“From the "1 of a Kind" cookbook by the Junior League of Mobile, AL, this is 1 of those little recipes that is big on flavor & has enormous potential to become an invaluable part of your company-worthy & daily family cuisine. I stopped at the 4 in 1 concepts, but I suspect I would need a considerably larger # if I put all my energy into more options. Maybe you guys will try it & expand those options for me. Give it a go & enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix sugar, cornstarch & salt. Gradually mix in the fruit juices & stir to combine.
  2. Cook in top of double boiler over simmering water for 20 min, stirring often.
  3. Remove 1/4 cup of hot mixture & whisk into beaten eggs. Return mixture to pan & cook 5 min more.
  4. Beat hot mixture into cream cheese & refrigerate till well-chilled.
  5. Notes: My mind races w/endless suggestions! Drizzle custard over your favourite pound cake, angel food cake or bundt cake you want to glaze * Serve as dip using graham crackers or gingersnaps as dippers * Use as dressing for fruit salad * Use as sauce for cheesecake, other desserts & in parfaits * Put a spoonfull on top of hot oatmeal & watch your kids stir it in & make quick work of eating their breakfast. Hmmm, I am already past that 4 in 1 #. I will stop now or I will get totally out of control. :-).
