This recipe is a winner!!! Extremely delicious!!! However, it is a different version of the famous "ROBERT REDFORD CAKE" that I was served at a Famous Hotel restaurant in San Diego CA and then at a famous restaurant in Hollywood CA and later in Cleveland OH during my visit there. Just for the record, the Pastry Chefs at the three locations did not use Peanut Butter or chocolate, it was strictly done with White Cake ,Vanilla Pudding, Vanilla Icing, Whip cream and Pecans.

This was sooo easy to make and everyone loved it. I made it for Thanksgiving dessert and it appealed to kids and pie lovers alike. I sprinkled mini chocolate morsels on top for decoration and it was delicious. Definitely one of our favorites.

This is a very creamy, rich and absolutely delicious dessert which is popular with everyone! The pecans in the crust help give a wonderful flavor. This recipe should get more than 5 stars! Selected and prepared for 2007 Christmas Spelling Bee.
