Cream Cheese and Pudding Pie
When I read the recipe ( www.supermama.lt/forumas) of this pie I was really surprised to see pudding powder as an ingredient and a very different way of making crust. So I made the pie just for mere curiosity and because I had a pack of Dr. Oetker rasin and apple flavoured gourmet pudding for more that half a year and had never any interest in using it. But the but turned out ABSOLUTELY delicious and really worth making!!! I'll definitely make it again, however, I'll try a different type of pudding... e.g. strawberry pudding or even chocolate... ehh... dreaming too much again... :D
What we need:
300gr of flour
200gr of unsalted butter
1 teaspoon of salt and sugar
1 table spoon of milk or cream
400gr of cream cheese ( tr. krem peynir)
1 pack of pudding ( originally it was vanilla pudding but I used rasin and apple pudding)
200gr of sugar ( I think it was a bit too much, next time I'll use a bit less, but it's a matter of taste!)
2 table spoons of plain yoghurt or sour cream
What we have to do:
1. Melt butter and when it cools a bit mix it with flour, salt, sugar, milk. Knead until it forms a lump. Take one third of crust and wrap into foil and place it in a freezer. The other piece place into a fridge for 20 min.
2. Take cream cheese, 2 eggs, sugar, a pack of pudding and mix it carefully.
3. Take out the pie crust out of a fridge and roll out a pad for a pie. Add the filling. Then take the remaining crust out of a freezer, grate it and sprinkle it over the cream cheese and pudding filling.
4. Bake it for 50 min in 180C oven. Enjoy!!!
