This weeks spin was easy enough...a dessert. I got plenty of those but I will choose a family favorite. This was put into a family cookbook that was given to one whole side of my family and i make it on almost every occassion that I bring something.
First Layer-Crust (for a 9X13 cake pan)
In a small to medium size pan, on medium-low heat melt 1-1/2 sticks of butter (or margarine) and 3 tablspoons of sugar stirring constantly.
Add: 1 1/3 cups flour and
1/3 cups chopped nuts (optional)
Press into the cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees until crust is light brown, approximately 20-25 minutes. Let cool 30 minutes before adding the next layer.
Second Layer-Cream Cheese:
In a medium mixing bowl, using an electric mixer blend 8 oz. cream cheese and 1/2 cup sugar. Cream together. Add half of a large (16 oz) carton of Cool Whip.
Third Layer-Pudding Mix:
In a medium mixing bowl (with mixer or by hand) blend the following:
2 small packages or 1 large package of chocolate* instant pudding mix and
3 cups of milk
* You can substitue any flavor of pudding that you choose. Banana is also a very delicious flavor!
Fourth Layer-Cool Whip:
Add the rest of the cool whip and spread over the top.
Refrigerate for about 3 hours before serving. Serve cold.
