My grandmother got this recipe somewhere, and it fast became a family favorite. It’s about the only dessert My Cowboy will eat. You can use any flavor of pudding you have a hankerin’ for. Guess what My Cowboy likes? — one box of banana flavor, and one of butterscotch — he calls it Bananascotch. I gotta hand it to him, it’s not bad!
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 sticks margarine or butter
2/3 cup chopped pecans
Mix and press in the bottom of a 9″ x 13″ baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Do not let it brown. Remove it from the oven and let it cool completely.
8 oz. cream cheese (not low-fat or no-fat)
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 of a large carton of Cool Whip
Mix together and spread on top of cooled crust.
3 cups milk
2 packages (4 1/2-oz.) INSTANT pudding, flavor of your choosing
Mix and put this on top of the cream cheese layer.
Spread the rest of the Cool Whip on top and sprinkle with chopped pecans. Refrigerate until serving.
