This dessert was served to us several years ago. We liked it very much. I was given the recipe, but for some reason never made it, until two weeks ago. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Guests will think you have worked hard on this.
A. One cup all purpose flour, dash of salt, 1 Tbls. sugar, one stick margarine or butter, 1/2 cup pecans chopped. I often use walnuts in place of pecans. Mix together and press in baking dish (or pan) 9x13. Bake 350 D. 15-20 min. until lightly browned. Cool. Easier to mix if margarine is very soft.
B. One cup conf. sugar, 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, one cup cool whip. Blend together with mixer and spread over baked crust.
C. In large bowl put 3 cups milk, one package each of instant chocolate and vanilla pudding, 4 oz. each. Mix well, let set 5 minutes, then spread over cream cheese mixture.
Top with cool whip and more chopped nuts and refrigerate. Or you may refrigerate and put on cool whip at serving time.
