  • 1 pkg sheet frozen puff pastry thawed
  • 1 pkg small package 4-serving size instant vanilla pudding
  • 2 cups half-and-half cream see NOTES
  • 1/4 cup caramel sauce see NOTES
  • Sanding sugar optional


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet or cookie sheet with parchment.
  • Unroll the puff pastry and place it on the prepared sheet.
  • If using the sanding sugar, slightly dampen the top of the pastry sheet and sprinkle on the desired amount of sugar. Lightly press the sugar into the sheet.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until pastry is puffed up and golden. While the pastry is baking, make up the filling--Prepare the pudding by adding the half and half and pudding mix in a medium bowl and whisking for 2 minutes. Place in the refrigerator until the pudding is soft but set; about 15 minutes
  • Leave the pastry on the sheet to cool.
  • Once cool, cut the sheet in half through the center so you have a top and bottom.
  • Spread the pudding over the bottom sheet then place the other sheet on top.
  • Drizzle with caramel sauce.


The filling needs to be rich, hence the cream. If you wish to make it with milk use only whole milk and reduce the amount of milk to 1 3/4 cups
Any ice cream sauce can be substituted for the caramel.
