Last week we had friends over for dinner: I was in charge of the meal and they brought dessert, a fantastic arrangement in my humble opinion. Our friends bought a version of this delicious dessert from the grocery store and as soon as I took a bite I knew I needed to make this ASAP!
The best part is that this dessert is BEYOND easy to put together. Not only is it simple to put together, it will gone before you can say “Who wants dessert?”
It’s just that good.
Oreo Pudding Pie
- 1 package Oreo cookies, crushed
- 1 (5.86 ounce) package chocolate pudding mix
- 2 1/2 cups whole milk
- 1 (8 ounce) container cool whip, thawed
Directions: Place all of the cookies in a large Ziploc bag and crush them with your hands or a rolling pin. In a deep pie dish spread all but a handful of the crushed cookies, press down lightly. This is your crust. Next, mix the pudding powder with milk until completely combined. Before the pudding starts to set, pour it over the cookie crust. Refrigerate the pudding for at least 1 hour to allow it to set. Once the pudding has set spread the entire container of cool whip over the top. Lastly, sprinkle with the last of the crushed cookies. To serve, scoop a healthy sized portion into a bowl and enjoy.
Here is our cast of characters for this delightful dessert.
Seriously? Can this be any more simple?
Toss all of them cookies into a bag, now is a good time to get out all of your frustrations over how your toddler seems to turn his nose up at all of the healthy food that you so lovingly prepare for him.
All except this dessert of course…
I just used my hands to crush and smash and crunch my cookies. Feel free to use a rolling pin, a can of green beans, your son’s toy hammer… you know whatever is laying around in your kitchen.
You think I’m kidding.
These cookies were still kind of large but feel free to crush them even more if you want.
Spread most of the cookies into the bottom of your serving dish. Reserve a handful of crushed cookies for topping.
Now mix your box of pudding with 2 1/2 cups of whole milk. Don’t let it set up just yet, work kinda quickly.
Pour the pudding mixture evenly over the top of your cookie crust.
Chill the whole kit-and-caboodle for at least 1 hour to allow the pudding to set.
Oh, I can’t stand waiting! Lord give me strength…
Spread the whole container of cool whip over the top of the pudding. Don’t be shy my friends!
Last, but certainly not least, top with the last of the crushed cookies.
I don’t know what you’re having for dessert because I plan on eating the whole thing myself!
If you’re actually going to share this dessert, grab the biggest spoon you can find and dish it up to the hoard of hungry guests waiting outside of your kitchen.
It’s not much to look at but oh heaven help me it tastes soooo good.
If you’re looking for a quick and simple dessert for your family or a potluck, this dish will certainly be a winner.
