I love gelatin desserts.
You can buy them at the supermarket or even at the craft fair.
I like them so much that I’ve made a recipe that you can make in a pinch at home.
And I like to keep the recipe a secret.
I’ve been a vegetarian for more than 40 years.
When I go to a dinner party, my kids are always begging for something sweet.
And the one thing they’re all craving is gelatin.
They ask me, “Mom, can you make me some gelatin?”
And I say, “Sure, just make it as thin as possible and put it in a cake.
Just use the gelatine from your pie crust.”
But they ask, “Can you make the pie crust?”
I say no.
The kids want the pie, and it takes a while to get it out of the oven.
So I say make the gelatin, make the crust, and then make the cake.
The result is a pie crust that is perfect for dessert.
I also like to make these gelatines with a lemon curd, as well.
And when I’m making this, I usually add some lemon juice.
It’s not only healthy for you, it’s also great for the planet.
Gelatin is rich in the amino acid leucine, and is found in most fruits and vegetables.
I love eating these delicious desserts, but I think they also have a lot of health benefits.
So how do you make a gelatined pie crust?
Here’s how to make it. 1.
Combine the gelatin ingredients in a bowl.
Add a tablespoon of water.
Pour the water into the gelatin mixture and mix until it forms a smooth ball.
The more water that’s added to the mixture, the thicker it will be. 4.
Place the gelatin balls on the bottom of a cake pan and bake at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes.
The gelatini will be very thick.
Remove from the oven and cool completely.
The cake should be completely cooled, but the pie will still be very soft.
Store the gelato in the refrigerator for up to a week.
This will give the gelati a chance to firm up and thicken.
To make the glaze, combine the lemon juice with the gelatin and whisk until smooth.
Store in the fridge for up 30 days or in the freezer for up 10 days.
The gelatin will be quite thick and will harden when chilled.
To serve, pour the gelatum over the pie and drizzle with a little bit of lemon juice, if desired.
