Pistachio Creme Dessert

My dad jokes that this recipe is in the handbook of the church because so many mormons make it. Whatever...I just think its that good. Its so creamy and delicious that every bite will have you wanting more- its certainly not on the weight watchers menu, so watch out! :) You can use whatever flavor of pudding you prefer- chocolate and pistachio are my favorites. You are only limited by your imagination!

Pistachio Creme Dessert
The Mormon Handbook :)

1 1/4 cup flour
1 cup chopped pecans
1 cube butter (room temp) cubed

Mix the flour and butter together and add the nuts. Reserve about 1/4 cup and set aside. Press remaining mixture into a 9x13 pan and cook at 350 for 20 minutes. Cool completely.

Layer One:
8 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 c. fresh whipped cream (or use Cool Whip)

Mix together until smooth and spread on the cooled crust.

Layer Two:
1 small package instant pistachio pudding
1 small package instant vanilla pudding
2 1/2 cups milk
1 tsp vanilla

Mix together, cool until thickened (about 2 min.) and spread over layer one. Top the whole thing off with a layer of fresh whipped cream and sprinkle reserved crust mixture on top. Enjoy!
