DIRT CAKES

The Green Thumbs did it! We planted our garden — all except two rows. We toasted the event with Dirt Cakes in Dixie Cups. Here’s the recipe:

DIRT CAKE

½ stick of butter or margarine, softened

1 8-ounce package of cream cheese

1 cup powdered sugar

3 ½ cups milk

2 packages (3 ½-oz. each) instant vanilla or chocolate pudding

12-ounce container frozen whipped topping, thawed

2 packages (20 ounces each) Oreo cookies, crushed in a food processor, not too fine

Cream butter, cream cheese and powdered sugar. In another bowl, mix milk, pudding and whipped topping. Combine mixtures. Begin layering cookies and pudding mixture, beginning and ending with cookies.

Serves 10 to 12

NOTE: We made the cakes in individual Dixie Cups and added gummy worms!
