I’m posting a day earlier this week because I was invited to participate in a Foodie Fake Out!  Stephanie from Back for Seconds asked a few of us bloggers to come up with a recipe that looks like something else.  I was so excited because I love stuff like this…especially those little hamburgers that are made out of cookies 🙂  I decided to make Sand Dessert…a dessert that looks like sand, however it’s made with cookies, cream cheese, pudding and cool whip!  It’s a snap to put together since it doesn’t need to bake and it makes quite an impression at parties...I hope you enjoy!


Ingredients are as follows:
1 (18-20 oz.) vanilla creme sandwich cookies
2 1/2 C milk
2 (3.4 oz.) packages vanilla instant pudding
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 C powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
8 ounces cool whip 
1 new (7 inch) plastic pail (optional) 
Grind up the cookies; set aside.
Whisk together the milk and pudding; set aside.
Cream together the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla.
Mix in the cool whip.
Fold in the pudding.
Place a layer of cookie crumbs in the bottom of the pail.
Add a layer of the pudding/cream cheese/cool whip mixture.
Continue to repeat the layers with the remaining ingredients.  Refrigerate until served.  Add some cute decorations if you’d like.
Spoon some out and enjoy!
