One of my nieces can cook but rarely does. The other one loves to cook. For this past Labor Day celebration, Bethany made one of these desserts and told her sister how to make the other. I was a very good girl and didn't have any, but the recipes look delicious, and Jack assured me they were.
Anyway, I give you Bethany's recipes:
1 C flour
1 C chopped pecans
1 stick butter, melted
Mix together and press flat on bottom of pan. Bake at 350 until golden brown.
1 C confectioner's sugar
1 small container Cool Whip
12 oz cream cheese, softened
Mix on medium to high speed. When crust cools, spread this layer on top of crust.
2 boxes instant chocolate pudding
Mix as directed on box and spread on top of white mixture (2nd layer).
Top with another small container Cool Whip and sprinkle with more pecan pieces.
Now, my sister-in-law said she's made this, using instant lemon pudding instead of chocolate, and coconut instead of pecans on top. This version sounds equally tasty to me.
CHOCOLATE CHIP PIE
1 Graham cracker pie crust
1 pkg Chips Ahoy cookies
1 C milk
1 container Cool Whip
Dip cookies in milk and layer evenly over pie crust. Cover with layer of Cool Whip. Continue with layers of milk-soaked cookies and Cool Whip to desired depth. Crumble several dry cookies and sprinkle on top.
Could this one get any easier?
Sorry I didn't take pictures of the desserts, but I was having serious cravings and couldn't trust myself to focus on them. You'll just have to use your imaginations.
Maybe I'll make the easy one and take it to work one night...like when I have a stomach flu or something.
