Refreshing Vanilla Pudding Dessert



1 cup water

1/2 cup butter

1/4 tsp. salt

1 cup all-purpose flour

4 large eggs


1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened

2 1/2 cups cold milk

2 pkg. (3.4 oz. each) instant vanilla pudding mix


1 carton (8 oz.) frozen whipped topping, thawed

Chocolate syrup


In a saucepan over medium heat, bring the water, butter and salt to a boil. Add the flour all at once and stir until a smooth ball forms.
Continue beating until the mixture is smooth and shiny. Remove from the heat; let stand for 5 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Pour into a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake at 400° until crust is puffed and golden brown, 28-30 minutes. Cool crust completely on a wire rack.

For the filling, in a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, milk and pudding mixes until smooth. Spread over the crust; refrigerate for 20 minutes.

Spread whipped topping over filling. Store in the refrigerator. Just before serving, drizzle with chocolate syrup.
