Q&A: When pie filling says it serves 8 will this be enough to fill 10 mini cookie cups?

Question by unlisted: When pie filling says it serves 8 will this be enough to fill 10 mini cookie cups?
I am going to be making this recipe http://www.food.com/recipe/lemon-cookie-tarts-215530 for mini tarts. Some will be lemon others will be a ganache filling.

I have a box of jello cook and serve lemon flavor, I only plan to fill 10 of the mini cookie cups with the recipe for lemon pie filling which is on the back of the box, this filing would normally go in a 9 inch pan to make 8 servings. The box of jello is 2.9 oz. The recipe for the filling is as follows:
Stir pudding mix, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup water and 2 beaten egg yolks in medium saucepan. Stir in 2 cups water. Stirring constantly with wire whisk, cook on medium heat until mixture comes to a full boil on medium heat. Cool 5 minutes stirring twice. Serve warm or chilled.

Will this filling be enough to fill the 10 mini cookie cups, if there is leftover filling how much will be left over, can I freeze it and for how long? Or how long will it stay in the fridge for?

Thank you :)

Your cookie tart recipe will make 30 cookie tarts but only calls for 1/2 cup of lemon curd, which really doesn’t sound like enough to me for all 30 tarts. However, your lemon curd Jello pudding recipe should make about 2 cups of lemon curd. That 1/2 cup of lemon curd in the actual recipe should certainly fill 10 tarts. Cool the curd to about room temperature, before filling your cookie tarts.

The Jello lemon curd will serve 8 when used as a filling for a 9 inch pie crust, meaning that you should get 8 slices from the pie. You cannot freeze the curd and should have about 1 1/2 cups leftover if you only plan to fill 10 cookie tarts with it. Just put the lemon curd into dessert dishes and serve it with whipped cream. You can also cut a store bought pound cake loaf in half the long way and use the leftover curd as filling. Wrap the cake well in aluminim foil and store in the fridge for 3-4 days.

Iced Lemon Cookies

4 cups sugar
1/2 cup lemon zest, about 6 to 8 lemons
4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
2 cups (4 sticks) unsalted butter, cut into 1-inch cubes, chilled
5 egg yolks
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 cup lemon juice
Lemon Icing, recipe follows

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a food processor work bowl, add sugar and lemon zest. Process until sugar and zest are well mixed, about 20 seconds. Scrape into a large mixing bowl. Reserve about 1/2 cup of lemon sugar in a separate bowl for later use.

Add flour, baking powder and salt into food processor and pulse briefly to mix. Add cold butter into food processor with flour mixture and process with short pulses until mixture resembles cornmeal and no large lumps of butter remain, about 10 pulses. Pour this mixture into the sugar and lemon mixture in the large mixing bowl and set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix egg yolks, vanilla extract and lemon juice together.

Using an electric mixer with a paddle attachment, pour in the lemon/sugar and flour/butter mixture and stir until combined, about 15 seconds. Then, while the mixer is still running, slowly add egg/lemon juice mixture and mix until well combined and dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl, about 15 to 30 seconds.

Scrape the dough into a large bowl and refrigerate until cold, but not solid, about 30 minutes. Use an ice cream scoop to scoop the dough onto parchment-lined cookie sheets. Take the dough balls and roll the tops into the reserved lemon sugar. Use the bottom of a water glass to press the cookies flat, about 1/4-inch thick. Bake the cookies until slightly browned, about 15 minutes. Remove the parchment paper with the cookies from the tray to a cooling rack and cool completely, about 1 hour. Once the cookies have completely cooled, ice with Lemon Icing.

Lemon Icing:
1 pound (2 cups) confectioners’ sugar
6 tablespoons lemon juice
In a medium bowl, whisk sugar and lemon juice together until smooth. Spoon onto cooled cookies, and spread evenly with the back of a spoon. Let stand on a cooling rack until the glaze is set, about 1 hour.

Yield: enough for 3 dozen cookies
