Recipes for our Gourmet Wine Jellies

Apple Dessert Topping

For a quick hot apple topping, peel and slice apples. Put into microwave proof dish. Spoon some Cinnamon Chardonnay Wine Jelly over the apples. About a tablespoon per apple should be sufficient. Heat in microwave for 1 to 2 minutes. Pour hot Apple Dessert Topping over:

  • Angel Food Cake
  • Ice Cream
  • Pound Cake
  • Hot Cakes or Waffles

Pumpkin Chardonnay and Ginger Chardonnay will also work well with this for a slightly different flavor.

Bisquick Muffins with a Twist

  • 2 Cups Bisquick
  • 3/4 Cup Milk
  • 1 Egg
  • Wine Jelly **

** Any flavor of wine jelly will work with this recipe.

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix first four ingredients. Beat vigorously with a spoon for 1/2 minute. Fill 12 greased (or use baking cups) medium sized muffin cups 1/3 full. Spoon a dollop of wine jelly into the center of each muffin cup. Fill cups to 2/3 full with remaining batter. Bake 15 minutes. For richer muffins add 2 extra Tablespoons sugar and 2 Tablespoons shortening.

Stuffed Chicken Breasts

  • 6 Boneless Chicken Breasts (pounded flat)
  • 8 Ounces Cream Cheese
  • 1 Onion, Diced Salt &Pepper
  • 1/4 Cup Wine Jelly

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place chicken breasts between wax paper and pound to flatten. Combine cream cheese and wine jelly in food processor and process until smooth.

Place 1/6 of the cream cheese mixture and a spoonful of onion on each chicken breast. Roll up and secure with a tooth pick. Place in shallow baking dish. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper, if desired. Bake uncovered 35 minutes. Serve hot with additional wine jelly sauce if desired. Combine wine jelly with sour cream or plain yogurt and drizzle over top. If you desire additional "color" in the dish, lay slivered carrots or green onion in breast before rolling.
