I found this recipe that was MIA for 15 years while unpacking after the move to Florida. It is delicious and starts with a frozen pound cake. The filling starts with 2 packages cook and serve vanilla pudding. Cook time is for the almonds and pudding only.

This is a wonderful and easy recipe!! I have used it for years. However mine calls for one more DELICIOUS STEP, sprinkle each layer with Rum before adding the filling/frosting. Try it you'll like it too. :-) Ingrid
