a simple song and a simple recipe

Ginger Pizookie with Pineapple Custard

2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cup sugar
1tsp salt
2 large eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp lemon juice
1 cup crystalized ginger
1 cup milk


Pre-heat oven at 350 F.

Grease a round 9" pan with butter.

In a mixing bowl,  mix together flour, baking soda and baking powder.  Add in the ground ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, crystallized ginger.salt and sugar.

In another bowl beat the eggs.  Pour in the milk. Add the flour mixture little by little.  Add lemon juice and mix thoroughly.

Pour into a baking pan until 1/3 full. (you could opt to have a thicker pizookie by pouring more cake mixture) 
Bake for about 10 - 15 minutes or until a toothpick com Let it cool.

For the Pineapple Custard: (you could use the custard on your ice cream, waffle, etc.)

1 can condensed milk
2 eggs
3 tbsp cream cheese (full spoonfuls)
2/3 cup heavy cream (I use a small can of Nestle's cream)
1 tsp vanilla
a pinch of salt
1/2 can pineapple tidbits (you could use fresh pineapples too)

Using a whisk combine eggs and condensed milk and vanilla.  Cook in the top of the double boiler, stirring constantly over slowly simmering water until thickened.  Remove from heat immediately and let it cool.

On a another bowl, cream the cream cheese until soft.  Add heavy cream  Pour the custard mixture and mix them together.  Add a pinch of salt.  Add pineapple tidbits.

Spread the Pineapple Custard over the ginger pizookie and voila you will soon enjoy a delightful holiday treat.
