    ReadyForThe80's's Note:

    I like this recipe because it's a good way to use up packages of Maria cookies that would otherwise be wasted. I have made this twice so far with the cookie-crumb bottom. The first time I made it following the recipe, and the second time I added a couple tablespoons of cocoa to the cream+milk mixture and crumbed the packages of cookies and made a paste with the coffee and mixed it into the cream+milk mixture which I find looks better than the original preparation. My man said he likes the cocoa version better. I find this cake has a subtle taste, predominantly tasting like Maria cookies. I don't even notice any coffee flavor.
