We loved this!!! So very good, the only change I made was w/ layer number 3. I am not fond of instant pudding so I made the cooked lemon pie filling for this...yum!

I was actually just about to post this recipe but found it was already here! This is soooo good & looks so fancy but is really quite easy to prepare!! To help reduce fat & calories, I used light cream cheese & Ultra Low Fat Cool Whip - and, it didn't affect the flavour or texture at all!

This is absolutely delicious. My family ate it up at a reunion! Just the right amount of sweet/ tart and smooth/ crunchy. Delisious!
