Time out for Sundae Pie

Sundae Pie

9" x 13" dish, spray with Pam. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

First Layer
1 stick butter (cold)
1 C. flour
1 C. chopped pecans

Mix well and press into bottom of dish...cook 20 min. at 350. Cool
A food processor makes the first layer easier to mix.

Second Layer
8 oz. cream cheese (room temp)
1 C. powdered sugar
1 C. Cool Whip

Mix well and spread over cooled crust

Third Layer
1 small instant vanilla pudding
1 small instant chocolate pudding
3 C. milk

Mix well and pour over 2nd layer. Chill well and add 4th layer before serving.

Fourth Layer
Top with Cool Whip and grated chocolate bar and/or chopped nuts.

This recipe was given to me by one of my clients at work. Thanks, Laverne! It is so easy to make and will cause rave reviews. I get special requests for this dessert when we have potlucks at work.

I haven't turned my sewing machine on today. I worked until 2 p.m. then ran to the grocery store. Well, I didn't run because the roads were pretty slick. By the time I got home, the snow was coming down pretty steadily. By the time Jim got home around 4:30, I realized I'd forgotten the cream cheese! So, he drove me over to the local convenience store.

I've made the first layer of the Sundae Pie and let it cool. It's time to make the other layers so I can get back into the sewing room to get some labels put on finished quilts.

Just now catching up on my reading . . .

This is almost the same as what we used to call "Lemon Lush" because the recipe called for instant lemon pudding. I got the recipe from my mom - I don't remember who she got it from. Then we made a "Pistachio Lush" as I had instant pistachio pudding. Followed by "Chocolate Lush" - which of course I liked the best. I'll have to try your version.
