Serves 6 to 8
Here's an easy, make-ahead dessert that is perfect for a brunch, afternoon tea or an outdoor dinner party. Layer the recipe in a large glass bowl instead of individual dishes, if you like. For a more sophisticated, elegant flavor, use the optional Riesling wine.
No-Cook Cherry Pudding
1 pound cherries, divided
1 (12.3-ounce) package Mori-Nu Extra-Firm Silken Tofu
1/4 cup water (or Riesling wine)
1 (4-ounce) package Mori-Nu Mates Vanilla Low-Fat Pudding Mix
1 tablespoon lemon zest
30 to 40 lemon wafer cookies
Set aside 6 to 8 cherries for garnish. Stem, pit and roughly chop remaining cherries. Put tofu and water or Riesling into a food processor and purée until smooth. Add pudding mix and zest and purée again until perfectly smooth, about 2 minutes; transfer to a bowl and fold in chopped cherries. Place one lemon wafer in the bottom of each of 6 to 8 small ramekins or bowls. Divide pudding mixture between bowls and then line the inside edge of each bowl with remaining lemon wafers; cover and chill 1 to 2 hours, garnish with reserved cherries and serve.
