Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350°F.
Mix flour, granulated sugar and coffee granules in medium bowl until blended. Cut in butter with pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 2 Tbsp. nuts. Press onto bottom of 13x9-inch pan. Bake 12 to 15 min. or until lightly browned. Cool completely.
Beat cream cheese and powdered sugar with whisk until blended. Gently stir in 1 cup COOL WHIP. Spread evenly over crust.
Beat pudding mixes, milk and liqueur in large bowl with whisk 2 min. Pour over cream cheese layer in pan. Let stand 5 min. Spread with remaining COOL WHIP; sprinkle with remaining nuts. Refrigerate 1 hour or until ready to serve.
Prepare as directed, omitting the Irish cream liqueur.
Prepare as directed, substituting pistachios for walnuts. Be sure to use the natural colored pistachios, not the red-dyed nuts.
For easy cleanup, line baking pan with foil using this easy method. Turn pan upside down and fit a piece of foil over top of pan, smoothing corners as needed. Remove foil. When you turn the pan over, the foil fits perfectly inside the pan.
