The name itself is hilarious for a dessert, and hundreds of you have commented on here telling me all the other names that this pudding dessert goes by. A long time ago, before I was married, my friend came over on a weekend and made this dessert for me. I had no idea what it was, but she promised me I was going to love it so we made it. We did not come up with the name, that is the name that it was known to her and her mom had been making it for her for as long as she could remember.

Sex-In-A-Pan Recipe | Allrecipes
Extremely popular recipe in Vancouver, BC. I have no idea where it originated or who named it, but it certainly is sinfully rich and delicious. Place margarine, flour, and white sugar into a bowl, and cut with a pastry cutter until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Press the mixture into a 10xinch square baking dish, and bake in the preheated oven until the crust is lightly browned, about 25 minutes. Let the crust cool. Place the cream cheese and confectioners' sugar into a mixing bowl, and beat with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy.
Sex in a Pan: Robert Redford Dessert
I have made it with Cool Whip and tried it made with whipping cream. I favour the Cool Whip to save the calories. Both are wonderful. My grandson used to call this Love in a Pan
If you grew up in the 70s, chances are you've seen this dessert at parties or at home when your family was hosting dinners. Perhaps you had the chance to make it yourself? Known by many names, most including the name of heartthrob Robert Redford, this layered dessert is rich, creamy, and unctuous, but mainly super easy to put together.
