Cookies & (Irish)Cream Pie

Featuring Oreo® Baileys® Butter & Oreo® Toffee...

I truly cannot take credit for this idea. You know how when kids start carrying-on at the table & stuff just begins to snowball? Such was the case here -- I simply asked my fellas what comes to mind for cookies & cream. One said "Irish Cream?" and then it was all downhill after that.

We started by making the butter. Since we needed a full cup we tossed Oreo® sleeves into the blender and used a little help from Baileys® to create this magical spread.

Next we needed to make the toffee.
(I got this idea while perusing candy recipes, but actually used a 1946 "Joy of Cooking" for the toffee recipe.)

Here we used another 35 cookies for the base, plus maybe a half-dozen more broken up to fill in the holes... (I did melt a cup and a half of semi-sweet chocolate chips to spread over the cooling candy, but next time I'll just leave it with cookies & toffee.)

So, here's the complete dessert recipe:

Didn't hear one complaint from the fellas...

(of course, their mouths were too full of cookies & cream to speak...)

I, however, was saying "Oh, oh, ohhhhhhhhhhh!"

    1. It was, Wendy -- soooooooo yum! That slight Irish cream flavor came shining through. :)

  2. So many cookies! This sounds wonderful, especially with the toffee! Faith, Hope, Love, & Luck - Colleen

    1. Fortunately, Colleen, there are (ummmmmmm -- were...) a couple canning jars with leftover toffee!

  3. OOOHH!!! That sounds wonderful, and will have to try this sometime. I'm thinking it might be a fun 'cake' for me to make and bring to the Legion cake raffle I make a cake for every couple of weeks. hmmmmm

    1. Make sure you make plenty of cookie butter! I wish I had more, 'cause I want to twist apart the Oreos, scrape out that nasty white stuff & spread them with the Oreo butter. (Seems almost cannibalistic, doesn't it?) :D

  4. Oh my goodness. This looks so decadent!
