Pistachio Shortbread Dessert

      Pistachio Shortbread Dessert

     I have been dying to to make a Pistachio dessert for forever! I love Pistachio pudding, but sadly my children do not, so I waited for Easter and invited my mom and dad over,they both really loved it. Surprisingly it was VERY rich, you could only eat one piece. This was easy to make and dang it was tasty, I almost went the cheater route and used Shortbread Cookies; but I was feeling cheap,and I knew I could whip up Shortbread in 10minutes! Yes, it's that easy!  So next time you need a crust for something, consider making and using a Shortbread Crust.  I hope you enjoy it.
Happy Baking, Natalie


Adapted from Lil Luna

-To make the Shortbread
-First add the butter and sugar and mix together, cream well. 
-Then add baking powder and flour, then mix well.
-Now press as evenly as possible into the pan, and bake, then cool before adding cold ingredients on top.
 Creamy layer:
-First beat your cream cheese and sugar together until smooth, then add in 2 cups(that is one small container) of Cool Whip and mix in.
-Spread onto the cooled crust.
-Next make your pudding and pour onto the cream cheese layer.
-Lastly, when the pudding has set, spread the last container of cool whip on top, let it set for at least 2 hours together. 

One of my very favorite things are, Snyder's Gluten Free Pretzels! Oh my gosh they are awesome,and now they have flavors too!   You can buy them in 4 packs for a great price on
