Guadalupe Pie

If you want a cool dessert for the warm days of spring and summer this is what you want to make. It is so easy but so tasty and easy to make. I got this recipe from my mother in law. The original recipe has a pecan shortbread type crust but my husband is anti nuts in anything other than a candy bar or by themselves so I make this with a graham cracker crust. I will put the recipe for the pecan crust but know that you can make it either way and it is still tasty.

Guadalupe Pie

1 cup flour
1 cup chopped pecans
1 stick butter, softened
Mix all together and press into a 9x13 inch pan. Bake at 350 until light brown. Let cool. YOu may also use a graham cracker crust also. Use 2 cup graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup melted butter. Mix together and press into the pan. (no need to bake)

Second layer:
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup cool whip or whipped cream(homemade)
Beat the cream cheese with the sugar until fluffy. Add the cool whip or whipped cream and mix well. Spread over the crust.

Third Layer:
Mix 1 large box of instant chocolate pudding with 1 1/2 cups milk until thick and combined. Spread over the cream cheese layer.

Fourth Layer:
Mix one large box of instant vanilla pudding with 1 1/2 cups milk until thick and combined. Spread over the chocolate pudding layer.

Fifth Layer:
Spread enough cool whip or whipped cream to cover the vanilla pudding layer.

Refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight and then cut and serve. Keep in the fridge. YOu may also garnish with grated chocolate , chocolate curls , or additional chopped pecans.

That does look super tasty! The first thing that came to my mind when I saw Guadalupe pie was 'She hails from the Oaxaca Parish Convent of the Immaculate Hearts.... Sisters.... Ladies.... Mountains.... of Guadalupe.'
