    Amazing. I made this around a week before shavuos and then froze it in a bag. I took the cheesecake out of the freezer around 2 days before Shavuos, and I added a crust, topping, etc a few hours before serving. The leftovers lasted around a few weeks in the fridge.

    It gets points for being ridiculously easy to make and the texture was nice but as far as taste goes, it just tastes like vanilla pudding. I won’t be making this again.

    I made these in canolies and they were AMAZING!! please be aware when buying the pudding that you buy INSTANT pudding. by mistake I bought regular powdered pudding and it was just not thickening I put it in the fridge overnight and it still would not thicken so I read the recipe again, watched the video again and then finally reading the posts where I saw a reply to a post that you must use instant vanilla and that saved the day!! BH!!

    I made it for my mishloach manos, it was really easy but not very sweet so added vanilla sugar. I guess adjust to your liking. DON'T FILL THE PIPING BAG ALL THE WAY LIKE I DID.....!!!!

    Came out great. Super easy. Made it in one pan, not in small private dishes, and the slices came out nice and firm.

    this may be because you didnt use instant pudding mix if you use pudding mix that says instant it should work

    Make sure you’re using instant pudding mix regular cooked pudding that you put on the stove will not work for a no bake recipe
