#6 - ADJUSTING PUDDING AND CREAM PIE FILLING RECIPES

Puddings and cream pie fillings thickened with cornstarch have special problems at high altitudes. Above 5,000 feet, temperatures reached in the top of a double boiler are not high enough for the maximum thickening of starch. Use direct heat rather than a double boiler to achieve better results.

Also, when making puddings and cream pie fillings, be careful not to over-cook these products. Over-cooking may cause the starch mixture to break down and become watery.
