I was talking about a favorite Spring-time dessert last week with some friends online, 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 from one of my aunts, and was often present at family gatherings and holiday meals when I was growing up. We appropriately called it Wonderful.
WONDERFUL Dessert Recipe – a traditional family favorite for the holidays
- 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 for 20 minutes 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.
