    Using an electric mixer, beat milk, cream and pudding mixture in a large bowl until thick, smooth and creamy (don't overmix; mixture will become lumpy). Carefully spread mixture over biscuit base in prepared pan; level top. Top with remaining biscuits, shiny-side up, cutting to fit tightly. Gently press biscuits down.
