Recipe for Lemon Jello Cream Cheese Dessert

What You Need

  • ½ cup melted butter or margarine
  • 1 ½ cups crushed graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 cup milled walnuts or pecans
  • 1 package softened cream cheese 8 ounce
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1 container whipped topping 8 ounce
  • 2 packages lemon jello instant pudding mix 3 ounce
  • 3 cups milk

How to Make It

Allow the cream cheese to soften by placing it onto the counter to reach room temperature about twenty minutes before preparation time.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Add the butter or margarine to the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch baking pan and then place it in the over while it is preheating to melt the butter in the pan. After melting the butter or margarine stir in the crushed graham cracker crumbs and the milled walnuts or pecans until the ingredients are thoroughly combined. Set aside 1 tablespoon of this mixture to prepare the garnish.

Press the remaining mixture into the bottom and sides of the 9 x 13 inch baking pan. Place in preheated oven and then bake for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow the crust to completely cool.

Using a medium size mixing bowl and an electric mixer on a high speed setting you will add the softened cream cheese and the milk. Beat until the mixture is fluffy and light in consistency. Fold in half of the whipped topping and then spread this mixture over the bottom of the cooled crust evenly.

Prepare the lemon jello instant pudding mix by following the directions on the back of the box while using a clean, dry medium size mixing bowl and the remaining 3 cups milk. Spread the lemon flavored pudding over the whipped cream layer. Spread the remaining whipped topping over this lemon pudding layer. Garnish the dessert by sprinkling the reserved crumb mixture over the top of the dessert. Place in the refrigerator overnight to completely chill or for at least 3 to 5 hours before cutting and serving.
