Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Grease 15x10x1-inch pan. In 2 1/2-quart saucepan, heat butter and water to rolling boil. Stir in flour; reduce heat to low. Stir vigorously about 1 minute or until mixture forms a ball; remove from heat. Beat in eggs all at once; continue beating until smooth. Spread dough in pan.
  • 2
    Bake about 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. (Crust will be puffy and uneven.)
  • 3
    In large bowl, beat cream cheese and 1/4 cup of the milk with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Add remaining milk and the pudding mix (dry). Beat about 2 minutes or until smooth and slightly thickened; immediately spread over crust. Spread with whipped topping.
  • 4
    Refrigerate uncovered at least 1 hour but no longer than 24 hours. Just before serving, drizzle with chocolate syrup and sprinkle with nuts. For servings, cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Store in refrigerator.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Looking for another great flavor combo? Use banana cream pudding and pie filling mix for the pistachio. Add sliced bananas just before serving. Mmm!
  • tip 2
    Toast the pistachio nuts for richer flavor. Bake uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in 350°F oven about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Or cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
