Butterscotch Pudding Torte Recipe

We wanted a butterscotch-flavored pudding dessert. After searching many cookbooks, I came up with this version. —Judith Kuehl, Merrill, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + chilling YIELD:15 servings


  • 1 package (16 ounces) cream-filled vanilla sandwich cookies, crushed
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 carton (12 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
  • 2-1/2 cups cold 2% milk
  • 2 packages (3.4 ounces each) instant butterscotch pudding mix


  • 1. Set aside 1 cup cookie crumbs for topping. In a small bowl, combine remaining cookie crumbs and butter. Press into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. dish. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Fold in 1-1/2 cups whipped topping. Spread over crust.
  • 2. In a small bowl, whisk milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes; let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set. Spoon over cream cheese layer. Top with remaining whipped topping. Sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Yield: 15 servings.

"This was delish! So easy to make. Just one question though. Did you use 2 small boxes of butterscotch pudding? I think the ounces are listed wrong on the recipe. It calls for 2 pkgs. 3.4 ounces each, this can't be right, can it?"

"This was unbelievably easy to make, and tasted fantastic! I made it for Mother's Day dinner, using fat free cream cheese, fat free Cool Whip, fat free milk, and sugar free pudding mix. It got lots of compliments. I am going to make it again this weekend, only using chocolate cookies and chocolate pudding mix."
