I know I'm going to have to stop giving five star reviews if I'm to be taken seriously...but this is [i]not[/i] the place to do it. This dessert was wonderful! [b]My dinner guests requested seconds![/b] It is very light, the flavors blend subtly, but it is sweet enough to please. I used cold butter, creamed it with the flour using my fingers (like a tart crust). It does crack when baked, but you don't know that when it's all put together. I made a lower fat, sugar free version using reduced fat cream cheese, lite cool whip and ff/sf pudding mix with 1% milk. The taste was not effected at all. I would definitely agree you need at least 12 oz of cool whip to get a good top layer.
