Here is a recipe that has been passed down in my family and is almost always at every family gathering. A light, cool and refreshing layered dessert with a shortbread crust that is easy to make. A great way to end any meal, whether it be a holiday gathering or a barbecue. You can also use any flavor of pudding for this dessert. I have tried it with chocolate which is really good too.
Lemon Pudding Dessert
1 cup cold butter,cubed
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese,softened
1 cup confectioner’s sugar (powdered)
