Aunt Hester’s Dessert

1 1/2 sticks (3/4 cup) butter or margarine
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup chopped nuts
8 oz. cream cheese
1 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 cup Cool Whip
2 packages INSTANT pudding
3 cups milk
1 tsp. sugar

Melt margarine and combine with flour and nuts, then pat into a 9×13 in pan. Bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees and then cool. Cream together the cream cheese and the confectioner’s sugar and add the Cool Whip. Spread this concoction over the cooled crust. Mix the pkgs. of pudding with milk and tsp. of sugar, and spread this over the cream cheese layer and chill. Top with remainder of Cool Whip and more chopped nuts.

Note: You can use any kind of pudding, even two different kinds, spreading one kind on one half of the pan and the other kind on the other half – good for satisfying everyone. One popular combination is half chocolate, half lemon.
