Following is a recipe for our favorite, easy, all-purpose pastry cream.
1 small box (about 3/4 ounces) vanilla instant pudding mix
1 cup cold milk
1 cup heavy cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3.4 ounces vanilla instant pudding mix
8 ounces cold milk
8 ounces heavy
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Rather than provide a recipe, here are some building-block ideas. Mix and match as you please to create what sounds best to you.

*Key lime: graham cracker crumbs and lime-flavored pudding or mousse.

*Harvest: gingerbread cookie crumbs and pumpkin mousse.

*Strawberries and cream: Vanilla shortbread crumbs with a lemon curd/whipped cream mixture.

*Black Forest: brownie crumbles with cherry pie filling, vanilla pudding, whipped cream, and chocolate shavings.

*Tropical: White cake cubes with pastry cream, sliced banana, and toasted coconut.

Prepare the instant pudding according to the package directions, using milk and cream instead of just milk.

Stir in the vanilla.

Refrigerate until ready to use.
