Perfect Pistachio Dessert


Light, fluffy, and oh so good! A perfect pistachio dessert!


- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 stick of butter, melted (I used Imperial)
- 3 Tbs healthy sugar substitute like Swerve
- 1 small box (1 oz.) pistachio instant pudding
- 2 cups 1% milk
- 4 oz. cool whip
- 4 oz. cream cheese
- 1/3 cup powdered sugar

Mix the flour, butter, and sugar substitute. The mixture will be crumbly. Spread into 9 inch x 13 inch baking dish. You may see the bottom of the dish. That's ok, it doesn't need to be a thick covering on the bottom; just even. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Let cool. In a large bowl, mix pudding and milk until semi-thick. Add cool whip, cream cheese, and powdered sugar. Spread pudding mixture over cooled crust and refrigerate for several hours before enjoying. You can also freeze (pull out of freezer 30 min. before enjoying). Add a dollop of cool whip to each serving and sprinkle with crushed pistachios if desired.

what makes you happy." - Lucille Ball
