Nutty Torte

Nutty Torte

This is another family favorite, and one that I've made a couple times so I can attest to this recipes deliciousness!  Now to figure out a way to alter it so it doesn't have nuts so that my boys can eat it...

Crust:
1/2 cup butter, room temp
1/2 1/2 cup crushed pecans
2 TB sugar
1 cup flour

Middle Layer:
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup cool whip
1 cup powdered sugar

Top Layer:
3 cups milk
2 regular size (4 serving) boxes of instant pudding (any flavor, but chocolate is yummy!)
Cool Whip

For the crust: Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Mix together all the ingredients and press into a 9x13" pan.  Bake for 15 minutes and allow to cool.

For the middle layer:  Mix together all the ingredients until fully incorporated and spread on cooled crust.

For the top layer:  Beat together the milk and instant pudding.  Pour over the middle layer.  Carefully top with cool whip and refrigerate until set.  Sprinkle chopped pecans on top for garnish.
