Not necessarily a good boat recipe, but divine enough to include for special occasions.  We have this at all holidays and it is wonderful.  It's my favorite dessert.



  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 stick butter
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 8 oz. Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • 8 oz. Cool Whip
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 package chocolate pudding
  • 1 package vanilla pudding
  • Milk for pudding mixes

Mix together flour, butter & pecans.  Spread like a pie crust in buttered pan.

Mix together cream cheese, cool whip & powdered sugar.  Spread 1/2 of mixture on top of crust. 

Make puddings per instructions on package.  Spread chocolate pudding next, then vanilla pudding.  Spread remainder of the cream cheese mixture.
