This particular dessert is Daniel's favorite. I've become rather attached to it too.
Confession: when I make it, we eat the left overs for breakfast. :-/
1 regular package of vanilla pudding
8 oz cream cheese, softened
12 oz cool whip/ whipped cream (I always make my own whipped cream)
About 1 package of oreos
1/2 stick of butter, melted
Grab a brown paper bag and crush about half the package of those oreos to smithereens... or chop them in your food processor. Whichever floats your boat.
Spread them in the bottom of a pie pan, and pour the melted butter slowly over top. Press the cookies down firmly with a spatula to create the crust.
**You can skip this first step by purchasing an already made oreo crust**
Using an electric mixer (preferably, but not necessarily) mix the pudding package with as much milk as the recipe calls for. Add in the cream cheese and whipped cream and beat until smooth.
Add crumbled oreos of you'd like (and why wouldn't you like?)
Pour on top of crust.
Top with more oreos if you'd like (see above).
Chill several hours, til set. Then enjoy for breakfast, lunch or dinner! ;)
