Can someone tell me do you first cook the pudding or not?

Hi Kathleen, you do not need to cook the pudding first. Happy baking!

This is a simple and fantastic recipe! As another reviewer had, I opted to use a pre-made Oreo Cookie crust to save some time. When I'm feeling more adventurous, I'll definitely try out the recommended crust. I also reduced the calories by using Jello's Fat-Free, Sugar-Free Instant Pistachio pudding and Eddy's Slow-Churned French Vanilla ice cream. Absolutely delicious and not a health-buster! Definitely going to be a go-to dessert this summer. Thanks, L'OL!
