“Thsi is a delicious non-dairy cream topping for your favorite pies. I made this for Thanksgiving 2009 to serve with my pumpking and apple pies, and it was AMAZING! Please only use RAW cashew pieces, roasted or salted cashew pieces will make this too dark and taste more like nuts rather than cream. This can but put into the freezer for 10-15 mintues before serving to increase its thickness. You can soak the cashews in the water ahead of time to soften them a bit, but it is not necessary.”
