Parfait! Green Stuff

GreenStuff06bfLOHow fitting, after yesterday’s post, that this week’s Parfait! recipe is based on Jell-O pistachio pudding. Don’t get your hopes up, though, this is not the kickoff of Jell-O Fest Week; I still have some books to go through, and, hopefully, some recipe submissions to come from y’all before I can pull that off. I also need to con, ermm invite, some friends over to taste the results.

Besides, I am not certain this counts as a “Jell-O” recipe, because of the pudding. It does make for one fine dessert, though.

•2 boxes pistachio instant pudding
•2 (9 oz) containers Cool Whip
•1 qt. good vanilla ice cream, softened
•1-1/2 cup milk
•1 stick butter – melted
•50 Ritz or Hi Ho crackers

GreenStuff05bfLOCrush the crackers and reserve 1/2 cup. Combine the remaining crumbs with the melted butter and press down firmly in the bottom of an 11 x 13 glass baking pan.

Combine the pudding, one container of Cool Whip, the ice cream, and milk in a large mixer bowl. Mix together well – the whisk attachment, if you have one, works a treat – and pour the mixture over the crushed cracker crumb base.

Spread the remaining container of Cool Whip over all and sprinkle with the saved 1/2 cup of cracker crumbs. Cover and refrigerate for several hours or, more better, overnight.
