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

Step-By-Step

1Cream 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.
2Meanwhile, blend together the 16 oz. whipped topping, 8 oz. cream cheese, and the sweetened condensed milk. Set aside.
3Layer 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.
