Recipes were included as lagniappe in the five books (plus a novella) of the Louisiana Gentlemen series, published 1998 – 2002. Since that time, I've had hundreds of letters and emails about KANE, LUKE, ROAN, CLAY, WADE and ADAM, the majority from people who had lost track of the books but wanted the recipes again! Posting them here on the blog will make them available once more for everyone. Slight adjustments have been made to the originals for clarity and consistency.
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 8-ounce can cream of coconut
In a mixer, combine all ingredients and beat on medium speed until smooth. Serve with fresh fruit such as strawberries, apple or orange slices, large seedless grapes, pineapple chunks or melon.
Thickness of the dip may be adjusted by adding more or less cream of coconut.
