Creamy Peach Pudding

Instant pudding hurries along preparation of this fruity pudding from Tori Krick of Tilden, Nebraska. "It's a great dish to take to wedding showers or graduation parties," she says. TIP: "I like to make it ahead of time and chill it for several hours before serving," Tori explains.

    I liked the interesting texture the orzo gave this dish. It kind of reminded me of rice pudding. The recipe should tell us to give it a gentle stir befor serving because the peaches tend to sink during chilling.

    Forgot to mention also, that Reiman changed the directions for this from my original sent in. I chop the peaches very finely. This evenly distributes the peach flavor better. I don't know why they suggested leaving them as peach slices. Too big for a decent scoopable dessert.

    This is actually my recipe that I submitted. I have gone to using cheesecake pudding in place of the vanilla sometimes for a different flavor.

    This was good but not the taste I expected. The flavor of the peaches did not come thru. The vanilla pudding over powered it. If I make it again I will use my own frozen peaches and make a thick sauce with the peach juice that will replace the vanilla pudding. Hopefully the peach flavor will be there.
