Keeping Pie Filling from Being Runny

Here's how to keep your pie filling from being runny: Add a box of instant pudding, regular or sugar free. It's the same principle as using cornstarch but pudding adds some extra flavor; it doesn't 'bland' down the taste.


These are some of my favorite combinations: Lemon with any fruit, including pumpkin and sweet potato. Butterscotch is also good with pumpkin or sweet potato. Vanilla with coconut custard. White chocolate with banana cream.
