I have wanted to post this recipe for so long, but couldn't name it. My boyfriend and I finally named it yesterday. In my family, it was known as Cheryl's Dessert because the band teacher brought it to Thanksgiving dinner. We added my mom's homemade pudding to it. It has it's new name because I used it to try to seduce my boyfriend last summer, but he was so satisfied that he had no use for me after eating it! The pudding recipe works for cream pies or parfaits or even banana or rice pudding. Just omit the cocoa and add banana or rice or coconut at the end. Preparation and cooking times do not include chilling time. All times are estimates.

Okay, so I had like 17 egg yolks to use and I found this recipe. I had to open two cans of milk, and there was like 1 1/4" leftover, so instead of whipped topping in the second layer, I whipped up the leftover milk till it was frothy (with a little sugar), added the cream cheese and 1.5 c of powdered sugar and four egg yolks and whipped if for a few minutes, then poured it over the hot crust and baked it for another 6 minutes or so. Poured pudding layer on top of that and omitted the toppings altogether. Very, very rich. Thanks, PaNik!
