  1. Make oreo truffles -- basically crumbled oreos and cream cheese rolled into balls. A search on Home Cooking will pull up a recipe with the correct proportions.

    Or, crush and press into a pie plate and then put a cream or ice cream type pie in it

      And that ends this thread...Oreo Truffles!!! Yum!

        I've never made the truffles, but it was the first thing I thought of because they sound easy (and I'm all about easy) and they involve cookies (I care very deeply about cookies)...

        If nothing else, crumble them up mix into softened vanilla ice cream, re-freeze... invite one good friend over!

      2. Refrigerating soggy cookies usually hardens them up - use a sealed airtight container and keep them in the fridge until just before eating.

          1. Crush or make crumbs in the food processor, then either use for pie crust or as add-in/mix-in to ice cream. You can also crush them and put them in the freezer until you figure out what you want.

            1. Zip Lock a few and throw them in the freezer...See if you like that!
