     Stir together first set of ingredients til well incorporated, chill for one hour in fridge.  Divide dough into 12~1oz portions of dough.  Using a flower shaped cookie cutter, press an ounce of dough inside cutter to shape into flower.  Gently remove cutter. lift dough and center the dough on a greased cupcake tin, delicately place dough in cupcake cavity while bringing the "petals" up and over the rim to form the flower.  (dough may not go all the way to the bottom).  Repeat with remaining dough, if petals are too close together, you may need to use every other slot and bake in two batches.  Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes, remove and cool.  Meanwhile, add Pudding mixture and Almond Milk to bowl and beat with beaters til thoroughly blended, set in fridge to thicken.  When Flower shells have cooled, remove from pan, pour Confectioners Erythritol on small plate and dip the petal, dusting will leave a white film.  Add Pudding to cavity, top with a Blueberry, and garnish with Sprinkles if desired.  Store in fridge, Enjoy  :)
