Recipe Tips:

  • Crushing Oreos – Crush Oreos in a food processor to get that fine crumb texture. If you do not have a food processor, place Oreos in a ziplock bag and crush with a rolling pin.
  • Freeze Layers – As you are layering the mixture into the baking dish, make sure to freeze. This allows the layers to set to create a delicious dessert lasagna and prevents it from being mushy.
  • Cream Cheese – Before combining the cream cheese mixture make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature. This creates a smooth and creamy texture.
