  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees F). In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, 1/2 cup pecans and melted butter or margarine. Press into the bottom of a 9×13 inch baking dish. Bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven, then chill until cold.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream cheese and confectioners’ sugar until smooth. Stir in the whipped topping. Drop spoonfuls onto the chilled crust, and spread evenly. Return to the refrigerator while you prepare the next layer.

  4. Spread remaining whipped topping over the top, and garnish with chopped pecans.
