A delicious dessert. Definitely improves with age so ideal for making the day before. The first time I used a biscuit base (crushed shortbread and melted butter to the right consistency - no baking) and it turned out fine. Thanks for sharing this gem of a recipe.

  3. In another bowl, pour the milk in and beat in the instant pudding until thick - about 3 minutes. Spread this over the cream cheese layer.
