Pistachio Pudding Delight Squares

Betty Graves


Cool and refreshing dessert to have any time. I enjoy fixing this during the summer months. Also can substitute the pistachio for chocolate pudding if desired. I have tried both ways and both are refreshing to eat.

How to Make Pistachio Pudding Delight Squares


  1. Crust: Mix butter, flour, nuts and sugar. Press into a 9 x 13 inch pan. Bake 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Let cool.
  2. Layer 1: Mix powdered sugar, cream cheese and cool whip; spread on the cooled crust.
  3. Layer 2: Beat together pudding mix and milk until thick. Spread on your cream cheese layer.
  4. Topping: Spread remaining cool whip and sprinkle with nuts. Also you can garnish with bits of chocolate if you like. I didn't do that in the picture above. Refrigerate and cut into squares.
