Questions & Replies

  1. Do I remove cream filling from the Oreo cookies for the crust
  2. On the sour cream frosting, do you put it back in the oven?


  1. We used a bit extra chocolate for the marble part (I'd say about double), so it required an overnight cooling, but yum!!! It was nice and creamy and wonderful, adding this one to the cookbook!
  2. I doubled the crust and placed fresh strawberries on top after cooled...delicious!!!
