    Thanks pumba..looks like I found an easy desert for our reunion next month. I really wanted to find one with coconut, but different than the usual stuff.

    Just made this for the runion. I could not find lemon pudding but did find orange. I also decided to use crushed pineapple instead of the fruit coctail. The topping seemed to be to little so I doubled the brown sugar and nuts(used sliced almonds). It was wonderful.

    I always put my own spin on recipes. I have even tried to make myself follow them to the T before but I always end up doing something a little different.

    This sounds yummy, but why is it an ugly duckling?

    How do you think it would turn out if I used a bottle of cherries instead of the fruit cocktail, and whirrl them up in the processor, and use coconut pudding instead of the lemon?

    Just an idea, my son is so into coconut and cherries lately, thought I might give it a try?

    :D Thanks

    Hi everyone... I just wanted to let you know that I made this for a little party we had last weekend. I used pineapple and butterscotch pudding. It was such a hit, I can't even tell you. I gave out the recipe to 3 people.

    But one question...the "icing" I made was more like a glaze. Is it supposed to set up?

    thanks again Pumba...this stuff is great!

    :)

    the butter scotch sounds wonderful. I've considered the next time using one small can pineapple and one can mandrian orange. My topping didn't thicken either. I don't think it is suppose to.
