Someone emailed this recipe to me several years ago. It is extremely rich but worth the calories and fat...once in a while. Perfect for special occasions.

Ingredients

2 c
sugar
4 stick
butter
4
eggs
1 tsp
vanilla
1 1/2 c
flour
2 c
chopped pecans
16 oz
whipped topping
8 oz
whipped topping
8 oz
cream cheese
1 can(s)
sweetened condensed milk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cream together the 2 c. sugar, 4 sticks butter, 4 eggs, 1 t. vanilla, and 1 1/2 c. flour. Blend in the 2 c. pecans. Spread into a cookie sheet pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes. Cool cake. While cake is still in cookie sheet, cut into roughly 1" squares.
2
Meanwhile, blend together the 16 oz. whipped topping, 8 oz. cream cheese, and the sweetened condensed milk. Set aside.
3
Layer the cake alternately with the cream cheese mixture. I have used both a trifle bowl and and 9 x 13 baking dish; both work equally well. I make about 3 layers of each. If it seems like you might have too much for your chosen container you can make a small separate container. Top with the additional 8 oz. whipped topping. Can sprinkle a few extra chopped pecans as decoration.
