This is a favorite dessert around here.
It's one of those recipes that is super easy, but has a great "Wow" factor.
Makes an elegant dessert for Bridal or Baby Showers or other special events.
My recipe is a combination of 2 similar recipes, one from my recipe guru, Sharla; and one from Amy.
1 1/2 cubes margarine or butter
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups water
6 large eggs
In a medium saucepan, combine margarine and water and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and mix in flour. Allow mixture to cool in pan for 10 minutes. In a separate bowl, whip 6 eggs until well blended. Pour eggs over mixture in saucepan. Use a hand mixer to combine mixture until it has a smooth consistency and appears glossy. Spread into a greased jelly roll pan (12x17) with a rubber spatula. Bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Cool completely. (I make the crust the night before)
Crust will puff up, but flattens as it cools.
8 oz. package cream cheese
3 TBS. milk
2 small packages vanilla instant pudding mix
3 cups milk
16 oz carton Cool Whip
Beat cream cheese and 3 TBS milk until smooth.
Beat vanilla instant pudding mix with 3 cups of milk. When thick, mix with cream cheese mixture.
Fold in Cool Whip.
Spread on cooled crust, leaving a little of the edge showing.
Drizzle with chocolate syrup.
Refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving.
Cut into squares to serve.
Makes about 24 large squares
