Sunday Boston Cream Pie

This is one of my favorite recipes of my Mom's.  As children we would get this every year on my Dad's birthday because it was his favorite.  Well now I have started making it on Sunday for my Husband because he loves it so much.  (He probably wishes I wouldn't make it so he wouldn't have to run those extra miles every night to keep it from staying on his cute little body.)  It really is so delicious, so easy, and nothing like what you're thinking!  I can't wait for you to try this and fall in love like we have! (Oh and the picture will be coming.  I just have to take come this Sunday when I make it.)

For the Crust
1 Cup Flour
1 cube Butter

For the Filling
1 small pkg. Instant Vanilla Pudding
8 oz. Cream Cheese
1 8oz. carton Cool Whip divided
1 cup Powdered Sugar
2 small pkgs. Instant Chocolate pudding
3 cups Milk

For the Crust
Mix ingredients with hands and press into a 9x13 greased baking dish.  You want it to be as thin as possible.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.  Let cool completely.  While cooling make your pie filling.

For the Filling
Mix 1 small pkg. instant vanilla pudding according to it's pkg. instructions.  Add it to 8oz. softened cream cheese, 1 cup Cool Whip, and 1 cup powdered Sugar.  Spread this mixture over cooled crust.

Mix 2 small pkgs. instant chocolate pudding with 3 cups milk, until thick.  Then spread that on top of the vanilla layer.  Spread the remaining Cool Whip on top of the chocolate and sprinkle on crushed nuts of your choice or chocolate shavings  :)
