Lemon Lush

I had my first taste of Lemon Lush at a graduation party the beginning of summer and of course I had to ask for the recipe!  This light and refreshing dessert is perfect for any summer celebration.  The crunchy cookie crust, combined with the sweetened cream cheese and lemon layer is so yummy!  You can substitute the lemon pudding for your favorite flavor.  I think I'm going to try chocolate next.  Enjoy :)

Lemon Lush
adapted from a friends mom's recipe

1/2 pkg. Pecan Shortbread Cookies, crushed
3 T butter, melted

Cream Cheese Layer:
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 cup confectioners sugar
1 cup cool whip

Pudding Layer:
2 small packages of Instant Lemon Pudding
3 cups milk (I used 2%)

Top Layer:
Cool Whip

Mix crushed cookies and butter and press into an 8 x 11 glass Pyrex baking pan.
Bake for 10 minutes in a 350 degree oven.  Cool.
While the crust is cooling, mix softened cream cheese with the confectioners sugar.  Fold in the cup of cool whip.  Spread over cooled crust and refrigerate for 30 minutes. 
Mix lemon pudding with 3 cups of milk and spread over cream cheese layer.  I then refrigerate this layer for at least another 30 minutes before spreading the cool whip on top.
