Apparently Zach Williams (Chain Breaker) is quite the connoisseur. Not only is he a devoted husband and father, singer, songwriter, worship leader, and campus director at his home church in Arkansas, we also caught "whiff" of his cooking skills.

Zach recently shared some of his favorite recipes with us we think you should try if you're planning on going to that Christmas party.

4 Layer Delight

"O Give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good: for His mercy endureth for ever." Psalm 107:1


Layer 1

1 stick oleo, softened

1 cup chopped pecans

1 1/2 cups flour

Mix together and spread into bottom of a 9 x 13 pan.

Bake 20 to 30 minutes at 350 until golden brown.

Cool completely.

Layer 2

1 (8 oz.) cream cheese

1 1/2 cups cool whip

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Mix together until smooth and spread over cooled crust.

Layer 3

1 large pkg. of instant chocolate pudding

3 cups milk

Prepare as directed and spread over cream cheese mixture


Layer 4

You can also make this with other pudding flavors, or substitute with blueberry pie filling for the pudding layer.
