Layered Pudding Dessert

This recipe is all over the internet and has been around for years.  It’s a classic dessert.  I haven’t made it forever!  I forgot how much I love it.  I used chocolate pudding, but you can use any kind of pudding you like.


  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup finely-chopped pecans
  • 2 eight-ounce packages softened cream cheese
  • 1 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • 2 eight-ounce containers Cool Whip
  • 3 cups milk
  • 2 small boxes instant pudding, any flavor

How to make it

  • In medium mixing bowl, cut together one stick butter or margarine, flour, and chopped walnuts or pecans.  Press evenly into ungreased 9 x 13-inch pan.   Bake for approximately 10 minutes in a preheated 350-degree oven until light golden brown.  Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, cream together confectioner's sugar and softened cream cheese.  Fold in one 8-ounce container whipped cream.  Spread over cooled crust.
  • Beat milk and two packages pudding mix.  Spread over cream cheese layer.  Spread one 8-ounce container whipped cream over pudding layer.
  • If desired, sprinkle additional finely-chopped walnuts or pecans over top layer.  Refrigerate several hours or overnight until ready to serve.

Oh my gosh! I am trying to get back on a diet. Guess I will have to put it off to try these.
