Dessert recipes with pudding and whipped cream taste better when refrigerated overnight or a minimum of at least 2-5 hours. Contrary to the popular belief, making quick and easy pie crust from scratch is not a hard job at all. It is very much possible to make your pie crust at home that tastes so much better than the store-bought pre-made pie crusts. Always remember to knead the dough with your hands and do not overdo it. Using a tablespoon or two of ice cold water in the dough helps in achieving the best pie crust texture. Before you begin to bake the crust, it must be chilled in the fridge for at least an hour. Lastly, do not add too much water to the pie crust dough as this will make the pie crust shrink while baking.

To get best results in dessert recipes, always use hundred percent pure vanilla extract with no corn syrup or additives. Make sure to cook the vanilla pudding until it turns thick before letting it set in the fridge. You can add cornstarch to pudding to help it set and achieve a creamy, thick texture. Pudding always tastes better when it is prepared from scratch as opposed to using a store-bought instant pudding that contains artificial colorings and flavors. Use instant pudding mix only if you must in the case of a situation where you're running low on time. To prevent the bananas from discoloring or turning brownish in color you can sprinkle a bit of lemon juice and give it a good tossing before you incorporate them in the dessert.
