This dessert has been a family favorite for over 20 years and I've made a few adjustments. I can't show up at many family and friends picnics without it, they threaten to send my family home, haha!!! Using an 11x13" glass baking dish: Crust: 3/4 cup flour 1/2 cup crushed graham crackers 1 cup crushed pecans 3/4 cup butter (I love salted Plugra European style) Bake 22 minutes at 350. For the next layer I use: 1&1/2 cups softened Philadelphia cream cheese 1&1/2 cups confectioners sugar Refrigerate for about an hour to allow for the next layer. When making the next layer I have found it best to double the amount of Jell-O chocolate pudding and heavy cream then allow it to chill in the refrigerator for two hrs. Finally top with 2 cups of Cool Whip and sprinkle with 1/2 cup of finally chopped pecans. When making this desert in the summer I often skip the pecans on the top and replace them with blueberries in the top left-hand corner and sliced strawberries in rows to look like in American flag.

  1. Mix flour, chopped pecans, and margarine together. Press into a baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
  2. Mix cream cheese, confectioners sugar, and cool whip. Spread mixture on cooled crust, set aside.
  3. Mix instant pudding with milk. Put this mixture on top of cream cheese mixture. Top with cool whip (as much as you want) and a few chopped pecans.
