Whenever the ביטטשין’ קיך Supperclub Challenge is a dessert, I cringe. I am not good at making desserts. But I am also not one to shy away from a challenge and this dessert of Nadia G’s was a big one.
Since I don’t normally make desserts, I didn’t even have the appropriate equipment. I had to go out and buy a hand mixer, a metal bowl and a pie plate.
Then not only did I have to make this dessert vegan and gluten-free but I had to learn how to make vegan whipped cream. That was a sweet success which I shared with you in the last post along with the recipe for Chocolate Mousse.
So with a bag of gluten-free pretzels, a tub of vegan cream cheese (Galaxy is my favorite) and my new equipment, I set out to attempt the challenge. It was pretty fun and it was soooo delicious. I don’t even like sweets or desserts but I do like peanut butter and cream cheese together. I eat the combo on my waffles for breakfast. The peanut butter and cream cheese filling was decadent, rich and addictive. The crunchy, salty pretzel pie crust complements the creaminess of the pie perfectly.
I am so grateful for the BK Supperclub Challenges for making me break out of my (pie) shell (HAHAHAHA) and learn new things. This is an easy to make dessert that will really wow the crowd. And you don’t even have to turn the oven on. This is definitely my kind of dessert!
