  • large baking sheet
  • Stand Mixer
  • Piping Bag


  • 17.3 ounces Puff Pastry dough I used Pepperidge Farms frozen puff pastry dough
  • 3.4 ounces instant lemon pudding
  • 2 cups whole milk (for instant pudding)
  • 12 ounces fresh raspberries
  • 8 ounces heavy whipping cream
  • 3 tbsps. powdered sugar


  • Prepare instant pudding according to the package instructions. Typically this includes adding mix to a large bowl, and adding in 2 cups of cold milk. Whisk until thick. Refrigerate as puff pastry thaws.
  • Allow puff pastry to full thaw until it is cool and workable.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Slice puff pastry into 9 even squares per sheet.
  • Bake puff pastry for 13-15 minutes. Pastry will rise and be golden brown. Be sure not to over bake or the pastry will get scorched bottoms.
  • Cool puff pastry for 15 minutes before carefully separating the tops from the bottoms.
  • Add whipping cream and 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar to the stand mixer bowl. Whip for 3-5 minutes on high speed or until soft firm peaks appear. Do not over whip or you will be making butter. Place whipped cream in a large piping bag.
  • After each puff pastry square is separated, layer the bottom with 1 tablespoon of lemon pudding.
  • Add 4-5 raspberries on top of the lemon.
  • Pipe whipped cream onto each square. Add the top layer of the puff pastry and sprinkle each with a pinch of powdered sugar. Store in the fridge until ready to eat.
