For those of you that don't know a lush is a layered dessert. My husbands loves cherry choclates
so for Valentines Day I decided to make him this... He must have liked it cuz I got one peice out
of the 9x13 pan!
So let's get started..
First thing I did was bring the recipe up on my ipad mini. This thing has a ton of uses... okay mostly I look at pintrest & etsy, and facebook and play Disney tsum tsum & frozen freefall...
First Layer1 cup all-purpose flour
½ cup crushed nuts (I like pecans)
¼ cup sugar
½ cup butter, melted
Second Layer1 21 oz. can cherry pie filling
Third Layer8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup Cool Whip from 8 oz container
Fourth Layer2 (3.4 oz) packages of chocolate instant pudding
3 cups milk
Fifth LayerRemaining Cool Whip from 8 oz container
½ cup chocolate shavings or chocolate jimmies
First LayerPreheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine ingredients and press into a 9x13 baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes. Cool.
Third LayerBeat cream cheese in a mixer until light and fluffy. Add in Cool Whip. Gradually add powdered sugar and mix until thoroughly combined. Spread on cool crust.
Fourth LayerCombine pudding mix and milk and prepare according to package instructions. Spread over second layer.
Fifth LayerTop third layer with remaining Cool Whip. Sprinkle on chocolate shavings or chocolate jimmies. Keep refrigerated until serving.(note:I put mine into the freezer for a little bit to harden up so you could cut it without it being a gloppy mess)
