Recipe Corner: Oreo Cookie Cake

Summer is the perfect time for cold frozen treats. It is also a good time to let the kids help cook/bake. If they get messy, you can just take them outside and hose them off! This yummy recipe is one that kids can easily help with because no stove or oven is needed. Our favorite store bought cookie is Oreo’s, but feel free to experiment with other types of cookies. And don’t forget to contact me if you are interested in having your blog and your yummy recipe featured in a Fabulous Food Friday Post. Whether you bake it, sauté it, or just microwave it, send it in! Share your yummy food and you may find yourself with new visitors. Please email me directly if you are interested.

Ingredients

• 1 package of Oreo cookies (you may have leftovers)
• 1/4 cup margarine, melted
• 1 cup hot fudge topping
• 2 quarts vanilla ice cream
• 1 cup whipped cream
• 12 cherries


Directions
1. Crush half the cookies (about 20) to make crumbs. Combine crumbs with melted margarine and press into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan or pie plate. Stand remaining cookies around edge of pan. Spread 3/4 cup fudge topping over crust. Freeze 15 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, soften 1 quart of ice cream in microwave or on countertop. After crust has chilled, spread softened ice cream over fudge layer. Freeze 30 minutes.
3. Scoop remaining quart of ice cream into balls and arrange over spread ice cream layer. Freeze until firm, 4 hours or overnight. To serve, garnish with remainder of fudge topping, whipped cream and cherries.

I'd stick with the Oreos for it too. Nobody can duplicate their particular flavor!
