Cookies & Cream Casserole :)

I haven't updated this site in ages, and for that I apologize. Things have been crazy busy lately. But summer is coming soon, so I'll be able to start posting weekly again.

Now, a dessert for you! It's yummy good. I hope everyone enjoys it. My version is vanilla cookies and cream. It tastes awesome, though I'm sure the actual Oreos would taste better.

What's Needed:
1/2 C. butter, melted (1 stick)
1 1-lb. package of Oreo cookies, crushed (or similar)
3 C. milk
2 4-serving-size packages instant vanilla pudding mix
1 8-oz. package cream cheese, softened
1 8-oz. container frozen Cool Whip, thawed (or similar)

1. In a large bowl, drizzle the melted butter over crushed cookies; toss to coat evenly. Set aside 1/2 cup of the crumb mixture. Sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture into an ungreased 9x13 inch baking pan. Set aside.

2. In amedium bowl, combine milk and dry pudding mix. Set aside.

3. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with an electric mixer on low to medium speed until smooth. Add milk-pudding mixture. Beat until combined. Fold in Cool Whip.

4. Pour the pudding mixture over the crumb mixture in pan. Sprinkle the reserved 1/2 C. crumb mixture over the pudding. Cover and chill for at least 8 hours or up to 24 hours.

Makes 12-14 servings.
