Hello and Welcome! I’ve wanted to share this recipe for a while now and since today is Tuesday (Baking 101 on the schedule), I thought what better way to start this section with a recipe I developed a few summers ago? This recipe was a submission to a Splenda contest for Latin American Desserts and althought I did not win a grand-prize, I won a gift pack of Splenda products: flavored Splendas, Brown Sugar Splenda, Baking Splenda and tons more! I later entered it in a local newspaper contest while on extern in Colorado Springs and won a $100 gift card for groceries! So this recipe is the gift that keeps on giving!
Majarete is typically made in smalls cups and is a corn-based custard, served with a sprinkle of Cinnamon for that extra boost of antioxidants! Since everyone loves “pies”, I adapted the custard to fill a cookie crust with and baked it. Served with mango and ginger slices, nothing says Welcome Spring! than this bright dessert!
