Aunt Freed's Butter Pecan Dessert

Recipe by Teresa M

This is rich, but Good. I like that it's hard to do wrong, and that you can also make it with other puddings. Chocolate pudding is delicious in this, as is coconut cream pudding topped with toasted coconut just before serving. It's also good with pitachio pudding for St. Patrick's Day.

WONDERFUL!!!! Of course I knew it would be since it is one of YOUR recipes, Teresa M. I couldn't find butter pecan pudding and didn't have time to go scouting for it so I used chocolate pudding instead. What a wonderful treat. Thanks again for another great recipe. By the way, I'll be making this again soon when I find the butter pecan pudding. :-)
