  • 1 box 3.4 oz/96g vanilla instant pudding
  • 1 1/2 cups 266ml nonfat milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 25 Golden Oreos or another vanilla flavored cookie/graham cracker
  • 2 tablespoons 28g unsalted butter, melted
  • 12 ounces 510g Cool Whip Topping (see note about using fresh whipped cream)
  • 1 pound fresh strawberries hulled and sliced and patted dry


  • Whisk pudding, milk, and vanilla in a medium sized bowl. Let it sit while you prepare the crust.
  • Crush the cookies in a large gallon sized ziploc bag using a rolling pin. Reserve 1/2 cup of the cookie crumbs. Place the 2 tablespoons melted butter in the bag and press with your hands to work the butter through the remaining cookie crumbs. Pour crumbs into a 9” square baking dish. The crust won’t be solid, it’ll stay crumbly.
  • Fold 8 ounces of the whipped topping into the pudding. Place half the pudding mixture on top of the crust. Place the strawberries in a single layer over the pudding. Spread remaining pudding mix over the top of the berries. Top with more whipped topping and sprinkle the remaining cookies over the top.
  • Chill for at least 4 hours before serving.
