Mmm, mmm, mmm!!! By far, dessert is my favorite thing to make in the kitchen! Probably because it’s my favorite thing to eat :) This recipe came from Stef, who recently let Michelle and I sample a bit of at our last girls get-together! Let me tell you, that little taste tester left my mouth watering for more!!! The only trouble I found in making this, was keeping my grubby hands away from the Oreo’s long enough to have some left for the crust. I made a few alterations, by adding an extra package of cream cheese and changing the crust a bit. This is a keeper folks, a real keeper.

1 pkg. Oreo cookies
2 (8 oz) cream cheese
2 (8 oz) cartons of cool whip
1 c. powdered sugar
2 1/4 c. cold milk
1 large pkg instant vanilla pudding
3/4 c. butter, melted

Grind package of Oreo cookies and set aside 1/2 c. Mix together melted butter and remaining cookie crumbs and pat into the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish/cake pan. Refrigerate 1 hour. Beat together cream cheese, powdered sugar, and one (8 oz) container of cool whip. Pour mixture over refrigerated Oreo cookie crust. Mix pudding and milk together according to the directions on package. Pour pudding over the cream cheese mixture. Top with the other (8 oz) container of cool whip. Sprinkle remaining cookie crumbs over top, chill for 1 hour before serving.

    Von, I made this and it was really good! Kinda funny story though…I had Benton’s friend over for dinner last night and when Benton saw it, he said what’s in that? And I was telling him and then he went off about how he hates pudding…blah blah blah….asking me how did you not know that I hate pudding? His friend, Adam said just give it a try…you might like it? So Benton did and he smiled! He said he really liked it and honestly couldn’t taste the pudding. Thank goodness his friend was over, so he could push him into trying it.

      Good story, I’m glad you shared it with me! I’m also glad Benton gave it a shot – maybe he thinks he doesn’t like pudding, but he really does! This recipe is one of my favs!
