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).

Sassy - he picture and the recipe came originally from the Mom of a friend of mine. She (a really cool lady in her 60's) referred to it as "better than Bert Reynolds". We soon adopted it as a family favorite at my house. I'm not sure as to the origin of the original recipe, but it IS good.
