Seriously, you will be licking your fingers on this one…sneaking another bite when no one is looking! This is my husband’s favorite dessert and his mom will make it for him each year for his birthday! I’m lucky if I get a piece! Enough said….here’s the recipe:
1 cup flour
1 cup chopped nuts (I use chopped cashews or walnuts)
1/2 cup melted butter
Mix ingredients together and press down firmly into a 9 x 13 pan. It will be a very thin layer…just make sure it is well distributed. Bake crust at 350 for 13 minutes.
1 eight ounce package of softened cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1 eight ounce tub of Cool Whip
Blend all three ingredients together well. If it’s too thick add a little milk. Spread over cooled bottom layer and refrigerate.
TOP LAYER (Choose one of the following):
CHOCOLATE – Mix 1 (6 oz) package of instant vanilla pudding, 1 (6 oz) instant chocolate pudding and five cups of milk. Blend together until smooth and pour over the middle layer. Refrigerate until set. Serve garnished with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
BERRIES – Substitute raspberry or strawberry Danish dessert and frozen raspberries or strawberries as the top layer. Pour over the middle layer. Refrigerate until set.
LEMON – 2 pkgs. (3 oz) lemon instant pudding and four cups of milk. Mix until thick and add one can of DRAINED crushed pineapple. Mix together well and pour over the middle layer. Refrigerate until set.
