Remember when I posted the recipe for Mexican Delight a while back? I told about how my mom called it "delight" because she couldn't think of anything else? Well...here we go again. Another "delight"-ful recipe. My mom's made this for years...it's made the rounds in everyone's kitchen, I think. It's one of those things that's easy to throw together, feeds a crowd, is easy to change-up and is super yummy. My mom's always made this with chocolate, but when I saw strawberry cream pudding at the store, I knew I had to try it. It turned out really good and is a fun switch from chocolate.
1 cup chopped pecans - toast them for a better flavor
1 stick butter - softened
1 cup flour
2 3-ounce boxes INSTANT pudding - any flavor (I used Strawberry Cream and White Chocolate)
2 8-ounce containers Cool Whip
1 8-ounce package cream cheese - softened
1 cup sugar
3 1/4 cups milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
a medium bowl, combine the pecans, butter and flour until crumbly. Pat
into the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan. Bake for about 20 minutes until
lightly golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
mixing bowl, combine softened cream cheese and sugar. Beat until well
combined then fold in one container of Cool Whip. Spread mixture onto
the top of the COOLED crust.
In a medium bowl, combine pudding mixes and milk then pour over cream cheese mixture.
Cover with plastic wrap and chill for a few hours.
Spread remaining container of Cool Whip over the top of the pudding.
Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!
