Rather an odd recipe but it is very good. It is pudding with flecks of white fluff that kind of look like bits of marshmallow. You can serve it as a pudding in glass dishes or pile it into a baked pie shell. The recipe makes enough to fill a nine inch pie shell.
My great aunt gave the recipe to Mom in the 1940s and it is possible that it is known by other names. A search of the internet turned up nothing that resembled this recipe.
- 1 package of pudding mix, the kind that needs to be cooked
- 2 ½ cups cold milk
- 1 egg, separated
- 1 envelope of unflavored gelatin
- ¼ cup of milk
Separate the egg. Put the egg white into a mixing bowl.
Add 2 ½ cups of milk to the pudding mix in a sauce pan and add the egg yolk to the mixture. Blend well. Cook as directed on the pudding package.
Add ¼ cup milk to the gelatin in a small bowl. Let stand 5 minutes. Add to the pudding mixture and mix well. Cool slightly.
Beat the egg white until stiff. Fold into the pudding.
Use as pudding or as a no bake pie filling.
The hand written recipe wasn’t very clear. I rewrote it from what I remembered.
I have used a cooked cornstarch pudding recipe instead of a packaged pudding mix and it worked well.
In my opinion chocolate, butterscotch and vanilla flavors are the best.
Use either a graham cracker crust or a standard pastry pie crust.
