Mexican Dessert Tips

If you're out of cinnamon, substitute with nutmeg or allspice (use only 1/4 of the amount).

Never refreeze melted ice cream, cream pies, eclairs or similar foods.

Sugar-Free/Low-Sugar Cooking

Decreasing the sugar amount by 1/3 to 1/2 does not usually affect the recipe's chemistry too much, although the texture can sometimes be a bit different (for example, brownies will be cakier and less fudge-like).
