I was talking about a favorite Spring-time dessert last week during my Easter Entertaining Live Chat in the CoffeeTalk Community on the BlogFrog, and promised that I would share the recipe here after the holiday. After eating a bowl of Wonderful for a before-lunch snack this morning, I remembered my promise. You will thank me later, I swear!
This dessert is an old family favorite, and was often present at family gatherings and holiday meals when I was growing up. We appropriately called it Wonderful.
- 1 1/2 cup flour
- 3 Tbsp brown sugar
- 1 1/2 sticks (12 Tbsp) butter or margarine (melted)
Press into the bottom of a 9×13″ pan. Bake at 350 degrees and then let cool.
- 1 package cream cheese, room temperature
- 1/2 package cool whip
- 1 cup powdered sugar
Spread over cooled crust and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Mix one large package of chocolate instant pudding according to package directions and pour over cheese mixture. Refrigerate for another 30 minutes.
Spread the rest of the cool whip on top of the pudding and garnish with chopped nuts, if desired. Keep in the refrigerator.
