This fast version of a pastry cream is a useful hack to know if you like to make fancy French desserts without all the fuss! This consistency will work for any recipe where you need a cream that can stand up to layering or filling. If you need a cream that is less stiff, add more cream or milk one tablespoon at a time until you get the texture you need for your recipe.
