Brazilian Pavês are delicious layered desserts, usually made with a combination of cookies or biscuits and different creams and fruits. I made this recipe for Christmas (I prepared it the day before). It was so easy and delicious. It’s important to let the dessert rest for at least 6 hours in the refrigerator. It’s even better if it can sit in the fridge overnight. Here is what you need:
- 1 package of Maria cookies (usually found in the ethnic/Hispanic foods section of grocery stores)
- 1 can of condensed milk (it can be regular or low fat)
- 1 can of Table Cream Nestle (also know as Crema Media found in the ethnic/Hispanic section or by the condensed and evaporated milks)
- 1 tsp. of vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup of lemon juice
Mix well all the ingredients except the cookies. In a 2-quart glass casserole or 8×8″ dish, place cookies one by one and form a layer to cover the bottom of the casserole. Spread half of the cream mixture over the cookie layer. Top with another layer of cookies. Finish with a layer of the remaining cream. Refrigerate at least 6 hours. Enjoy it!
