LEMON LAYER DESSERT--Joan Sorensen gave me this recipe years and years ago. I have yet to find a lemon dessert as good.

When this dessert first came out about twenty-five years ago Robert Redford said it was his favorite. That Robert, he's a smart man.

1 cup flour
1 square butter
½ cup nuts
Mix together. Press in 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cool

Layer One:
1 (8 ounce) pkg. cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup cool whip (from an 8 ounce tub.)
Mix together and spread on top of cooled crust.

Layer Two:
Mix 2 small pkg. lemon pudding (instant) with 3 cups milk.
Put on top of cream cheese layer.

Layer three: Put remaining whipped topping on the top. Keep in the refrigerator until served.

You can use chocolate pudding in place of lemon pudding. Put chocolate shavings on top of the cool whip. Joan says the chocolate is good but nothing like the lemon.
