Mystery Pudding Dessert

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Sydney Mike

Here's another recipe clipped from a newspaper a handful of years ago, & great for those of us who like puddings! Preparation time does not include the time for the crust to cool to room temperature. (Recipe edited in Apr 08 to slightly increase the crust ingredients!)

This was a yummy dessert that the whole family enjoyed. I was somewhat surprised that the kids decided that it would be better without the nuts (I used walnuts). It does make alot and is very rich so a little goes a long way. Thanks Sydney Mike. Made for Gimme5 Tag.
