I used skim milk with this recipe and let the pudding sit overnight-the filling was nice and firm the next day when I added the fruit. Very refreshing for a hot day and not too sweet-highly recommended.
I made this the day before I took it to a dinner party. The crust was soggy from the pudding. I also didn't like the cooked pudding. (I'm used to instant.) I would only go with either blueberries or raspberries, not both. There wasn't much room with the other fruits so might as well not have to buy both to only put a few pieces on. 1 c of peaches was 1 peach. 1 c kiwi slices was 2 kiwis. There is nothing wrong with this recipe, just not my preference. I was really excited about making it and both my friends and I were disappointed with it.
I was a little skeptical of this recipe when I read the previous reviews, but I have to say I don't know what the negative comments were about!! I made this as a dessert for my fiance on Valentine's Day, and both he and I LOVED it! The vanilla pudding had a subtle sweetness but didn't overpower with its flavor. You have to let the pudding sit for five minutes before pouring it into the pie crust -- that way the crust won't get soggy. I used a graham cracker crust, brushed it with egg whites and baked for 5 minutes at 350 degrees -- made the crust shiny and stronger. I found that four hours was the perfect time to let the pudding chill in the crust in the fridge. SO GOOD! Thank you!
We thought this would be OK ... but it's amazing! We used the same fruits as in the recipe (except no raspberries), with a graham cracker crust and pre-made pudding cups, and apricot jam for the glaze. Buying pre-made crust and pudding saved lots of time, and cutting the fruit really didn't take long at all. This is the PERFECT summertime or cookout dessert - so light tasting, and sweet enough without being overpowering. TRY THIS RECIPE!
Updated to add: Be sure to only make what you'll eat right away, though, because it does NOT last in the fridge; the glaze puddles on top of the pudding, which is not very attractive.
I made this for Easter. It was soo good! But I made a few changes I used instant pudding ( whats the differance? ) I used a traditional tart crust and Strawberrys and Bannanas . Plus with whipped cream!
These fruity tarts were big hit at our last school luncheon. We used VIP brand mini pie shells and the melted jam over brushed over the top made them look too pretty to eat, well almost. Great submission, and super easy make ahead dessert.
excellent. i used mangos instead of peaches
Excellent dessert! Be careful of amount of milk
for size pudding. My package was 3 oz. so I only needed 2 C milk.
