Recipe: No-Fail Classic Holiday Dessert Recipes from Jolly Cow Condensada

Growing up, Christmas had always been the most anticipated feast.  I always, always patiently seat near my mom in the kitchen as she prepares different kinds of salads and her winning recipe is a salad for dessert. Ironic?  Well for us Pinoys it isn't, as we would enjoy loads of Fruit Salad during this season.

Cause, let's face it, nothing beats the classic and decadent Filipino desserts.

You too can find joy and comfort from these incredibly affordable recipes that’s made creamier and perfectly sweeter with Jolly Cow Condensada, the all-time favorite dessert ingredient to round out your holiday meal.

Fiesta Fruit Salad

1 can                   Jolly Cow Condensada
1 can (850g)       Jolly Tropical Fruit Cocktail, drained well
1 cup                  Shredded fresh buco (young coconut)
1 cup                   Nata de coco, drained well
1 cup                   Jolly Peach halves, drained well
1 cup                   Pineapple tidbits, drained well
1 cup                   Slices of fresh fruits like apple and seedless grapes (optional)
½ cup                  Cheese, diced (optional)
1 can                   All-purpose cream

1 cup                   Mini marshmallows (optional)
                            Jolly Maraschino cherries (optional)

1. Drain all the water from the cans of the fruit ingredients.
2. Combine all ingredients (except for the marshmallow and cherries) in a large mixing bowl and blend well.
3. Place in a container and chill for 2 to 3 hours before serving.
4. Serve with mini marshmallows as garnish on top and finish off with a cherry if desired.

Makes 8 to 10 servings.

Pinoy Leche Flan

1 can (390g) of Jolly Cow Condensada
1 can (370ml) evaporated milk
10 egg yolks
1 teaspoon of grated dayap or lemon peel
1 cup of white sugar

1. Put sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over low fire until the sugar caramelizes.
2. Pour the caramelized sugar equally into three llaneras. Evenly coat the caramelized sugar on the bottom of the llanera. Set aside.
3. In a bowl, gently mix together the Jolly Cow Condensada, evaporated milk, egg yolks and the grated dayap. Make sure to gently mix so as not to create bubbles on the mixture.
4. Gently and evenly pour the mixture on the llaneras containing the caramelized sugar.
5. Cover each llanera with aluminum foil.
6. Steam for about 30 minutes or until firm (steaming time may depend on the thickness of the llanera).
7. Cool and then refrigerate.

Tip: You can tell when the leche flan is fully cooked by inserting a knife in the middle of the mixture--if the knife comes clean, it is fully cooked.

Makes three llaneras.
