Spiced Pears Cream Cheese

Its officially fall (feels more like winter) here in New York and that means its time for some “warm and fuzzy” fall jellos. Sugar and spiced pears over cinnamon cream cheese is the perfect addition to your Thanksgiving feast. This gelatin mold can replace traditional cranberry sauce and be the center of attention on the dinner table or when served up with the pies for dessert.

Coquito

Inspired by Margarita, my Puerto Rican con-worker (at my non-jello day job), and her annual holiday offering of Coquito, Puerto Rico’s version of eggnog, I made a Coquito Jello for this year’s office holiday party. Loaded to the gills with rum (at least the way Margarita makes it) it has a creamy base of coconut milk and sweetened condensed milk and is spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Intoxicatingly delicious!  See the recipe below and have a Merry Christmas!

Pumpkin Spice Latte

According to New York Magazine, pumpkin is the new bacon and the Pumpkin Spiced Latte is really trending this fall. With the return of Starbucks’ seasonal favorite and slew of imitation recipes making the rounds, I decided I best jump on the bandwagon and make my very own pumpkin spice latte jello. More like a custard than a jello, it is made with milk, pumpkin, and coffee. Allspice and cinnamon give it a cozy, warm flavor and whipped cream rounds it out. And best part is that 4 servings of this jello mold will cost you less than a trip to Starbucks. Happy Fall and Happy Halloween!

Inspired by my friend Sydney‘s yearly holiday party tradition of brewing up some yummy hot wassail punch, spiked with dark rum, comes this cold, gelatinous version of the delicious treat.  Its made with apple and cranberry juice, slow simmered with allspice, cloves and an orange. Of course rum is added before it goes in the fridge for cooling and solidifying. This jello mold will be served up at Syd’s holiday party this week and I look forward to seeing how it stands up to its liquid counterpart.  This holiday recipe is another that will appear in my forthcoming book.
