Cookies and Cream Cheescake

Soooo, someone posted this little beauty on Facebook! I’ve not tried it yet but boy do I plan to!

Since it was just an image I’m going to post it all out here and then I’ll come back and share a picture of it after I’ve created it.

Now this looks more like a parfait kind of layout so there’s no reason (if you don’t want that many layers) why you couldn’t just do it in pie form with the crust being the crushed Oreo’s on the bottom or buy a pre-formed cookie crust and make the filling for the middle. Then the crushed topping and whipped cream and Bob’s your uncle – you’re all set.
