Pistachio Pudding Dessert

I remember this dessert from when I was a kid. My mom made it a few times and I loved it!

You could really use any flavour of pudding you want.  It would be great with Chocolate!

What you need,

1 cup flour
½ cup butter, softened
½ cup finely chopped pecans

8oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup icing sugar
1 (6 serving size) instant pistachio pudding
2 cups milk

1 cup whipping cream or cool whip
2-3 tbsp. slivered almonds

Start by making the crust. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.

In a medium bowl mix together the flour and softened butter until it resembles coarse sand. Stir in the pecans. Press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking dish.

Bake for 15 minutes until just starting to brown. Let the crust cool completely before going on to the next step.

In a large bowl combine the cream cheese and icing sugar, using an electric hand mixer, beat until light and fluffy.

Spread over the cooled crust.

In a large bowl combine the pudding and the milk, beat for 2-3 minutes until it begins to thicken.

Pour over the cream cheese layer.

Cover with saran wrap and let it chill in the fridge for a couple hours.

Just before serving spread a layer of whipped cream or cool whip over the top and sprinkle with the almonds.

Cut yourself a big slice and enjoy!

This dessert is so amazing! It is light and refreshing, a perfect end to any meal.
