A butterscotch pudding dessert is perfect as the beginning of Fall approaches. With the buttery & nutty crust, this is a recipe perfect for the coming season.

This pudding dessert is refreshing and light. The buttery, nutty crust adds flavor and a light crunch. Substituting chocolate pudding is a wonderful option as well.
1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup chopped pecans, divided
1 package (8 ounces) Philadelphia cream cheese (softened or cubed), softened
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
3-1/2 cups cold 2% milk
2 packages (3.4 or 3.5 ounces each) instant butterscotch or vanilla pudding mix
In a small bowl, cut the butter into the flour until crumbly; stir in 1/2 cup pecans. Press into an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool.
In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until fluffy. Fold in 1 cup whipped topping; spread over crust.
In a large bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set; pour over cream cheese layer. Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes or until set. Top with remaining whipped topping and pecans.
Refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
I like to use roasted & salted pecans for some extra flavor.
