I found this while going through my old Taste of Homes magazines. I love lemon cookies and this looked easy so I figured I could make it for Christmas Eve dinner.
3 1/2 cups cold milk
2 (3 1/2 ounce) packages instant lemon pudding
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
12 ounces Cool Whip, thawed, divided
1 (12 -14 ounce) packages lemon cream-filled sandwich cookies, crushed
1. Whisk milk and pudding for 2 minutes. Let stand 2 minutes or till soft-set.
2. In another bowl, beat cream cheese, butter, and sugar till smooth. Gradually stir in pudding till blended.
3. Set aside 1/4 cup each of Cool Whip and cookies for garnish. Fold remaining Cool Whip into pudding mixture.
4. Place half remaining cookies in 3 quart glass bowl; top with half the pudding. Repeat. Garnish with reserved Cool Whip and cookies. Refrigerate till serving.
This reminds me of banana pudding with Nilla wafers, but it's lemon pudding with lemon cookies. I thought it was tasty. Michael thought it was lacking fruit, so he added strawberries and thought it was great.
