Recipe: Boston Cream Pie

Boston CREAM pie is a dessert that can be made up with some of the recipes already given. It is a favorite dessert with many people and is very high in food value.
To make Boston CREAM pie, first bake two layers, each about 1 inch thick, in round pans, using the plain-cake or cottage-PUDDING recipe. Then, between these layers, put a filling about 1/2 inch thick. This filling should preferably be the one used for CREAM puffs, although any similar filling stiff enough to stand up well may be used instead. Cover the top layer with 1/2 to 1 inch of slightly sweetened and flavored whipped CREAM. The cake should not be put together until both the layers and the filling have cooled.
