I'm not sure how to use them without baking with them.
Is there anyway i can make a raw dessert using them in my convection oven?
If anyone has used these please help me out.

what are they? I've never heard of them.
you could "grease" them with coconut oil. Then press a nut crust into each one. Refrigerate them until firm. They should pop out and you could fill them with fruit, a pudding, etc.
Just an idea.

They are small round bowls about 3 inches. in diamater, flat bottom and about 2 inches high.The size can vary but they are always small. I am sure you have seen them. They are usually used for custards.
You can still use them for puddings, as a mold, or something as simple as portion control.
Hope this was of some help to you...........

I put the filling (without the crust) for Alissa's blueberry pie in one. The filling sets and you'll have a dessert that can be topped with fruit. With a bit of gentle persuation from a knife it will probably plop out in one piece which is even nicer for presentation.
Pate. Mock salmon pate or the recipe for sausage (without being dehydrated) look pretty in ramekins . I like the look of a plate with a ramekin on it instaed of everything plopped in heaps.
Individual portions of salads - kale salad or RFRW Quinoa and grape salad. They need to be dense salads rather than leafy ones. Oooh! Individual lasagne portions. They could be built in reverse, built up high and turned out onto a plate.
Going away now to experiment with ramekins. Such a lovely word too. :)
