Combine flour, 1/2 cup pecans and butter in a medium bowl and mix well. Press onto the bottom of an 11 x 8-inch baking dish. Bake until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Let stand to cool.
Place cream cheese in a medium bowl. Beat with an electric mixer set at medium speed until fluffy. Add confectioners’ sugar and beat until mixture is light and fluffy.
Add 1 cup whipped topping to cream cheese mixture and fold in gently. Spread over cooled crust.
Combine pudding mix and milk in a medium bowl. Beat until thickened. Spread on top of cream cheese layer. Top with the remaining whipped topping. Sprinkle with remaining pecans. Chill, covered, for 1 hour. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
1/2 tsp Cream of Tartar
4 Tbl (2 oz) Light Cream cheese (softened)
pinch Real Salt
1 packet Splenda (optional – don’t use for the Keto diet)
Position two racks in the middle of the oven. Heat to 350.
Prepare two baking sheets with parchment paper and cooking spray or Silpat liners. (They can leave a residue, even on the Silpat, so if you don’t like that, you will need to also grease your Silpat)
Separate the egg whites and yolks into two mixing bowls.
Add the cream of tartar to the egg whites and beat stiff with an electric mixer. They should stiffen after 3-5 minutes of beating. Do not over-beat.
Whisk the cream cheese, salt and Splenda if using into the yolks until smooth. Gently fold the yolk mixture into the whites. The batter should be fluffy.
Use a regular-sized ice cream scoop or 1/4 cup measure to spoon the batter onto the baking sheets. (A pretty good way to get the batter out of the cup and onto the baking sheet is with a small plastic spatula. That keeps the mess level down, and you can use the spatula to spread and shape them into discs.)
Place 6 mounds of batter on each sheet so they have room to spread. Bake 20-22 minutes, switching racks halfway through.
Let the bread cool completely before removing from the baking sheets.
