Jenna Unrue, owner and chef of 4 Birds Bakery joined us today with a recipe that’s sure to be a hit at your 4th of July event, Whipped Summer Berry Custard. She also announced the Bakery’s new Monthly Charity Cookie initiative.
They will make a different cookie every month and the proceeds will go toward a different charity. This month’s cookie is apricot lavender flavored, and the proceeds will benefit KHEPRW. It’s an organization that works with the youth, provides them with mentors, and helps them through different areas of life, like STEM, agriculture, and running a business. You can purchase these cookies through Market Wagon and the Farmer’s market until the end of July.
Summer Berry Custard
This dessert is extremely versatile, making it easy to throw together for any occasion! It can be made in individual portions or it would look beautiful in a glass bowl. If needed, dairy free milk substitutes can be used for the pudding as well as gluten free cookies. You can also add whatever flavoring you want to the pudding by adding chips, zests or extracts (chocolate chips, citrus zest, almond extract etc.) Feel free to change up the fruit too! A banana version with our Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip cookies would work as well. Or try adding orange zest to the pudding to go with our Cinnamon Cranberry cookies. The possibilities are endless!
