This is my absolute FAVORITE, tried and true recipe for silky smooth, incredibly rich, and creamy Pastry Cream. It's simple to make, remarkably stable, and comes out perfect every time. It's rich and thick enough to use as a filling for cream pies, layer cakes, and layered pastries like the classic Napoleon dessert. It's also creamy enough to easily pipe into pastries like eclairs and cream puffs.
