Could you make a tart with a custard or pudding filling in it? I so want to try this but I'm afraid it won't work...plus I haven't got any recipes! (I've searched online, too) so please help? Or give me a good recipe for custard or pudding? Which one would be best for a tart? Thanks so much! xo
Yes, custard pies are classic American desserts. Eggy, flavored with a hint of nutmeg, it is a classic. Here's one recipe:
Yes, you can put any pudding you like in a crust. Chocolate pie is essentially a pudding pie. Coconut cream pie, banana cream pie, pumpkin pie, sweet potato pie are all examples of classic pudding/custard pies. Here's a link to the custard and cream pie collection on Allrecipes, or just do a google search of your own:
There must be thousands of custard pie recipes online. Use a graham cracker (or other crumb) crust, or a par-baked pastry crust. If your pudding is cooked, you can use a fully baked crust since all you need is to put the warm pudding into it and chill it. If you are cooking custard in the tart shell, par-bake the shell. This is the same procedure as for quiche.
A custard is different from a pudding, even though they are similar.
An easy one to try (I don't know what sort of baking skills you have) would be to make a graham cracker crust, make some cooked Jell-O pudding, pour it into the crust, chill, then top with (real) whipped cream.
For more involved recipes, you'll have to be more specific about what you are looking for. You could do anything from a pastry cream-filled sweet crust topped with fresh berries and glaze to a sugar cream pie to a banana cream or coconut cream pie to a chocolate mousse pie....there are lots of possibilities.
