Oh how we love our cream pies. You know daddy doesn’t like them as much as we do. Sucks for him! But, this chocolaty goodness just might have him asking for a second bite.

Cook
Serves 12people
Ingredients
for the crust
1/2
cup (1 stick) of unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
1
cup of all purpose flour
1/4
cup of finely minced pecans
first layer
1
oz package of cream cheese, softened at room temperature
1
cup of powdered sugar
1
cup of Cool Whip (or homemade whipped cream
second layer
2
oz packages of instant chocolate pudding
3
cups of whole milk
topping
1-2
cups of cool whip (or homemade whipped cream
additional chopped pecans, for garnish,optional
grated chocolate or heath bits, for garnish,optional
Directions
1.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a bowl, mix together the flour, pecans and butter until mixture resembles cookie dough. Spread into the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch glass Pyrex baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely, about an hour.
2.
Mix together the cream cheese and powdered sugar until well blended. Add 1 cup of the Cool Whip and mix together. Spread this layer over the cooled crust.
3.
Mix together the two boxes of pudding with the 3 cups of milk until slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Carefully spread over the cream cheese layer.
4.
Spread the remaining cup of whipped topping on top. Cover and refrigerate - best if refrigerated 24 hours. Before serving, grate chocolate over the top and sprinkle with additional chopped nuts. Cut into squares.
5.
Variations: Can be made with a variety of crusts by substituting crushed cookies, graham crackers or vanilla wafers for the flour in the crust. An Oreo crust is excellent (see below). Can also use different flavors of pudding (vanilla, chocolate, butterscotch, lemon, etc.), or use any two different, but compatible flavors of pudding, either one layered on the other or blended together. Okay to substitute margarine, sugar free and lower fat products, if desired. Can also add a layer of sliced fruit, for example, use banana pudding with sliced bananas or vanilla with sliced strawberries.
6.
Oreo Delight: Combine 1-1/2 cups of Oreo cookie crumbs with 5 tablespoons of unsalted butter, melted. Press into the bottom of the pan and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 8 minutes. Set aside to cool completely, then proceed with remaining recipe. Crush additional Oreos to garnish top.
