  1. Whisk French vanilla pudding mix with milk in a large bowl until softly set, about 2 minutes. Pudding will thicken as it stands. Cream confectioners' sugar, cream cheese, and butter in a separate bowl until smooth and creamy. Stir cream cheese mixture into pudding until thoroughly combined; gently fold frozen whipped topping into the mixture.
  2. Place half the cookie crumbs into the bottom of an 9x12-inch dish; retain remaining crumbs for topping. Spread the filling over the layer of cookie crumbs and top with remaining crumbs, covering completely. Chill for at least 30 minutes.

We enjoyed this! It was nice to have a variation of this dessert that isn't all chocolate. I will make this again for the kids.

Great recipe !!!

I've made this recipe several times over the years. But last night, I doubled the recipe for a work function and was confident that there would be a little left over to bring home (because the dish was HUGE). I thought wrong! These people scraped the bottom of the pan and there was NOTHING left! They absolutely loved it!!!! I'm not sure I've ever had so many compliments over a recipe!!!! As it turns out, our local grocery store actually had French vanilla pudding in stock, which is rare, so I made it with the French vanilla pudding this time. But I've made it with regular vanilla pudding in the past and it has been just as good. Enjoy!!!!!

My family loved this. Used chocolate pudding instead of vanilla. And did a full pack of cookies. Delicious!

It was really easy to make! We substituted the French vanilla with chocolate for the kids and added warms to the top! Perfect to use different pudding flavors

I made this as a Thanksgiving desert and let's just say no one touched the pies ??. Everyone mobbed me for my recipe, it will definitely be a new holiday tradition in my house.
