This was an excellent hot summer day desert, cool and refreshing. I do agree with others that the crust shouldn't cook till it's brown. It was hard, but good! It's not a desert that cuts cleanly or stays square because of the pudding mix, but who cares, it's the taste that counts.
This is a great recipe and I have served it a lot for guests at dinner. As noted do not cook until crust is brown otherwise it is very hard to cut. Add toasted nuts on the tope for extra crunch and I also serve with a stewed fruit selection from Ina Garten(opps am i allowed to say that here). This recipe is definetly a keeper.
