I was looking through a collection of my grandmother’s old, handwritten recipes. My dad has been cleaning out some of her belongings and found her recipe box. Dad offered to let me look through them to see if there were any recipes I wanted to keep. As I was looking through her recipes, I found one “Next Best Thing to Robert Redford”.
And just in case you’re wondering about the rest of the recipe instructions and how to make the next best thing to Robert Redford…here is the entire recipe.
1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 (9 oz) carton frozen non-dairy whipped topping, thawed
1 (6 3/4 ounces) package instant vanilla pudding mix
1 (6 3/4 ounces) package instant pudding mix
3 cups cold milk
grated chocolate candy bar (optional)
Prepare bottom crust by mixing together flour, butter, and pecans until crumblike. Press mixture into greased 13×9-inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees 15-20 minutes until lightly golden. Cool.
Beat cream cheese until sugar until smooth. Fold in half of whipped topping. Spread mixture over cooled crust. Combine vanilla and chocolate pudding mixes. Beat in milk until smooth and thickened. Spread over cream cheese layer. Spread remaining whipped topping over top. Sprinkle with grated chocolate bar. Refrigerate overnight.
There you have it. Sounds like it would be a pretty good dessert.
