I found this recipe in the Summer 2005 Kraft Kitchens magazine and am posting it here for safe keeping. It looks like a great summer dessert! Cook time includes freezing time.

This is a really creamy and tasty dessert. My family made this for the Fourth of July and I was going to post it but you beat me too it :D It really is perfect for the summer. We substituted graham cracker crumbs for the cookies. One suggestion is to let it sit out and get a little soft before you serve it.
