Since my last recipe was “Company Casserole”, I though it was only fitting to give you my recipe for “Neighborhood Pie”, a recipe given to me by my Sister-in-law that became an instant “hit” in my house. My kids think it’s great when I make both…the menu sounds so “Welcoming”, and it soon became a favorite of the grandkids, too!

This is such a great summer dessert, one that needs to be kept refrigerated, so keep that in mind. It’s easy to make, and you can use any flavor pudding mix you want. Pistachio is my family’s favorite, but we have found coconut, lemon or butter pecan pudding mixes to be very good too.
If you are looking for a dessert for a gathering of people, you can double this recipe. I’ve used a glass, lasagna pan for social gatherings, or 2—13”x9”

pans, and it’s always a big hit. (Just make sure they have a refrigerator!)

Recipe: 1st layer
1 stick melted margarine
1 cup of flour—add while margarine is still hot
½ cup chopped nuts—walnuts, hazelnuts, or almonds are good

Mix together and press in bottom of 9”x13” pan or pie plate…cook at 350*
12 – 15 minutes. Cool

2nd layer
1 cup of Confectioners Sugar
1 –8 ounce package of cream cheese, softened
1 cup of cool whip

Beat ingredients together then spread carefully over crust

3rd layer
2 packages instant pudding mix…any flavor
2 ½ cups milk

Beat and let thicken. Spread over the top of 2nd layer. Top with Cool Whip, and sprinkle chopped nuts on top,(optional).
