Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir for 1 minute.
Remove from the heat; stir in butter and lemon peel. Gently stir in lemon juice. Refrigerate until cool.
In a bowl, combine flour and nuts.
Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press onto the bottom of a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
Bake at 350°F (180C) for 15-20 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
In a bowl, beat cream cheese and icing sugar until smooth; carefully spread over crust. Spread with cooled lemon mixture.
In another bowl, beat milk and pudding mixes on low for 2 minutes; beat in vanilla. Fold in half of the whipped topping. Spread over lemon layer.
