Blooming Oreo Dessert

My dear grandma passed away a year and a half ago. This was one of her recipes that she always made for family gatherings. She was an amazing cook and wonderful person. I only hope to be half the person that she was. I have included her 9×13″pan version and my fun potted version for you to enjoy.


9×13″ pan version:
1 pkg Oreo cookies, crushed
1/2 c. butter, melted
1 pkg. instant vanilla pudding
2 c. milk
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 c. powdered sugar
1 carton Cool Whip


Mix Oreos and butter. Press all but 1/2 cup into bottom of 9×13” pan with fork to form crust. Combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, and ½ of Cool Whip, pour into pan over Oreo crust. Combine pudding and milk, pour over cheese mixture. Refrigerate for 15 minutes. Cover with remaining Cool Whip. Sprinkle with remaining crushed Oreos. Refrigerate until served.

9 plastic flower pots version:
Mix ingredients as noted above in pan version, leaving out the butter. Layer into plastic pots evenly in this order – Oreos, cream cheese mixture, Cool Whip, pudding, more Cool Whip, Oreos. Top with fake flowers for decoration.
