Any suggestions?
 
I am trying to find a recipe for our Easter dinner that contains specific
ingredients, because my silly mother comes up with a new "food theme" for
every single occasion.

I would like to use the following ingredients:
Chocolate pudding (not instant)
Cream Cheese
Pie Crust (single crust)
It doesn't matter how many more ingredients or the level of difficulty of
the recipe!
Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
Kathryn

Why don't you ask her to BRING her new whatever and you concentrate on
the main course.

For using those three ingredients you might try the "shell" portion of
a recipe I made from a Southern Cooking magazine recently, and just
bake the shells to fill with the prepared pudding only at serving time.
What I did make went over very well and were called Lemon Chess
Tassies. The shell dough makes exactly 4 dozen, which was two
mini-muffin pans for me.
Shell Ingredients:
1 cup butter, softened
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
Beat butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer until creamy.
Beating at low speed, gradually add all of the flour. Shape mixture
into 48 balls; cover and chill 1 hour. (I quartered the dough, made
four long rolls of it, then cut each roll into a dozen even bits to
roll into balls and refrigerate with waxed paper between each one dozen
layer.)
Place one dough ball into each lightly greased cup of mini-muffin tins,
shaping each into an even thickness shell that goes all the way up the
cup.
Bake at 350F degrees for up to 25 minutes or until light-medium
browned. Cool in mini-pan; gently slide each shell up (using a
toothpick?) to be able to place each onto a wire rack to completely
cool before storing in a closed container until serving time. Spoon
your pudding into each shell at serving time.

This shell crust comes out so flakey and is quite yummy. I don't know,
but I would think the pudding may cause the shell to become too moist
if these were filled to then refrigerate, else I'd certainly rather
complete them hours ahead of serving time.

That would defeat her purpose, and she ALWAYS prepares the main course.
She likes to give each of us 3 ingredients to work with, and each person
will have a different list, and then we see how each recipe comes together
to fit her theme and see what each family has came up with. I suppose it's
her way of making us be creative in our cooking, and have a little fun, and
she doesn't have to cook everything too!
Like I said..... she's silly. And we like to humor her too!

.....and what "theme" would those ingredients be?
Sounds like the makings for any number of no bake type pies one sees
advertised in jello ads. Have you looked at the Jello website?

Great idea!
I make Pecan Tassies with the exact dough recipe. It is a fabulous shell!
For the filling you just mix chopped pecans, dark brown sugar, and melted
butter, then fill them up full. After they have cooled you dust them with
powdered sugar. Yummy!!!
Thanks for your thoughts!

What a gas! Sounds like fun. What's the Theme Of The Day -- besides
the Resurrection of Christ? "-)
