My little sister made this over the Thanksgiving weekend, and ever since I tasted it I have been craving it. I got the recipe from her (a recipe from her husband's family, one of his favorite desserts) and made it yesterday. It's already half gone. Oops :)
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)
1 cup flour
Combine until crumbly, pat into bottom of 9x13 pan. Bake at 300 degrees for 25 minutes. Cool completely.
1 cup powdered sugar
8 oz. cream cheese
1/2 large pkg. (16 oz.) Cool Whip
Combine powdered sugar and cream cheese. Add Cool Whip and spread over crust.
2 pkg. instant pudding (1 large, 1 regular)
3 cups milk
Mix. When set, pour over the second layer.
1/2 large package Cool Whip
Chocolate shavings and/or additional chopped nuts for garnish
Spread over pudding layer. Sprinkle with additional chopped nuts and/or chocolate shavings.
