Another one taken from a Kraft magazine. The description in the magazine reads ' Cool, creamy and incredibly easy! This frozen fruity treat hits the spot on sunny days.' Sounds good to me! :o)

I just made this dessert from a Kraft calendar and looked it up on Food.com just to say that the recipe is really skimpy on the amount of oreos that need to be crushed. I tried using 12 as it suggests and it only covered half of the 9x9 pan. I had to go with double the oreos and butter in order to get a crust to cover the pan. That said... once I did that everything else worked out well and it tasted good! My family liked it! One other thing I added was one drop of green food coloring because the limeade gave it a yellowish color and I thought it should look more green.
- 12 Oreo cookies, crushed
- 1⁄4 cup butter, melted
- 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
- 12 ounces frozen limeade concentrate, thawed
- 8 ounces whipped topping
