    I have made a similar desert only used crushed lemon sandwich cookies as crust. I used to use the lemon pudding but now use a can of lemon pie filling instead. We love this recipe.

    Oh that sounds like a VERY good variation! I will try it next time I make this. I get many requests for this dessert! I also alternate pudding flavors, pistachio, butterscotch, chocolate are all excellent!

    When you do the cookie crust do you use the stick of butter and melt then add to the crushed cookie and then pat in the pan?

    Yes I melt butter and add to the crushed cookies but reserve some crushed cookies before adding the butter to sprinkle on top. We really love it. The other pudding variations sounds really good the possibilities are endless
