I love the pudding, cream cheese, cool whip, crust and topping. I love it all! I used the seasonally available Pumpkin Jello Pudding but if you can’t find it just substitute it with vanilla pudding or butterscotch or whatever kind you like the best. This is a great dessert to serve at a holiday party or at a shower. I hope you like it as much as I did!
