Amma(to herself) : Fast, Think another name!!!! It is Faux Cherry Pannacotta!!! Howzzzat???


1 Can of Mother’s Maid Cherry Pie Filling / 2.5 Cups of Cherry Pie Filling
1/3 Cup of Sugar (adjust according to taste)
1 tsp Vanillai Extract
1/2 Cup Agar/China Grass


  • Soak Agar-Agar in 1 Cup Hot Water for 10 minutes.  I get Agar-Agar/China grass stalks. Whenever i make Pannacotta, i break them into small pieces and Soak them in Hot Water to ease the process of melting while cooking them.
  • Take the Agar-Agar Soaked Water to stove, Cook it in a Very low flame, Do not allow the liquid to boil. Keep it low and Stir to combine and melt. It will start melting after 10 minutes on the low flame. 
  • While this is cooking, Open the can of pie filling, take it in a blender add sugar and blend until smooth. Transfer the blended cherry filling to a sauce pan and start heating in a slow flame. Take care, it will be very thick, so there is a chance of it burning and it might also splutter out of the vessel, so keep the flame low.
  • When it is almost hot, and ready to boil, add vanilla extract and mix well. Now add the melted agar-agar using a strainer. This is to avoid any agar-agar goo getting into the finished dessert. Stir to combine well.
  • Take it off the stove, let it cool for 10 minutes, pour them into moulds and . Let it rest on the Kitchen Counter for 30 mins, then refrigerate atleast 4-5 hours for the Dessert to set. 
  • While Serving, un-mould it on a plate, cut into squares and serve. 
  • To Get more Smiles, Serve it with a blob of Fresh Cream or Whipped cream on top.
