  • Crust

  • 1 12 cups crushed cream-filled chocolate sandwich cookies (15 to 19 cookies)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened

  • 3 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened

Great recipe, after tasting the filling while mixing I decided to add in an extra cup of mashed banana making it 1-1/2 cups, and also increased the sugar slightly, we prefer a sweeter taste, I baked it in a water bath and it baked out lovely, this is one I will make again, thanks for sharing Bobbie!...Kitten:)
