I was disappointed. The batter for the bottom layer baked up with NO flavor whatsoever. I believe it is because the aspartame in the pudding mix was altered by the heat of baking. Also could not taste the vanilla flavor, although I could smell it while it baked. With some alterations this recipe would be good.
The cream cheese layer tasted really good.
In the recipe, is the butter supposed to be melted or left solid when beaten with the milk and egg? I just used it at room temp.

the amounts listed in the recipe seemed a bit odd, and i couldn't find any sugar-free cook n server pudding, so I used regular cook & serve. I made cuts in other places, though, and the recipe still came out great. Instead of real butter, i used Smart Balance 50/50 blend for baking, and i replaced the sugar in the cream cheese topping with Splenda for baking. The dessert was yummy and would probably be good with just about any fruit, apples, pears, mixed berries or peaches.
