Davy's Delight

Davy's Delight - my Grandma Bogue's recipe.  One of her quintessential, Midwest, good-stuff-in-the-icebox recipes.  I had a request for it and thought I'd post it on the blog rather than just email it.  That way, the world can have it.  It's very similar to other versions floating around under different names, and I haven't made it recently so I don't have a picture.  It's still really, really good.

Davy's Delight

1 C flour
1 stick margarine or butter
1/2 C chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)
2 T sugar
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 C powdered sugar
1 C Cool Whip, plus additional for topping.
2 small or 1 large pkg. of instant chocolate pudding mix (it is possible to vary the recipe using other flavors)
3 C milk

Melt butter or margarine and mix with flour, nuts and 2 T sugar.  Press into bottom of 9x13" pan and bake at 350 for 15 minutes.

Mix cream cheese, powdered sugar, Cool Whip in mixer for second layer and spread over cooled first layer.

Mix pudding and milk for 3rd layer and spread over second layer.

Cover with more Cool Whip (whatever's left in the tub) and refrigerate for a few hours until serving.  May top with more chopped nuts.

Yum! We call it 'torte' and my husband asks for it every birthday. And per your last post, we are positively pro-gluten in our household, too!

I never heard of it, but with those ingredients (only using real whipping cream - yum!) it has to be good!
