Community Recipe from


  • Crust
  • 2 cup(s) all-purpose flour
  • Center:
  • 1 cup(s) pecans chopped
  • 2 stick(s) butter softened
  • 8 ounce(s) cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup(s) powdered sugar
  • 8 ounce(s) Cool Whip thawed and divided
  • 2 package(s) lemon instant pudding mix 3.4 oz
  • 2 2/3 cup(s) milk
  • Sprinkle on top:
  • 2 tablespoon(s) pecans chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F. Don't overbake the crust, the pecans will get bitter.

  2. Combine flour, 1/2 cup pecans and butter in a medium bowl and mix well. Press onto the bottom of an 11 x 8-inch baking dish. Bake until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Let stand to cool.
  3. Place cream cheese in a medium bowl. Beat with an electric mixer set at medium speed until fluffy. Add confectioners' sugar and beat until mixture is light and fluffy.
  4. Add 1 cup whipped topping to cream cheese mixture and fold in gently. Spread over cooled crust.
  5. Combine pudding mix and milk in a medium bowl. Beat until thickened. Spread on top of cream cheese layer. Top with the remaining whipped topping. Sprinkle with remaining pecans. Chill covered for 1 hour. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
