"This is a creamy pudding-like pie. It has thick chocolate filling, thick cream cheese filling, a butter/nut crust, and is topped with whipped cream. Definitely not for those who are on a diet." — Nancy Scott

So good and sinful! I increased the crust to 1 c. butter + 1.5 c. nuts + 1.5 cups flour and it was plenty to fill the bottom of a 9x13 pan. The crust is so good, you can't have too much of it! I tried the recipe once with 1 chocolate and 1 vanilla pudding, and again with 2 chocolate puddings, both were yummy. Also instead of chocolate shavings on top, I just set aside a few chopped nuts and sprinkle those on top. You can't go wrong with this recipe!
I have had this pie many many times, but this particular recipe is terrible. The measurements are off (especially the pudding part). I have way more of the cream cheese layer than the pudding layer, and usually it was about equal parts of both. The consistency of the cream cheese layer was also off. It was too runny. I wouldn't make this again from this recipe.
This is my old Lemon Lush Recipe!! I had forgotton all about it. It is wonderful and easy. I use a little less (1/2) butter in the crust and powdered sugar instead. Any nuts I have on hand...cashews, pecans and walnuts work the best. My lemon version uses 2 pkgs instant lemon pudding, follow the rest of the recipe and use a little lemon zest to decorate.
I grew up with an easier version, which is just as good, and makes more sense, as it is blonde, just like Mr. Redford! Substitute the crust mixture for a pre-made graham cracker crust. Substitute the puddings with two packages of butterscotch pudding. Substitute the semisweet chocolate with 3 crushed butterfingers. layer: 1/2 cream cheese/cool whip filling 1/2 crushed butterfingers all pudding filling 1/2 cream cheese cool whip filling 1/2 crushed butterfingers Ten minute pie. Super fast, super good.
The recipe is delicious but it needed a few adjustments for me. For one the crust could in no way cover a 9x13 pan no matter how hard I tried, so I moved it to a 8x8 pan and it was perfect, but I like a little thickness to my crust, especially this one as it is like a shortbread. The other thing was not to put whip cream in the cream cheese mixture because it really dilutes the flavor. Also, if you toast the nuts before adding them to the crust really makes a difference. Excellent end result!!!
My grandmother made this when I was little, and I have never met anyone who ever called it by the same name. I grew up thinking Robert Redford was just the name of a great dessert!! Thank you for all of the memories that came flooding back when I bit into this fabulous pie! I am forever grateful....
I'm giving the recipe 4 stars because the flavor is unbelievable but the consistency in the whipped cream layer is to runny, need to make an adjustment to this part of the recipe.
The rest is perfect I omitted vanilla pudding and it was perfect
This an old family favorite I had been looking everywhere for! Who would have thought this favorite dessert would be under this name? :) Oh yeah, FYI: My mom called it a 'Dandie'
