    NOTE: Our recipe calls for  making your own graham cracker crust, pastry cream, and whipped cream, but in a pinch, store-bought can be used easily. Shop your pantry and cabinets to add additional toppings like nuts and dried fruits. You can make the graham cracker crust and pastry cream a few days ahead of time.
