Makes 6 desserts for April Fools' Day

  • 1 pkg. (15 oz.) refrigerated pie crusts
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 2 boxes (3.4 oz. ea.) vanilla or white chocolate instant pudding
  • Milk to prepare pudding
  • 6 yellow and 12 orange Starburst® candies
  • 6 green Skittles® candies
  • 1 banana

You will also need
6 Aluminum foil pot pie tin, 4 1/2" or Two 6" pie tins
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

  2. Unroll piecrust on your work area. Using the upside-down potpie tin as a guide, cut a circle of dough about . inch larger that the tin. Reroll scraps as needed. You will cut 3 circles from each crust.

  3. Crumple a piece of foil into a 1. in. ball and set into the potpie tin. Cover it with a layer of foil to create a smooth mound. Repeat with remaining tins.

  4. Lay a circle of crust atop each mound. Use the tines of a fork around the edge of the pie dough to crimp it. Gently poke a few holes in the crust.

  5. Whisk together the egg and the water to make an egg wash. Gently brush over each crust.

  6. Set the pie tins on a baking sheet and bake the crust for about 10 minutes. Let cool completely.

  7. Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Prepare the pudding according to the package directions and refrigerate until time to assemble.

  8. Time to create the faux chicken and vegetables. To make the Starburst candies easier to work with, place them unwrapped on a paper plate and warm in the microwave just until they're slightly softened, about 12-15 seconds. (Once the candies are shaped, lay them on waxed paper, setting them apart from each other so they don't stick together.

    Chicken: Peel the banana, dice into 1/4 in. pieces, and cut into small cubes.
    Corn: Roll each yellow candy into 4 in. rope. Cut into . in. pieces and flatten one end to resemble corn.
    Peas: Green skittles with "s" logo down
    Carrots: Cut each orange candy into 4 squares.

  9. To assemble: Spoon about 2/3 cup of the pudding into each cooled pie tin. Add the candies/fruit to the pudding. Top with a pie crust.
