Lemon Lush

Catrina Bowers got this from her mother-in-law. It's one of their family favorites. We chuckled at how the cream cheese layer of this sounded kinda like the cream cheese layer of the Georgie Porgie I brought. When I actually took a look at the recipe, it turns out it is VERY similar! Kinda opens up a whole world of possibilities. Using either recipe as a guide, you can take your pick of what kind of flavor you want with what kind of pudding you use. Rich and chocolaty or sweet, tangy and lemony...

1 C flour
1 stick butter
1/2 C pecans, crushed
1/4 C sugar
pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix and pat ingredients into 9x13" pan for 13-15 minutes then cool completely.

Second layer:
8 oz cream cheese
1 C powdered sugar
1 C cool whip
1 tbsp of lemon juice (optional)

Mix well (can use a mixer)and spread over cooled crust.

Third Layer:
2 small boxes Lemon instant pudding
3 C cold milk
8 oz cool whip

Blend pudding mix with 3 cups of cold milk and spread over cream cheese layer. Top with 8 oz of cool whip then sprinkle with leftover pecans (pecans on top are optional).
