Vanilla Pudding Pie With Raspberry, Kiwi & Mango Flower Petals
When it comes to dessert, everyone's all about the cake, cupcakes, and cookies. But what about the delicious pies and puddings? Now it's finally their time to shine with this delicious vanilla pudding pie with pretty floral cutouts filled with fresh raspberries, kiwis, and mango.
For the pie base:
- 10 oz oatmeal cookies
- 5 oz melted butter
For the vanilla pudding:
- 4 oz sugar
- 6 egg yolks
- 24 fl oz milk
- 1 tbsp butter
- contents of 1 vanilla pod
- 2 tsp corn starch
- 10 sheets of gelatin
- 6x 16.9 fl oz bottles with grooved bottoms (e.g. Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Sprite, Lipton Iced Tea, Minute Maid, etc.)
For the flower petals:
- 1 handful of raspberries
- 3–4 kiwis
- 1 mango
- mint leaves to garnish
1. Crumble the oatmeal cookies, mix the crumbs with melted butter, and firmly press the mixture into the bottom of a greased 9-inch springform pan.
2. Cut off the bottom 2 inches of the plastic bottles and poke a hole in the middle so that you can easily pull them out of the pudding later.
3. Soak the gelatin sheets in water. Meanwhile, add the sugar, egg yolks, milk, butter, vanilla pod contents, and corn starch to a pot over low heat and stir constantly until a smooth cream forms. Add the soaked gelatin and stir until dissolved.
4. Pour the vanilla pudding into the springform pan, about 1 inch high, and let cool. Then grease the bottle pieces and gently push the tops into the pudding.
5. Pour the remaining vanilla pudding in the pan and refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
6. Once the pudding has set, carefully remove the bottle pieces.
7. Peel the kiwis and mango and cut into small pieces. Set some raspberries, kiwi pieces, and mango pieces aside for decoration. Puree the remaining fruit separately and fill two of the flower cavities with kiwi puree, two with mango puree, and two with raspberry puree.
8. Garnish the floral vanilla pudding pie with mint leaves and the remaining fruit before serving.
Looks beautiful, tastes great, and is super easy to prepare — what more could you possibly want in a dessert?
