1 tub of Cool Whip-whipped topping
1 package of Mint Oreo cookies
3/4 cup of milk (any fat percentage, soy or almond will work too)
And a topping of your choice. In this demo I used cherries. You could use crumbled oreo’s, nuts, sprinkles, etc. You could also pour some chocolate or caramel syrup on top!! I think I just gained 5 pounds, typing that, LOL!!
In this demo I used a 10.5″, round pie dish. If you want to double the recipe, use a 9.5″ x 13″ dish.
Use half the package for the bottom layer. Dunk each cookie into milk, place in dish.
Use half of the tub of whipped cream, spread over soaked cookies.
Add the remaining package as the top layer. Spread again with that whipped cream we all love!
Add your topping of choice. Voila!! Done!
Refrigerate at least one hour before serving. You can also make this the day before!!

From the Test Kitchen* •Place lemon drops in a heavy re sealable plastic bag. Use a meat mallet or a rolling pin to coarsely crush the lemon drops. Transfer coarsely crushed lemon drops to a food processor. Cover and process until finely crushed.
