Easy and economical to make for use to make your own pies and tarts. Times given are when using a food processor, if doing by hand add another 5 minutes. Don't include chill time. If you have hot hands would advise using a food processor. You end up with enough for 2 tart cases (9") or for the top and bottom of a 9" pie. If using for a sweet dish add 2 teaspoons sugar after you rub in butter. Use as is for savoury dishes.
I have edited this to 8 serves for if used as 2 bottoms or a top and bottom it would equate to 8 serves, giving a truer nutritional panel. Still does not include sugar for sweet pastry. Please note referring to a 250ml metric cup for USA cups + 2 tablespoons.
If you like the chocolate chip cookies with the pudding in them (recipe #69521) you should try these too. They are the best oatmeal cookies I have ever had. So soft and yummy! I usually use butterscotch pudding. If I use the vanilla pudding, I put butterscotch chips in them instead of raisins.
I have tried other recipes and had my souffle fall. This one worked perfectly, I actually went and got one of my dinner party guests as soon as I took them out of the oven and said "holy cow it actually worked". They rose beautifully. So much for the berry coulis I had planned to put in the sunken middle :)
I got this from Cooks Illustrated and wanted to share because it worked so well.
Adjust the amount of sugar based on the berries you are using and what you want the finished product to be served with. I listed the amount I use, but I prefer it on the not too sweet side. Fresh berries would also work, but I would decrease the sugar further.
These cookies melt in your mouth. The pudding makes the texture so smooth and delicious. It's funny, these cookies were originally suppossed to be made with vanilla pudding, but I made a mistake and put in chocolate pudding and they were wonderful! If you're in the mood for chocolate then makes sure to use chocolate pudding instead of vanilla!
