MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 12, 2014

my family ate this like crazy and there is only three of us! next time I will double the cream cheese layer (I like cream cheese). This time I mixed the puddings with the milk to soft-set but I folded in the cool whip--and used dry roasted peanuts in the crust. This quick, easy, and great. Definitely will make again (daughter already asked for me to make this week for her). keeper for sure
