oops I've run out of creme fraiche. Do you think I can substitute yoghurt?

Recipe requires 3 tbs to me mixed in with pie filling. What do you think?

I have done before. I do it as late in the process as possible.

As long as it's not a strawberry yoghurt wink

creme frache same as sour cream isn't it? Which is a pointless peice of information I know grin
bung it in and see what happens...

Problem will be that it might curdle and split when it gets hot. Creme fraiche doesn't but yogurt much more likely to.

hmm, I would do it if it was a 'stir in at the end' type as yog sometimes separates during cooking

will still taste good even if separated though

yoghurt may split if it get too hot...i think you can stir in a little cornflour to combat this

but i'd give it a whirl either way.

Well it's to go in a pie, so I can't stir it in at the end. Perhaps I should leave it out? NB - the pie is a sausage meat pie... I suppose it will look like a pork pie...i.e. no runny sauce. Perhaps that would disguise any splitting?

I mix 50:50 double cream and yoghurt and made a very nice creme fraiche.

SpawnChorus Wed 19-Aug-09 15:49:36

taxilady - yes, I had considered cornflour...think I'll give that a go.

TaxiLady Wed 19-Aug-09 15:54:57

CybilLiberty Wed 19-Aug-09 15:55:47

TaxiLady Wed 19-Aug-09 15:57:06

TaxiLady Wed 19-Aug-09 15:58:43
