  1. Just like a reviewer before me, I too have used this exact recipe for years and EVERYONE raves about it each time as it disappears very fast! Most people think it seems to hard to make, its not!
  2. I have been making this for years - it always comes out perfect and everyone loves it
  3. I was just adding this recipe, and I realized it was already posted. It is the best! I often use heavy cream or half and half instead of the milk. I also do not add the layers until just before serving. Thanks for posting.
  4. I made this to take for a friend's 40th birthday party. If you are taking this somewhere that there will be more than 10 guests be sure to make two. This dessert was gone so fast and people lucky enough to get some went on and on about it so much that people who didn't even try it wanted the recipe. I used a decorating bag to pipe the Cool Whip over the pudding layer with a large star tip. Great recipe.
  5. This was really great. Looked and tasted like it took alot of effort but it really didn't at all. I love cream puffs and this was more like a cream puff cake to me. I will be making this again for sure. I used 1% milk, low fat cream cheese and lite cool whip and it came out just as good as if i were to use full fat products.
