If you're looking for a fun and refreshing easy pudding recipe, our Lemon Napoleons are really going to hit the spot. We've combined a lemon pudding cream with a flaky pastry creating a heavenly dessert. It's made with easy, everyday ingredients, plus it's bursting with lots of lemony freshness. Top each slice with our oh-so-good icing and a few berries, and get ready for a creamy pudding-filled favorite!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (17-ounce) box frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 2 (4-serving-size) packages instant lemon pudding and pie filling
  • 1 1/2 cup cold milk
  • 1 (8-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Unfold both sheets of puff pastry, place each on a baking sheet, and bake according to package directions; let cool. 
  2. In a medium bowl, combine lemon pudding mix and milk; whisk until thickened, then gently fold in whipped topping. Spread over 1 sheet of pastry. Place second piece of puff pastry flat side up over pudding. Using a baking sheet, gently press down the top sheet, slightly flattening it, making sure not to press so hard that the filling oozes out.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk confectioners' sugar and lemon juice until smooth. Pour icing over top of pastry and spread to the edges. Chill at least 4 hours or until firm. Using a serrated knife, cut into squares and serve, or cover loosely and chill until ready to serve.

whats frozen puff pastry?

Hi there! It's a box of frozen pastry, usually with individually folded and wraps sheets of dough. You should be able to find it in your freezer aisle. Make sure to ask your grocer for help if you can't find it right away!

When assembling do you put in a dish with sides or on a flat platter?

Hi there! You'd want to put this on a flat platter. Enjoy!
