If you are into Easy and Simple or need a pudding dessert in a hurry. Here are a few pudding dessert ideas. 

Dessert # 1 Jello Patriotic Mini Fruit Tarts

This dessert is so simple with the right tools. Stainless steel sauce cup  I bought my sauce cups at Walmart. Or you can use a 2 and 1/2 inch juice cup.

Dessert Decorator  using the large Star Tip.

Unfortunately the Dessert Decorator I have is no longer made. However, you can get an updated version of the one I have.

Just roll out the pie crust. Cut circles using the sauce cup.  Pop in the oven at 425 degrees instead of 450 degrees for around 10 minutes.  Fill with pudding mixture.  Add fruit such as strawberries and blueberries. Voila!

Dessert # 2 Pistachio Cream Strawberries

To make this dessert, cut strawberries in half. I cut a slice off the bottom of the strawberries to make the strawberries lay flat.  Use a Dessert Decorator with large star tip. Pipe pudding mixture on top of strawberries. Chill and serve.

Dessert # 3  Pudding Breeze A little more work involved, but yummy! I had to include this dessert because I couldn't stop eating it.

Care to share any of your pudding desserts. Just leave me a note here or post it on the buzz.

For those of you who want a challenge and make everything from scratch here are some pudding links. I am sure some of you have your favorites.

Thanks manella!

The pudding breeze sounds delicious and easy. Will make next time we're having company. Enjoyed your blog, Lela.

You know, I have never made pudding. I certainly can't decorate like you!

Patches, the pudding breeze crust is one you can't stop eating. So, I am glad everyone in my family helped me eat that dessert or I would have been a midnight snacker.

Cat Hill, Hey the decorating is all in the decorating tool. I am just a novice. You can get an updated version from Walmart for around $14.00. I am having fun using it. At first, I used the decorator to make fancy deviled eggs. I had it for 3 or 4 years before I actually used it on desserts.

I had to laugh at myself. I bought phyllo cups for ease of preparation and then I made my own vanilla pudding.....shh, don't tell anyone. That Pudding Breeze looks addictive! You are being too modest. There is an art to decorating that I just don't have. I think part of it stems from being excessively right handed. My left hand doesn't know it is supposed to be useful!

Wow...what beautiful pics. Those strawberries are a great idea.

Hello, Big Shots Mom- I bet your homemade pudding tastes wonderful. The Pudding Breeze is one of those desserts that your taste buds love. I will admit, I do like playing with my food.
Jul. 25, 2013 6:26 am
Hi, Mauigirl! I love the strawberries with the sugar free pistachio pudding. You can also use any kind of pudding, whipped cream, or Cool Whip. So easy to whip up.

Good Morning, Mother Ann- My little granddaughter loved the pudding cups. She called them fabulous. Of course she loved helping me make them. Next time, I would like to try making them with sugar cookie dough.

Oh Lela, I don't think it would matter if I had the proper equipment. My first attempt at deviled eggs was a fail this year and forget about decorating them. Deep sigh! However, I can appreciate the food talents of others while wishing they lived ever so much closer ;)
Jul. 25, 2013 2:29 pm
Cat Hill-I wish we lived closer, too. Wouldn't that be so fun!

I have three old stand-bys. The first is my fave!

This is a newer favorite, and a different take on the eclair dessert. I use canned caramel apple pie filling. I get it at Walmart during the holidays - and recently found it at Stater Bros [which made me happy!]:
Jul. 26, 2013 1:12 am
This is a favorite at work. Another version of this, is to leave off the Heath Bars and use lemon pudding, in place of the chocolate - which is what my friend asked me to make for her rehearsal dinner (=

Patches, I love your avatar! The Pudding Breeze is so good, so I hope you have lots of company to share it with.
Jul. 26, 2013 6:20 am
Gammaray-oh my I think your desserts sound so wonderful and what a variety! I am saving them to my recipe box! Thank you so much!
Jul. 26, 2013 11:10 am
I love your Blog here!!! People have made that 'Pudding Breeze' (love that name) recipe under so many different names and it is sooo good. I like to sprinkle chocolate Jimmies on it just before serving (some jimmies 'bleed' in the cream layer, so I add it last after refrigeration). I have a Georgia friend so calls it a chocolate lush, but we have simply called it chocolate torte for the last 40 year. It is so good, it is dangerous! LOL!!! [there is another recipe for it under the name "Guadalupe River Bottom Puddin' Cake"... guess the names are regional? There is also a pistachio one on this site called "Robert Redford Cake". ---> I LOVE YOUR PHOTOS! Inspiring!

Sue-Chocolate Jimmies would be very tasty on the Pudding Breeze. Come to think of it, it is similar to lemon lush dessert one of my coworkers made. Isn't that funny how different parts of the country call recipes by different names. Thanks, for stopping by.
Jul. 27, 2013 12:55 am
I hope you enjoy them!
Jul. 27, 2013 6:43 am
Thank you for the Pudding recipes
Jul. 27, 2013 8:09 am
Thanks for stopping by Linda54494!

Hi Lela, what great recipes! I love pudding. (Not sure why I don't make it more often) I have saved your recipes and will give them a try. Your pictures are so appetizing too! Yum! Thank you so much for sharing. Especially anxious to try the tarts.
Jul. 28, 2013 7:38 am
Hi Candice-if I make them again I would use my own pie crust or cookie crust. Did you see Sherri's photo today? Looks like she tweaked the Pudding Breeze-See her review. She used 1/3 less fat cream cheese, sugar free pistachio pudding and low fat milk. Looks yummy!
Jul. 31, 2013 8:12 pm
Lela, I couldn't "decorate" if my life depended on it, I'm sure! Can't even use the cookie press I was given! Loved the pics and recipes tho! Thanks for sharing!!

About Me
I enjoy cooking for our family sit down dinners. Although my kids are grown, we are a close family that enjoys 4-5 sit down dinners a week together. My family's favorite dinner is chicken enchiladas smothered in green chili. I have a passion for cooking, baking for the holidays and food photography.
My favorite things to cook
I am family oriented and spend time with my family enjoying meals. My favorite things to cook are Mexican food and any food my family asks me to cook. My family looks forward to home cooked Mexican food at least once a week and Italian food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am on a journey to reclaim family recipes that were lost when the cooks in my family passed away. Cooking traditions are a major part of my passion for cooking. On Christmas Eve, we always had green chili and tamales. Cookie baking, lemon bars, pizzelles , and potica have been a must at Christmas as long as I can remember. My family looks forward to homemade pizza, when we gather as a family to decorate the Christmas cookies. Thanksgiving wouldn't be Thanksgiving without noodles and gravy piled high on mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, and broccoli and rice casserole. On the 4th of July, there is the 4th of July Potato Salad that I make using 10 pounds of potatoes. Mexican Food is part of our weekly menu--green chili served over mashed potatoes or as a slopper (green chili poured over hamburgers.) I am always making tortillas for someone. They call my tortillas little white pieces of gold. Saturdays are Family night for dinner. It is the one day my kids can request a meal.
My cooking triumphs
Seeking help on the Buzz and the AR Blog has resulted in a few triumphs. I am extremely ecstatic about overcoming the yeast monster. I can now bake baguettes, focaccia and the best rolls in the world, my Grandma Rita's Butter Rolls.
My cooking tragedies
My first attempts at baking bread/rolls resulted in rock hard flat rolls. However, I am improving. Baking at High Altitude is somewhat of a challenge.
