Kids: Make Mom a treat that's easy as pie!
Have an adult (Dad) prepare the pudding and let the kids assemble the tarts, the best part is surprising Mom with a homemade treat she'll love to celebrate Mother's Day.
2 packages mini phyllo shells
1 package Durkee Lemon Flavor Pie Filling (I chose Durkee because it calls for only one egg and contains no additives).
1 can Cabot natural whipped cream
1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
2. Lightly beat together 1 egg and 2 1/2 cups spring water, add to a medium sauce pan. Combine with filling mix and 3 tablespoons of sugar, stirring until smooth. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until pudding comes to a boil, approximately 2 minutes.
3. Remove from heat, pudding will thicken while cooling. Line a baking sheet with wax paper and place shells on it. Using a scoop, fill each shell with 1 tablespoon of pudding; then chill.
4. Before serving, transfer tarts to a pretty dish, give each a tiny squirt of whipped cream; serve.
