If you don't already have the ingredients in your pantry for this dessert, RUN do not walk, to the nearest grocery store. This is TO DIE FOR!!!
It's the perfect dessert for a hot summer day. Cool and creamy and full of pistachio deliciousness.....
I had this before when I was a child, but I did not have the recipe until wonderful RINDYMAE posted it on her blog. Thank you, Rindymae!
Creamy Pistachio Dessert
1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans, plus a little more for garnish
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 16 oz container Cool Whip, divided
Two 3oz pkgs instant pistachio pudding
Preheat oven to 350-F.
Combine butter, flour and chopped nuts. Press into a 13x9" baking pan. Bake for ~15 min. Cool completely.
Beat cream cheese and powdered sugar together. Stir in 4 cups Cool Whip. Spoon over crust.
Mix pudding according to pkg. directions and pour over the cream cheese mixture immediately (I used about 1/2 cup less milk.)
Spread remaining Cool Whip over the top. Sprinkle with nuts. Let stand several hours or overnight before serving. Yum!!!
Why This Blog?
Come in and make yourself at home. I'm so happy to be able to share my recipes here with you.
I bake mostly cookies, quick breads, muffins and scones -- sometimes pie, sometimes cake, but nothing too fancy. I prefer simple recipes that call for ingredients that I already have in my kitchen.
These are the recipes I will share with you. They come from family and friends, magazine clippings saved through the years, favorite cookbooks, and other blogs.
I'm so glad you came to visit. Enjoy your stay!
