2 c oreo cookies, crushed
6 Tbs melted margarine

combine crumbs and margarine; press onto bottom and 1 1/2 inches sides of 9 inch spring form pan or 9x13 pan.

1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/4 c cold water
3/4 c milk
1/2 c sugar
1 c heavy cream, whipped
1 1/4 c crushed oreo cookies

Soften gelatin in water; stir over low heat until dissolved. Combine cream cheese and sugar, mixing at medium speed on electric mixer until well blended. Chill until mixture is thickened but not set. Fold in whipped cream. Reserve 1 1/2 c cream cheese mixture.Pour remaining cream cheese over crust. Top with chopped cookies and reserved cream cheese mixture, chill until firm.
Makes 8 servings- this recipe is easily doubled for larger families or number of guests. You can make the doubled recipe int he same spring form or 9x13 pan. it will be just much thicker. Slice the same amount as original recipe.
