I’m a huge fan of butterscotch pudding. The butterscotch layer gives this dessert most of its flavor, but it is complemented by the pecan crust and creamy cream cheese layer, plus the light and creamy whipped topping layer.

Sprinkle a few chopped pecans on top and you have the perfect summer dessert for butterscotch lovers. 🙂
