Even though the ingredient amounts must be wrong I`m giving it 5 stars! As stated- 1 (2.00 ounces) package instant pistachio pudding mix 3 cups milk What I used- 2 boxes of 3.4 ounces of instant pudding mix 3 cups milk I used the 2 boxes becuase I poured the 3 cups of milk and found that no way it would be thick enough.so I added another box of pudding. The crust is just fabulous as well as the cheese filling. Then topped with the pisachio pudding just yum! I skipped the remaing whipped topping.It really doesn`t need it! I had my slice and my DH is taken the rest to work.I`m also doing an edit for this recipe!
I love this recipe and used to make it alot more when the kids lived at home. Now, it's a once in a while treat. When I make this in the summer, I use 1 1/2 cups chocolate wafer crumbs (or any other crumbs) and 3 tablespoons of melted butter and just press this into my pan & refrigerate until firm. Who wants to turn the oven on on a hot summer day?
This was a big hit at my St. Patty's day dinner last night! Extremely easy to make and should be made ahead. I didn't chop my pistachio's finely enough for the crust; next time I'll get them really small, otherwise they're tough to fork/cut through and prevent the crust from being smooth. I used light pudding, whipped topping and cream cheese with no problems at all! Loved it and will be making again!
I forgot all about this recipe...I used to make this years ago...served it for my St Patricks Day dinner....Everyone enjoyed it..
No family reunion would be complete without this dessert! My DH's family always called it just 'Green Stuff' and it's always been THE favorite dessert in his family. Thanks for posting.
This recipe is called Pistachio delight in my husband's family and it is sinfully delightful! It's a big portion so you can freeze it. Worth making for sure.
