Vanilla Pudding and Pie Filling Mix

>> Thursday, June 30, 2011

This is from the Make a Mix cookbook.  It makes a velvety white pudding that is elegant for desserts.  Easy peasy too!  The mix will sit on your shelf for 4 months if you keep it tightly covered. 

Vanilla Pudding and Pie Filling Mix
2 1/3 c. sugar
1 3/4 c. cornstarch
3/4 tsp. salt

In a large bowl, mix all ingredient with a wire whisk until blended.  Store in a 4 cup container with a tight-fitting lid.

To make pudding:
2/3 c. pudding mix
2 1/2 c. milk
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

Combine pudding mix and milk in a small saucepan.  Heat over medium heat, stirring until mixture thickens and begins to bubble.  Remove from heat.  Stir in butter and vanilla until blended.  Cover with plastic wrap, cool.
To use for a pie filling: Pour into baked crust and refrigerate for 2 hours or until set.

 Notes: The photo shows warm pudding poured over pound cake and topped with strawberries.

Looks like a great pudding! And it looks delish with cake and berries.

Oh how I love being able to keep mixes on the shelf...and cooked pudding is always the best. Found you at This Week's Cravings - thanks for sharing.

I never thought of making a pudding mix. Great idea.
