LOOKING for: 'butterscotch spectacular'

This is a layered butterscotch pudding, and I will try to describe it: crushed pecan and butter crust, topped with cream cheese mixture, then pudding, then cool whip, then pecans. Anyone have it? A search online came up empty.

Ginger, that looks like what my mom used to make only hers was called Sin Dessert :) No coconut in hers, though. Mom used to vary the flavor of the pudding. My favorite was definitely chocolate.

Yes, it used to be popular & I remember lots of variations on it.
