It’s hot y’all! When it’s hot like this, lots of people want to eat cool refreshing foods and desserts. This dessert would be perfect to serve for the upcoming 4th of July festivities. It’s great for pot luck dinners or just something to make for family and friends who stop by to visit on those warm days.

My family loves all kinds of sweets, so this is a never fail recipe for me to take to any family gathering. Cookies and Cream never lasts when it shows up for any gathering, so double the recipe and it should go a tad bit further.

Cookies and Cream

1 bag Oreos, crushed (I like double stuff Oreos)

8 ounce cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup butter

1 cup powdered sugar

3 cups milk

2 small boxes instant vanilla pudding

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

12 ounces Cool Whip

Cream together cream cheese, butter, vanilla and powdered sugar. In separate bowl, mix milk and pudding and chill until set. Fold in Cool Whip after pudding has set. Add cream cheese mixture, then layer with Oreos. Chill until ready to serve.

Bon appétit!!
