Napoleon Cremes

For the annual Christmas open house we host, I set out a buffet with lots of food and candies like these lovely layered treats. They're so creamy, and with a green pistachio layer of pudding peeking out, they're very merry. —Gloria Jesswein, Niles, Michigan

    These squares are rich & delicious, so you can cut them small. I also have only used vanilla pudding mix. A friend recently asked me for these, but couldn't recall the name & I hadn't made them in years. I was so happy they were right here on TOH...of course!
