This receipe is good but the crust need to be more firm. The cream cheese mixture can be doubled to make it a bigger dessert. I do not recommend doubling this recipe.

I made this into a decadent chocolate dessert by making a chocolate creme oreo cookie crust and used chocolate fudge pudding and chocolate whip topping. And then sprinkled crushed oreos on top - my husband couldn't stop eating it!

Yummy! I had 4 oz of fat free cream cheese that I needed to use up, and I found this recipe, which I cut in half and put in an 8x8 pan. It was really easy and quick. I used a processor to mix the crust ingredients, and again to mix the cream cheese (b/c I didn't soften it) with the sugar.

I have also been making this for years, it is my kids fav! and super easy. We use gramcracker, and nuts in the crust.

I have been making this dessert for 20 years. Kids and adults alike love it. Couldn't be simplier.

Very good and refreshing, and wouldn't know that the pudding and cool whip were sugar free! I had a little trouble with the crust, but it was still delicious!

Love this recipe! Mom made it for me growing up and now I make it for my family. :) One fun tip: use different flavors of pudding! It's great with pistachio pudding...and for baby showers I host, I use vanilla pudding and then use food coloring to make it blue or pink depending on the sex of the baby. It's a great, fun "themed" dessert!!
