Here's an easy, make-ahead dessert that is perfect for a brunch, afternoon tea or an outdoor dinner party. Layer the recipe in a large glass bowl instead of individual dishes, if you like. For a more sophisticated, elegant flavor, use the optional Riesling wine.
Ingredients: 
  • 1 pound cherries, divided
  • 1 (12.3-ounce) package extra-firm silken tofu
  • 1/4 cup Riesling wine or water
  • 1 (4-ounce) package vanilla low-fat pudding mix
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 30 lemon wafer cookies
Method: 
Set aside 6 to 8 cherries for garnish. Stem, pit and roughly chop remaining cherries. Put tofu and Riesling into a food processor and purée until smooth. Add pudding mix and zest and purée again until perfectly smooth, about 2 minutes; transfer to a bowl and fold in chopped cherries. Place one lemon wafer in the bottom of each of 6 to 8 small ramekins or bowls, then line the inside edge of each bowl with remaining lemon wafers. Divide pudding mixture between bowls and cover and chill 1 to 2 hours. Garnish with reserved cherries and serve.
