Pistachio Dessert

1c Flour
1T Sugar
1 Stick butter/margarine
1/2 c chopped nuts (I usually use walnuts or pecans but you can use other kinds of nuts too)

Mix and spread above ingredients in a 9X13" pan. Bake at 350 for 10-15 min (very lightly browned - hardly chanages color). Cool

Layer one:
1 8oz pkg cream cheese (may use low fat if you like but do not recommend non-fat)
1c powdered sugar
1 (9oz) pkg cool whip. (9 oz pkg are difficult to find in some areas. I buy a 12 oz pkg, weigh out 4 1/2 oz for this layer and use balance on the top). Lite Cool Whip works fine))

Cream sugar and cheese. Add 1/2 of Cool Whip, Spread on Crust

Layer two:
2 Pkg instant pistachio pudding....(also vg with 1pkg dark chocolate and 1 pkg vanilla pudding)
3 c milk

Prepare pudding with milk. Pour over top of cheese mixture. top with remaining cool whip. Chill several hours or overnight (by Becky)
