    MarthaStewartWanabe's Note:

    This recipe reminds me of those big, fun family dinners we used to have when I was a kid. This is one of my favorite recipes of my grandmother's. The layers consist of a nutty baked bottom crust, creamy cheesecake-like center and top layer of pistachio pudding. If desired, you could also use any other flavor of pudding mix. Yummy!

      Perfect dessert for our Christmas Eve get together. I was looking for something fun and festive and this fit the bill. We loved it. I followed your recipe, except I add a layer of Cool Whip on top of the pudding. Thank you for a lovely dessert that we all loved.

      I absolutely love this recipe! I substituted pecans for the crust, and used lemon pudding instead of pistachio. Simply delicious! Thank you for sharing! : )

      I've made something very similar to this for years. It always goes over very well. I use pecans on the crust instead of walnuts; cream, whipped instead of the Cool Whip; and not as much confectioners sugar. For extra color at Christmas I will top with a dollop of whipped cream and a red cherry. It looks very festive.
