Pistachio and cheesecake, I was in heaven when this showed up at a family dinner (thank you Sandy!). Okay, so then add cool whip, and I'm one happy person. I like cool whip, so use some on top as well as in the layers. If you find a family size cool whip cheaper than the two 8 oz cool whips, get it...you can always add more to the top! :)
