Red, White and Blue Dessert

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
  • 1-1/2 cups cold milk
  • 1 package (5.1 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 3 cups fresh strawberries, halved
  • 1/2 cup fresh blueberries

     

Directions

  1. In a bowl, combine flour, pecans and butter. Press into an ungreased 13x9-in. baking dish. Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. In a bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar. Fold in half the whipped topping; spread over crust. In another bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set.
  3. Spread over cream cheese layer. Cover with remaining whipped topping. Decorate with strawberries and blueberries to resemble a flag. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving.

 

If you prefer, substitute raspberries for strawberries.
