Ingredients

  • 1 pouch (17.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
  • Butter and egg called for on cookie mix pouch for drop cookies
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

  • 4
    In another medium bowl, beat dry pudding mix and milk with whisk about 2 minutes or until thick. Spread over cream cheese mixture. Spread remaining whipped topping over pudding layer. Cover and refrigerate 4 hours.

    When ready to serve, place 6 reserved cookies into quart-size resealable food-storage plastic bag. Seal bag; coarsely crush cookies with rolling pin. Sprinkle on top. Cut into 6 rows by 4 rows. Cover and refrigerate any remaining pieces.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    To quickly soften cream cheese, remove from wrapper, and place on microwave plate; microwave uncovered on High about 15 seconds or just until softened.
  • tip 2
    1 medium lemon yields about 3 tablespoons juice and 2 to 3 teaspoons grated lemon peel.
