Two questions re: Boston Cream Pie

virtualfrolic | Mar 12, 2008 07:31 AM

Hi all!

I just saw a delicious looking Boston Cream pie on TV last night, and I'm thinking of attempting the recipe this weekend. So, two questions.

The show featured the Parker House Hotel's Boston Cream Pie, which is supposedly the creator of the Boston Cream Pie. In looking up recipes, it looks like this is the recipe.
also on Food Network
(looks to be the same recipe).

Anyhow my two questions are:
1. Has anyone tried the Parker House Hotel recipe - any feedback? Do you have any other recipes you'd recommend?

2. Does the Boston Cream pie hold up well? I'm going to have to travel (about 2 hours). It's winter, so it's not terribly warm, but it's not refrigerated either. Do you think the pastry cream will go bad?

Thanks in advance for your help!
