Oreo Dessert

20140718-161826-58706962.jpg Well after about a week of not posting, I decided to come back with another recipe. This mother load of all desserts graced every family dinner event we ever had growing up. My grandma’s recipe, this Oreo Dessert was requested by all of us grandkids for special events. To this day, my mom will make this for me on my birthday. I knew I had to post it on my blog at some point because it is an essential piece of history on my side of the family.


Obviously, no pan of this made in my kitchen can ever rival that of my grandma’s, which must have contained crack. Or maybe just extra butter. Either way, mine just isn’t as good as hers. Nate and the boys never had the joy of trying Mary Lanning ‘s hallowed dessert, so they are perfectly content with mine. Thankfully.


This is the type of dessert that requires “evening out the edges” when eating out of the pan, which we often do. Once you start, it’s so hard to stop. So make sure you have lots of people to share it with, unless you are ok with gaining 10 pounds by eating the whole thing yourself.



1 1/2 pkg Oreos (not double stuffed)

2 sticks + 2Tbl of butter

8oz block of cream cheese

1 cup powdered sugar

1 container of Cool Whip

2 packages of instant vanilla pudding

3 cups milk

1 tsp vanilla

Crush Oreos. Reserve 1 cup for topping. Mix the rest with 1 stick + 2tbl butter. Press into bottom of 9×13 pan. Cream the rest of the butter and cream cheese together. Add powdered sugar and mix. Fold in cool whip. Set Aside. Mix vanilla pudding packets with milk and vanilla until desired texture. Fold into cream cheese mixture. Pour over Oreos in pan. Top with reserved Oreos. Chill until ready to serve.
