Followed instructions exactly and it came out lovely. Very thick and smooth. I was leery when I realised how lemony this was, making it to go with Vegan Pumpkin Tart With Pecan Crust. But it was an awesome match! This would be great with just about anything (my mom's dreaming of blueberry muffins already). Thanks, Seebee and Chef Bennet!

Very good, very tasty, very easy to make, i bake my pastry cream on the microwave, like i do for regular french pastry cream. We tasted it tonight, for desert, with some cookies, and it was very good. Thank you and Beverly lynn Bennett ! I used almond milk.
