layered lemon dessert

This yummy lemon dessert is a new favorite of ours.  My  MIL made it for our Christmas gathering and we just couldn't get enough of it!! If you are a chocolate lover, you could totally switch the lemon pudding for chocolate pudding!
1 Stick of Butter, softened
1 Cup of Flour
½ Cup of Pecans, chopped
1 (8 oz.) Cream Cheese, softened
2 (8 oz.) Carton of Cool Whip
1 Cup of Powdered Sugar
2 Pkgs. Lemon Instant Pudding Mix
3 Cups of Milk

Combine butter, flour and pecans and press into a 9 X 13 baking dish to make crust. Bake 15-20 minutes at 350°. Cool completely before adding 1st layer.

1st Layer: Mix cream cheese with powdered sugar. Fold in one 8oz. carton of Cool Whip and spread on top of cooled crust.

2nd Layer: Mix 2 pkgs. of instant lemon pudding mix with 3 cups of milk and spread over 1st layer.

3rd Layer: Top with an 8 oz. carton of Cool Whip and if desired, sprinkle with chopped pecans.

Looks like it turned out good. I ended up making it again for my ladies Bible study pot luck and I think they enjoyed it also.
