What can replace the cream?
If you need cream for decorating the pastry, then you can do it with the help of custard. A little harder is the situation with cream in sauces. The fact is that most sauces are heat-treatable, and some dairy products quickly coagulate at high temperatures. Therefore, you need to carefully select the product that you need to replace the cream. Sour cream can curl at high temperatures and give a very sour taste. Milk fits better because it rolls up only with a long boil. It is enough just to not allow it to boil, and the consistency of milk is no different from cream - it is just less fat. Kefir can also be put in a sauce instead of cream. He, unlike the other dairy products listed above, almost does not fold, but gives a slightly sour taste.
