So simple to make but tastes so...good!

Top Review by James Cook

I made this tonight on a whim--sooooooo good. When I "sampled" the filling as I was cooking, it was so good I went and gave a spoonful to everyone else in the house at the time. Absolutely divine, and relatively easy. I'm in the US, so if anyone's curious, it's a 350 degree oven and about 1 1/4 cups of heavy cream. Also, my pudding mixes were about 96 g, but I just tossed two in anyways, no problem. The two tablespoons of boiling water wasn't enough for me, so I added another two, but then that was too much, so I added a heaping tablespoon of powdered sugar again, and finally managed to get it right. Only thing we discussed changing after eating it was not putting the second sheet of puff pastry flat side up--we thought it might look prettier with the puffed side face up. But honestly, when it tastes as good as this did, it doesn't matter one bit!
