This is another hit recipe from my Mom. She is such a great cook. I have had this recipe both ways and love the pistachio version. You could actually use any flavor of pudding that you like. We'll just call it pudding dessert to make it easier.
Mix together: 1 cup melted butter
1 cup flour
1/2 cup nuts (I use pecans because that is what I like but walnuts are good too)
Press into the bottom of a 9 x 13 pan. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Let cool.
Mix together: 8 oz. cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar (sifted)
Gently fold in 6 oz. cool whip. Spread gently on top of crust.
Mix 2 (4 oz.) pkgs. instant pudding according to package directions. *you can use the smaller packages if you like less pudding.* Spread carefully over cream cheese layer.
Top with: 6 oz. cool whip
1/2 cup chopped nuts
chocolate curls or mini chocolate chips, if desired
Refrigerate until firm. Best served cold.
