep our power and water, and only had a temporary pipe freeze, but feeling heartbroken for all the people in Texas who have gone through the freezing nightmare.
We have food but running out of some essentials like eggs, milk, and flour. Not deadly by any means but it made me realize how much baking I’d been doing. A form of therapy, no doubt.
Saturdays are for making dessert. So I had to do with what we still have in the house. It had to be eggless, flourless, and without milk.
- 3 granola bars, a “crunchy” kind (I used Oats & Honey). Or about 1 cup of graham cracker crumbs
- 2 8 oz packages of cream cheese, soft
- 1 14 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
- 2 firm pears
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 – 2 tsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ginger and 1/4 tsp nutmeg
