Better Than Robert Redford

Growing up we made this dessert for a lot of family gatherings. I can't remember who originally gave the recipe to Mom, but it was in the early 80's. It was SO good that it's "Better than Robert Redford!" We usually just refer to it as Robert Redford. I've gotten some pretty funny looks when I've talked about it outside our family ;) This is a great make-ahead dessert.

1 c. flour (or 2 c graham cracker crumbs)
1 stick butter or margarine
1/2 c chopped walnuts

Melt butter, stir in flour and nuts. Spread in bottom of a 9x13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 mins. Cool completely.

Next Layer:
1 c. powdered sugar
1 8oz package cream cheese, softened
8 oz Cool Whip or whipped cream

Beat cream cheese until smooth; add powdered sugar and cool whip/whipped cream. Spread over cooled crust.

Final Layers:
1 large package instant chocolate pudding
1 large package instant vanilla pudding
*pudding flavors can be changed

Prepare one box of pudding per the directions. Spread over cream cheese layer. Chill for 5 mins in fridge. Prepare second box of pudding per box directions and spread over first pudding layer. Chill for 10-15 mins in fridge until firmly set. Spread 8 oz Cool Whip or whipped cream as the final layer. Chill for another 10-15 mins and then serve and enjoy!
