  • Whip the 2-1/2 cups of whipping cream with the confectioners sugar and vanilla (add more confectioners sugar than 4 tablespoons for a sweeter taste if desired).
  • Spread the whipped cream over the pudding in the pan.
  • Arrange remaining crackers on top of the whipped cream.
  • For the topping: in a bowl, mix the 2-1/2 cups confectioners sugar with the whipping cream or half and half (start with 5 tablespoons adding more to make a smooth spreadable glaze.
