Luscious Orange Creamsicle Cookie Crust Pie Recipe
a General Mills Recipe

Check out this huge selection of Betty Crocker Cookbooks!

Cookie Base

1 pouch (17.5 oz) Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
Butter and egg called for on cookie mix pouch for drop cookies
1/3 cup butter, melted
2 boxes (3 oz each) Jell-O orange-flavored gelatin
1/3 cup boiling water
2 boxes (3.4 oz each) Jell-O vanilla-flavor instant pudding & pie filling mix
2 1/2 cups cold milk
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 container (12 oz) Cool Whip frozen whipped topping, thawed
Decoration (optional)
1/2 cup canned mandarin orange segments, drained (see my tips)

See my Darlene’s Concoctions videos here!

1:  Heat oven to 375°F. Make and bake drop cookies as directed on pouch. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

2:  In food processor, process half of the cookies to coarse crumbs. Remove to medium bowl. Continue to process remaining cookies to coarse crumbs; add to bowl. Stir in melted butter until well blended. In ungreased 13×9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish, press cookie crumb mixture firmly in bottom. Set aside.

3:  In small bowl, place gelatin, and add boiling water; beat with whisk until blended. Stir occasionally about 2 minutes or until mostly dissolved. In medium bowl, beat dry pudding mixes and milk with whisk about 2 minutes or until thick. Stir in dissolved gelatin. Let stand 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

4:  In large bowl, beat cream cheese and powdered sugar with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth, scraping down side of bowl frequently. Beat in 2 cups of the whipped topping. Spread over cookie crust.

5:  Pour pudding mixture over cream cheese layer; spread evenly over top. Drop remaining whipped topping by spoonfuls over pudding layer; carefully spread until even. Refrigerate 5 hours.

6: When ready to serve, sprinkle orange segments on top (optional). Cut into 6 rows by 3 rows. Cover and refrigerate any remaining pieces.

Darlene’s Tips:  You could pretty much do this with store-bought cookies. Just process them to crumbs, add the butter and press into the pan. Soft cookies might work better and might not even need the butter to make the crumbs stick. Add chopped nuts to the crust if you want. Instead of decorating with canned mandarin segments, you can use fresh. Or top with candy orange slices, which happens to be one of my mother’s favorite candies (you see me buy those often at walmart). You can experiment with different flavors of gelatin and pudding mixes.
