Vanilla Pudding Parfait


Here’s an easy and delicious recipe for a homemade cornstarch vanilla pudding you can make into this cute dessert parfait. I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July holiday. If your lucky enough to have today off, this is a delicious suggestion for a patriotic dessert. Traditionally this dessert is made with cubed sheet cake or angel food cake as a trifle or punch bowl cake. In this version, I just left out the cake and added some walnuts for texture. I topped it with Cool Whip and added more berries. I put it in a trifle bowl and it fit perfectly. If you are going to use the cake as a layer, it would fit better in a punch bowl.
