This recipe reminds me of my childhood! To make it a little easier, I generally use a crust of crushed Nilla wafers mixed with melted butter or a graham cracker crust. I also only use half the sugar for the cream cheese layer to make it a little less sweet and let the cream cheese flavor stand out.

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.

Easy and delicious! I made this for a potluck and it was a big hit. I couldn't find 8 oz. packages of pudding so I substituted 2 3.4 oz boxes and it worked just fine. I will definitely make this again.
