6 Mar

This wasn’t supposed to be made for another two days, but tomorrow is my husband’s “Friday,” so I figured I would make it so that he could take the leftovers to the guys.  He didn’t seem too upset about that.


Growing up, my mom would make this occasionally for a regular family dinner dessert.  However it was usually for when extended family came to town (we didn’t complain).

I wasn’t going to share the entire recipe, but it’s too good to not share!

4-Layer Delight

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) margarine
  • 1.5 cups chopped pecans
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-8oz pkg of cream cheese
  • 2 cups cool whip
  • 2 small boxes of instant pudding (any flavor, mom used chocolate, we use on coconut cream and one chocolate)
  • 3 cups milk

1st Layer: Mix flour, margarine, and pecans.  Spread into 13×9 pan & bake 20 minutes at 375*.  2nd Layer: Mix powdered sugar, cream cheese, and 1 cup of cool whip.  Spread onto mostly cooled 1st layer.  3rd Layer: Beat boxes of pudding and 3 cups of milk.  Spread on 2nd layer.  4th Layer: Add cool whip on top, sprinkle a few pecans on top (optional).  Chill and serve.

Oh, and the first piece is really hard to get out smoothly.  Just so you know.

Layer 1: Crust

3rd Layer

You can see all four layers!

Grandma’s Notes: 3/8/96- Went to School; watched Zach & Anthony in a play.  3/10/96- Our birthday girl at church was 2-yr old Robin Perry.  March 5.  May there be many more for this little girl.  It is a great responsibility to teach & train children today.  It calls for wisdom from God to do it properly.  LORD, AS MY LEADER, I TRUST YOU TO LEAD THROUGH THE TWISTS & TURNS OF LIFE.
