Family Favorite Dessert

First Layer -

Cream 1 cup of sifted flour with 1 stick of softened butter (REAL butter). Add in one cup of chopped nuts (cashews and walnuts were a family favorite but I'm sure peanuts are good too).

Put in 13 x 9 pan (which you've sprayed with a bit of PAM) and press down. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. COOL.

Second Layer -

8 ounces Cream Cheese
1 cup sugar

Cream those together with spoon or hand mixer and add one cup of whipped cream or favorite whipped topping, blending well.

put that on (cooled) first layer.

Third Layer
Get out two bowls -
1 large package instant french vanilla pudding
1 large package instant dark chocolate or fudge pudding
beat each package with 2 cups of cold milk. Let chill for a few minutes to thicken, (while you wash those bowls).

Spread on Cream Cheese layer, first the vanilla, then chocolate.

Final Layer -

2 cups of whipped cream of whipped topping. Sprinkle with more nuts and shaved dark or milk chocolate.

Chill until serving. Refrigerate leftovers (if there are any).

I started this blog so the child I gave up for adoption could get to know me, and in turn, her children, as well as share stories for a family that lives too far away. So please keep it friendly, kid safe, and open to discussion, not criticism. This is my home. You can live in yours as you wish, but this is my place.
