4 Layer Pudding Dessert

This recipe was given to me by my first Mother in Law, Mary Anglin, who was a sweet and lovely lady. I of course lightened it where I could. I will be working to make this a more "natural" recipe in the future, so come back and check it out in a month or so. I don't like to use Cool Whip or white flour, so I'm going to make some adjustments to this recipe next time I make it.

Layer #1 - Crust

6 Tbsp. Butter, melted
1 cup Flour
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Layer #2
1 cup powdered sugar
8oz- 1/3 less-fat cream cheese
1 cup (plus) Lite Cool Whip
chopped pecans

Layer #3
2 small boxes instant chocolate pudding
3 cups 1% milk

Layer #4
1-2 cups cool whip (as desired)
chopped pecans
mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Heat ovento 350.

Layer #1; mix all crust ingredients and press into the bottom of a 9x13 pan, bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Cool completely (see my Friday-Funnies post regarding this). Mix pudding and milk, chill.

Layer #2; mix sugar, cheese and cool whip well, spread on cooled crust, sprinkle with pecas.

Layer #3; spread chilled pudding over first layer.

Layer #4; spread cool whip over pudding layer. Sprinkle well with pecans and/or chocolate shavings. Chill and serve.

Variation: Can add coconut or use instead of pecans. Try different flavors of pudding

Have a blessed day!
