We think one blogger said it best: Even though she has no idea how this dessert got its name, she says that when she presented it to her family, it went over just as well as if Robert Redford himself had walked into the kitchen. Now that’s a glowing review.
Whatever your feelings about the actor, you’ll agree that this layered dessert is worth the name of any dreamboat once you find out what goes in it. The delicious, oh-so-satisfying combination starts off with a humble butter crust that’s studded with chunks of chopped nuts--and it only gets better from there.
A rich, gooey cheesecake layer comes next, and though you might be satisfied with a dessert that stopped there, this one just keeps loading on the indulgence. Silky smooth chocolate (or banana, depending on the recipe) pudding comes next, deepening the flavor, but lightening the texture so that you can enjoy a full slice without overloading your sweet tooth. A light, fluffy layer of Cool Whip and a dusting of a grated chocolate bar are the airy final touches that make the whole world stop the second you put a forkful of this heavenly treat in your mouth.
So pick your dream guy and name your version of the luscious layered confection after him. It doesn’t matter what you call it, as long as you cut yourself a big slice.
