Creamy Orange Dream Pie

Creamy Orange Dream Cake / Busy Mom's Helper
Adapted from Kraft Foods Busy Family Recipes

I have a confession: I don’t like many orange flavored things. Ice creams, popsicles, suckers, nothing really. Oranges themselves are just fine, but that’s it. My husband, on the other hand, doesn’t like chocolate, but loves orange treats. The chocoholic in me tends to make most things chocolaty, so I decided to be a nice wife and do a dessert just for him. Not only is it one of his new favorites, but the rest of my family at the party demanded the recipe!

80 Wafer cookies (like Nilla wafers), finely crushed
½ stick Butter, melted
2 cups Milk
2 pkg. (small) Vanilla instant pudding mix
8 oz. Whipped cream, thawed
2 cups Orange sherbet, softened

In a 13×9 pan, line foil with the ends extending over the sides of the pan.

Mix wafer crumbs and butter. Press firmly onto bottom of pan.

In medium bowl, mix pudding mixes and milk until well blended. Stir in half of the whipped cream. Spoon evenly over the crust. Place in refrigerator for 10 minutes.

Mix sherbet and remaining whipped cream until well blended. Spoon over pudding layer after done in the fridge.

Cover and freeze for at least 3 hours. Use the foil ends to remove the dessert from the pan before cutting to serve.

I bet this recipe could be altered for pretty much any flavor; it just depends on the ice cream. I’m eager to try it with chocolate or mixed berry. What would you try, and if you do try something, let us know how it turns out!
