Cookie Treat

This dessert was extremly close to one of my favorites.
I was a little nervous because it calls for the dreaded tube of cookie dough.
But I think it turned out ok.
One day I hope to conquer that tube of cookie dough.
We just don't get along right now!
I hope you guys give this recipe a try, I think it's worth it!

Cookie Treat
1 tube sugar cookie dough (or other dough if desired!)
1 lg box instant chocolate pudding
1 pint half and half
1 8oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 candy bar (heath or any other)
Preheat oven as directed on cookie dough tube

(the tube and I weren't even getting along well enough for him to be in my picture!)
In a greased cookie pan, press cookie dough evenly and bake as directed.
Make sure that the center is done. Oh how I hate this tube!

Be glad there is even a picture....ugh!
In a seperate bowl, combine softened cream cheese, sugar and vanilla.
Spread over cooled cookie.

Combine pudding and half and half.
You must use half and half, it's what makes the pudding thick enough to stay on this sucker!
Pour over cream cheese mixture.
Top with crumbled candy bar.
(obviously, mine isn't a candy bar. I had forgotten to pick one up at the I improvised!
As I am sure you could too!)
It really is a yummy little treat!
It doesn't hold too well overnight, so make sure it will be eaten the day you make it!
I'm so glad summer is almost here...I have a ton of ice cream recipes.
It's just been too cold to make them!
I hope I haven't lost all my readers.
Stay tuned,
I promise to have more recipes!
