IN A MIXING bowl, combine all-purpose cream, fresh milk and condensed milk.Mix until stiff. Set aside and chill.

Check your fridge and see if you still have leftover biscuits, cookies, food for the gods, brownies, etc. What to do with them? Transform them into a delicious no-bake dessert called Serradura.

Serradura, also known as Macau Sawdust Pudding, is a Portuguese dessert consisting of sweet cream and crushed biscuits or cookies. It’s usually presented in a glass layered with the cream and biscuits and topped with fruits.

Chef KC Jardin of San Miguel Food Inc. demonstrates how this easy-to-do dessert is prepared with only few ingredients needed.


“Serradura is like our local refrigerator cake,” says Jardin. “You can use any biscuits or cookies like chocolate chip cookies, Oreo, Marie, otap, galletas de patatas, etc. For the bars like brownies and food for the gods, you need to dry them up first or toast them in the oven for easy crushing.”

ARRANGE shot glass in a serving tray. Pour each glass with½ tsp of crushed biscuits.

To whip the cream, either use an electric mixer (5-10 minutes) or a hand mixer (15-20 minutes). You can top the desserts with any fruits, such as leftover fruit cocktail (drained), apples, kiat-kiat and strawberry.

Use a nice shot glass or martini glass for this sweet delight.

Makes 8-12 servings.


0.5 l all-purpose cream

¼ c Magnolia Pure Fresh Milk

RICH and creamy Serradura

1 can condensed milk


1 c leftover biscuits or cookies

Mint leaves for garnish or leftover fruits
