See ingredients, but does contain dairy, and sugar.
1 large pkg. Double Stuff Oreos (you can use regular as well-depends on your preference)
1 stick soft butter
1 pkg. cream cheese
1 cup conf.(powdered) sugar
2 - 8 oz. Extra creamy Cool Whip containers
1 large pkg. instant vanilla pudding to be prepared with milk (I prefer French vanilla-but again depends on your preference)
Directions (Steps, Oven Temperature, Time per Step)
You will need a deep 9 x 13 pan.
Smash all the cookies in a bag and set aside 1 cup.
Mix crumbs with soft butter
Spread crumbs/butter mix in the bottom of the pan. Recommend to use a greased spatula to push it down evenly out to the edges (forming the crust). Place in freezer.
Mix cream cheese and conf. sugar thoroughly, then add 1 cool whip tub and mix it all together.
Pull pan from freezer and layer this mix on top evenly, return to freezer.
Prepare pudding per instructions (Instant Pudding Used) and gently pour on top, spread to edges to form next layer. Place in freezer.
Take large spoonsful of the last cool whip tub and place on top, then smear gently to form a layer.
Sprinkle the 1 cup of cookie crumbs set aside on top evenly. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
Suggested Pairings (Optional)
Dinner first is recommend….. but also optional!
Recipe’s Story: Anecdote (Three to Five Sentences)
Who doesn’t love Oreos? If they say no, I either don’t trust them, or think they are lying. This dessert is a perfect mix of a cool refreshing treat that has sweet whipped cream and vanilla pudding while adding the secret ingredient (Oreos!). It’s a nice change of pace for a desert as this one is served cool for a nice hot day!
