Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Peanut Butter Custard

Today would've been a good day to do some baking, but I came across this simple custard recipe and just HAD to try it. So glad I did!

Makes 6 Servings
1 Serving = 2 PointsPlus™

2 cups fat-free half & half
1/4 cup Splenda granulated
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup reduced-fat creamy peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla

In a medium saucepan, combine the half & half, Splenda and gelatin. Let stand for 5 minutes. Cook and stir over medium heat until the gelatin is dissolved. Remove from heat.

Add peanut butter and vanilla. Whisk until smooth.

Pour evenly into 6 6-ounce custard cups or ramekins. Cover and chill @3 hours or until set.

Mixture will separate into layers while chilling.

Was delicious!!!!

MY SPIN: I used Better'n Peanut Butter. If you use a different peanut butter, you'll have to adjust the PointsPlus™ value.  This can be served 'as is' or with a dollop of fat-free whipped topping.

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!!   *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***

Loving Life!
