Mom's Dessert

I have no clue what the original name of this was, but now it's just Mom's Dessert. Very yummy and isn't too rich so you can have piece after piece after piece... if you're not on a diet. Recipe is courtesy of (who else) my mom, and she knows how dumb I am so she includes instructions like "Just stir with a large spoon" that help me out.

Crust:

1/2 C margarine, melted
1/2 C chopped walnuts
1 C flour
2 Tbsp sugar

Combine ingredients for crust (just stir with a large spoon) & bake at 350 degrees for 12 -15 minutes (it'll be a very light brown). Let cool.

White filling:

1 8-oz & 1 3-oz pkg of cream cheese (if doubling, just use 3 8-oz pkgs.)
1 C powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups Cool Whip

Blend ingredients & spread on top of cooled crust.

Chocolate filling:

2 small pkgs INSTANT chocolate pudding mix
3 C milk (this is less than what it calls for on the pudding box)

Slowly beat milk w/ instant pudding until blended, then beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. Spread on top of white layer.

Carefully spoon & spread plain Cool Whip on top of pudding layer (it's hard not to get some of the pudding mixed in.) Make it look pretty!
You can add a few more chopped nuts on top if you want. Chill for at least 4 hours.

Ah yes! This one is great! I've seen it called both "three-layer dessert" and "sex in a pan" (which I think is really a catch-all name for any dessert that you don't know what to call, but is just SO good.)
