How to make it

  • Baking:
  • Roll out the dough into two sheets of same length and width.
  • Place in a baking dish. Do not grease the baking dish. Using a fork, make holes to ensure that the dough will rise evenly while baking. First bake at 480F; once the dough turns slightly yellow, lower the heat to 390F and finally to 300F.
  • Puff pastry sheets should be golden brown when done.
  • Filling:
  • COOL WHIP whipped topping or whipped cream
  • Vanilla Pudding Filling
  • 2 - 1/2 cup milk
  • 5 - oz granulated sugar
  • 2 - vanilla instant pudding mixes
  • 2 - large eggs
  • vanilla sugar
  • 1 - Tbsp rum
  • 9 -1/2 oz softened unsalted butter
  • Making the Filling:
  • Combine 1½ cup milk with 5 oz sugar in a sauce pan.
  • Cook until the mixture starts boiling. Pour the rest of the milk in a bowl, then whisk in pudding mixes and eggs.
  • Pour the pudding mixture in the boiling milk, stirring constantly. When pudding thickens, take it off the heat and chill the pot in cold water. Stir frequently to prevent “skin” from forming.
  • Mix in vanilla and rum.
  • Chill well.
  • Whisk butter until it gets fluffy. Spoon it into the pudding while stirring constantly.
  • Assembling the Whole Thing:
  • Keep one pastry sheet in the baking dish. Using a spatula, layer the filling evenly on the pastry sheet.
  • The filling should be around 1 inch high.
  • Top it with Cool Whip or whipped cream.
  • Spread evenly.
  • Carefully place the second pastry sheet on top. Use a big, sharp knife to cut puff pastry.
  • Start on one end of the baking dish and work your way to the other. Hold the knife just above the top pastry sheet. While barely touching the pastry sheet, tap on the knife blade with a very fast movement. Cut 2 inch cubes.
  • Dust with confectionary sugar and serve.

    I made this for a party two days ago! Tweaked to 8 oz of butter instead of 9 and used prepared puff pastry. The filling was wonderful! I also chose to use real whipped cream instead of cool whip. I pre cut my tops before baking so that I can cut it easier.

    You don't know how happy you made me posting these! They are the best, most delicious things ever and my hubby's fave dessert! I could make a whole batch of these babies and he would finish them all by himself. Time consuming, maybe - satisfaction 1000000!
