  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a medium bowl, combine the flour and butter using a pastry cutter until a ball forms. Press into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly golden. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
  3. In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar together until smooth and well blended. Spread evenly over the cooled crust. In another bowl, whisk together the lemon pudding mix and milk for 3 to 5 minutes. Spread over the cream cheese layer. Chill until set, then top with whipped topping.

OK-This recipe has such potential to be better than a five-with slight modifications. I must agree with the rest - the lemon pudding itself was fake tasting and I too had to add lemon juice and...

I subbed in 2-15oz cans of lemon pie filling for the lemon pudding and this was awesome. My Easter guests loved it-it's cool and refreshing.

This is a definite family request at our holiday get togethers and all our summer picnics! It tastes just like a cool & creamy version of lemon meringue pie, but better :) I add 2 tablespoons...

Oh baby! This was amazing! I used a Keebler Shortbread crust because I really didn't want to have the oven on when it's so hot, and this dessert was fabulous. I'm sure I'll experiment with diffe...

I prefer a graham cracker crust to lighten up this dessert. I also added 1/8 cup lemon juice to the lemon filling. My family enjoys tart desserts. This is great, thanks for sharing Mrs. Kelly Z!

Perfect for a summer day!! I also made it with banana pudding and put sliced bananas on the crust before adding the pudding. Also I cut all the ingredients in half and pout it into a 7x11 pan ...
