No, not that kind of orgasm, however I will tell you that when you take a bite of this dessert, noises will escape your mouth that may bear a strong resemblance to the moans, whimpers, and “Oh My Gods” one might associate with a full-on orgasm. Okay, perhaps I am exaggerating a bit, but this dessert is blissfully delicious and will leave your sweet tooth MORE than satisfied.
This dessert has been around for awhile, although I inherited it from my mother ages ago, before the internet took over our lives. It’s simple to prepare and always a hit at potlucks. Speaking of which, I did recently participate in a work-related potluck and knew from the get-go I was going to bring this dessert (actually I was told by my co-workers to “bring this or die”) so I chose not to die. I really wanted to take my own photo for this post, but I knew there would be none left. So I did what any desperate person would do, I grabbed a picture off the internet. You can’t post a recipe without a photo and I wasn’t going to post a picture of an empty pan. In the internet world, that’s punishable up to 10 years, or so I’ve heard.
Pistachio Pudding Dessert
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl, using a pastry cutter, mix together the following:
1 c. all purpose flour
1/2 c. shortening
2 tbsp. granulated sugar
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
Press this mixture into the bottom of a 9×11″ cake pan* and bake for 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Let cool.
*Hint: Dusting your hands in flour before pressing the crust mixture into the baking pan will likely help prevent an episode of advanced delusionary schizophrenia with involuntary narcissistic rage. Yeah, that shit will stick to your hands.
CREAM CHEESE LAYER:
In a large bowl, beat the following with an electric mixer:
1 8oz package cream cheese (softened to room temperature)
2/3 c. powdered sugar
1/2 large tub of Cool Whip
Spread this over cooled crust.
In large bowl, mix together:
2 packages of Instant Pistachio Pudding
3 cups cold milk
Spread pudding layer over cream cheese layer.
FINAL COOL WHIP LAYER:
Over pudding layer, spread the remaining tub of Cool Whip
For garnish, sprinkle with chopped walnuts, if desired.
This recipe is perfect for summer, Easter, and every other day in between.
Now, go enjoy your mouth-orgasm <– that is just wrong on so many levels. Right?
