Aunt Helen’s Vintage Robert Redford Dessert – A Romantic Classic

I had never in my life heard of Robert Redford dessert until I stumbled upon this recipe.

Wow! Where have I been hiding? Apparently, this chilled dessert is one of the best of its kind. I actually just made this yummy stuff this morning and it is in the refrigerator chilling right now as I type this. I’ll admit, I taste tested a little bit before I was supposed to because, you know, it’s supposed to chill and all. Well, whatever, it was ding dang delicious!

When it comes to chilled desserts, Robert Redford Dessert is always a winner at family dinner or social gatherings. A pecan crust is topped with a cream cheese layer, then a layer of chocolate pudding, and topped off with whipped cream.

This layered dessert recipe will go over so well, it will be as if Robert Redford himself walked into the party! Nobody will be able to resist the tempting layers in this beautiful make-ahead dessert. -Recipe Lion




Quick Tip: Make note that if you are making pudding from scratch, that step can, and should, be done ahead of time – even up to 2 days ahead – so the pudding has time to cool completely. If homemade pudding isn’t your thing, you can substitute 2 small packages of instant pudding mixed with 4 cups of milk.
