You'll love this homemade puff pastry crust topped with a soft-set pudding layer that has a hint of strawberry flavor. This dessert needs to chill for at least an hour, so it's a fabulous make-ahead dish. —Candace Richter, Stevens Point, Wisconsin

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 5 tablespoons seedless strawberry jam
  • 3 cups cold whole milk
  • 1 package (5.1 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 3 cups quartered fresh strawberries


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large saucepan, bring water and butter to a rolling boil. Add flour all at once and beat until blended. Cook over medium heat, stirring vigorously until mixture pulls away from sides of pan and forms a ball. Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes.
  2. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Continue beating until mixture is smooth and shiny.
  3. Spread into a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake 20-25 minutes or until puffed and golden brown (surface will be uneven). Cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
  4. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and jam until smooth. Beat in milk and pudding mix until smooth. In a small bowl, beat cream until stiff peaks form; fold into pudding mixture. Spread over crust. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.
  5. Just before serving, top with strawberries.
