Oh, I cannot believe you printed this recipe. I have been craving good cashew cream, and here it is! THANK YOU! I had cashew cream for the first time well over 15 years ago, and have not come across it since, but just over the last few weeks, I have been dreaming about it!

Okay, now that sounds very interesting, but may I ask what you serve it with? I've never had it before.

Brenda, cashew cream is used as a dessert toppping. It is good served with cakes, pies, and puddings. It adds a rich, creamy flavor and texture and is a good replacement for dairy toppings.
