Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed according to package directions

  • 1 pkg. (about 3.5 ounces) chocolate instant pudding and pie filling mix

  • 1 cup milk

  • 1 1/4 cups marshmallow creme

  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

  • Confectioners' sugar

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 400°F.

  2. Unfold the pastry on a lightly floured surface. Cut the pastry into 3 strips along the fold marks. Cut each strip into 6 rectangles, making 18 rectangles in all. Place the pastries 1 inch apart on 2 baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes or until they're golden brown. Remove the pastries from the baking sheets and cool them on wire racks.

  3. Prepare the pudding according to the package directions using 1 cup milk.

  4. Split the pastries into 2 layers, making 36 layers in all. Spread the marshmallow creme on 18 bottom layers. Sprinkle with the walnuts. Top with the pudding and the top layers. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar, if desired. Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to 1 hour.

Tip

If you want a flaky thin and crispy pastry that’s not very puffy, prick the unbaked Puff Pastry all over with a fork, which lets steam escape while baking.

When using an egg wash, be sure it doesn’t run down the cut sides of the pastry, as that will make edges stick together and stop the pastry from rising.

If bubbles appear on the surface while baking Puff Pastry, prick with a fork to deflate them.

Remove only as many pastry sheets as you need. Wrap unused sheets in plastic wrap or foil and return to the freezer.
