"A Cream Cracker under the Settee" is played out as a monologue by Doris ( Thora Hird ), a seventy-five-year-old woman who is a widow, following her slip off a pouffe (pronounced 'buffet' in the play). Her disapproval of home-helper Zulema's cleaning leads her to attempt to clean a picture of her and Wilfred, her late husband, and subsequently her fall. Her position, now suffering from a "numby" leg, gives her natural desire to find help. Thus she moves from her position on a chair, to the floor near where she fell, and finally to the front door of her house. An exhausted Doris drags herself back to the living room after failing to get help from the front door. Eventually she hears the voice of a policeman, asking if she is all right because - unusually - her lights are off. Instead of asking for his help she lets him leave after telling him she was napping. It is assumed by the situation, and by the fact that the conclusions to Bennett's plays are typically bleak, that Doris later dies. Throughout the monologue she discusses past issues and events in her life, characters and situations. Use of juxtaposition of humour and sadness is used frequently by Alan Bennett , as it is in many of the Talking Heads monologues to great effect. Such effects include the interaction of passing time. The televised monologue gives the impression of a dark evening as the end of her life is suggested; the passing of time reflecting the passing of her life. Furthermore, the moving from the relatively comfy position of her chair - where she is sitting at the start - possibly indicates the movement from a secure and comfy position in life to her current situation. Issues such as treatment of the aged, growing old and life choices are constantly discussed throughout the monologue.
A while afterwards, Cream came to Blaze's aid with Sonic, Knuckles, Amy and Tails when Eggman and Eggman Nega drained all her Sol Emeralds of their power to conquer both dimensions. There, Cream and her friends gave Blaze their moral support, allowing Blaze to recharge the Sol Emeralds and become Burning Blaze . After Super Sonic and Burning Blaze had defeated the doctors and saved both dimensions, Cream was crying over that Blaze had left to go home to her world. However, she became much happier upon learning from Sonic that Blaze promised to see them again.
I am not a big pudding kinda gal so I made this as directed but instead of the pudding I used a slightly sweetened cream cheese mixture (minus the eggs so it didn’t have to bake) and finished it off with cool whip and caramel drizzle. It was divine !!! And kept for several days without becoming soupy. I am a big cream cheese fan so a lot of my pies are subsisted with cream cheese. I tried it with a small splash of banana flavoring. It it made it taste artificial. It’s best to sweeten the cream cheese with powdered sugar so it’s not gritty or marshmallow cream. Just a different twist some might enjoy. Happy holidays.
