Watergate Lush Dessert
This Watergate Lush Dessert is a unique combination of flavors! Pistachio, pecans and pineapple combine to make a fluffy, no-bake treat!
- 1 (11 oz pkg) pecan shortbread cookies (such as Pecan Sandies) coarsely crushed
- 5 Tbsp butter melted
- 1 (3.4-3.9 oz) pkg instant pistachio pudding mix
- 1 cup milk
- 2/3 cup crushed pineapple well drained
- 1 (16 oz tub) Cool Whip thawed and divided
- 1 cup chopped pecans
Lightly grease an 8x8" square pan with cooking spray; set aside. In a large bowl, combine the coarse cookie crumbs and butter until moistened. Press evenly into the prepared pan and set aside.
Wipe out the bowl and add in the pistachio pudding mix and the milk. Whisk until thickened, about 2 minutes. Fold in the pineapple and 2 cups of the Cool Whip until combined and fluffy.
Spread the filling into the prepared pan in an even layer. Top with the remaining Cool Whip and the pecans.
Refrigerate for at least 6 hours, or overnight, until set. Cut into squares to serve.
