I run a small catering business from my home and created this recipe one day while experimenting and since then it has been a huge hit at any and every occassion. I promise you will not regret it.
1 Cup Flour
2 Teaspoon Sugar
1/4 Cup Margarine (Melted)
3/4 Cup Chopped Walnuts
1 Package (8oz) Low Fat Philadelphia Cream Cheese
1/2 Contents of Large (16 oz) Container  Fat free Cool Whip (store balance in refrigerator for later use)
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/4 Teaspoon Vanilla
2 Boxes Sugar Free Pistachio Instant  Pudding
2 1/2 Cups Cold Milk (1 or 2%)
1/2 Cup Chopped Walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix well, all ingredients of part one (flour, sugar, melted margarine, and chopped walnuts)and press into the bottom of 9 x 12 slightly buttered glass pan.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and let cool of at least 30 minutes.

Combine cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/2 container of cool whip and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla in mixing bowl and beat well on medium speed with hand mixer for aboutthree minutes, scraping bowl occassionally; untill well blended and mixture is light and creamy.

Not really an "original"
I too have been making this recipe for over 25 years. I got it from a co-worker who got it from his mother (and she'd been making it for many years). I agree, however, that it's a favorite anytime, anywhere. I've also made it using chocolate pudding, which was delicious as well.
