How to Make Pistachio Pudding Dessert


  • 1Set ice cream out to thaw. I use 1/2 of a 1.5 qt of any kind of vanilla ice cream.
  • 2Place stick of butter in a 9x13 pan and melt in the oven on low temperature. While butter is melting, crush crackers with a rolling pin. Mix melted butter and crackers together and pat down evenly in the pan. Put back in oven for 8-10 minutes until crispy but not brown.
  • 3In a seperate bowl mix together pistachio and vanilla pudding with milk. Add a drop of green food coloring if desired. Fold in ice cream. Pour mixture over crumb crust and refrigerate for one hour to set.
  • 4After one hour spread Cool Whip on pudding/ice cream layer. If desired, sprinkle chopped nuts or cherries or shaved chocolate for decoration. Chill for couple hours before serving.
