My mother in law found this recipe in a newspaper when my husband was a kid. He has loved it since then and we still make it at our home (not as often as he would like I’ve been told).

There are many other names for this treat, some are funnier than others.

What is it

1st layer:

1 cup of flour

1/2 cup of butter soften

With a fork or pastry cutter, mix it well, press it on a greased 9×13 and bake it at 350 for 10-15 minutes

2nd layer:

1 8 oz package of cream cheese

1/2 of a 16 oz Cool Whip Container (I use whipping cream, just whip 4 cups of the cream and sweetened to taste, still add the cup of powder sugar to the layer)

1 cup of powder sugar

Beat the cream cheese, add the sugar slowly and then add Cool Whip or whipped cream. Let the crust cool and then add this layer to it

3rd layer:

1 lg box of chocolate pudding

1 lg box of vanilla pudding

When adding the milk, do 2 cups per box instead of 3. Place this layer on top of the cream cheese one.

Kurt likes it with the cooked kind, I’ve used both and they are both very tasty.


Spread the rest of the Cool Whip or whipping cream to it. Refrigerate for a couple of hours before serving, it sets up nicely.
