    while the crust is cooling down, Beat softened cream cheese in a large mixing bowl nix until smooth. Slowly add in powdered sugar, beating after each addition until smooth. Fold in 1 cup of cool whip and the vanilla extract. Spread this mixture evenly over the cooled shortbread crust.

    OPTIONAL - spread slices of strawberry or any fruit or nuts over the cream cheese layer.

    In a separate bowl, beat or whisk the pudding mix with the cold milk according to the directions on package. put in fridge and Let set for a couple minutes, then spread over the strawberries (if using, otherwise spread over the cream cheese/Cool Whip layer.) Let set up another 5 minutes.

    Finally, spread over the remaining Cool Whip until even.

    Garnish with shaved chocolate, additional whole pecans and/or fruit. Chill at least 2 hours in the refrigerator or overnight before serving, cover it so it does not get a skin on it.
