Leftover crushed cookies create the yummy crust for this crowd-pleasing dessert. It's covered with a smooth cream cheese mixture, chocolate pudding and whipped topping (or this whipped topping substitute) for a lovely layered look. —Nancy Mueller, Bloomington, Minnesota

In a large bowl, combine 1-3/4 cups crushed cookies, sugar and butter; press into an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Bake at 350° until golden brown, 6-8 minutes; cool on a wire rack.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until smooth; fold in 1-1/2 cups whipped topping. Spread over cooled crust.
In another large bowl, beat milk and pudding mix on low speed until thickened, about 2 minutes. Spread over cream cheese layer. Top with remaining whipped topping; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup crushed cookies. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.
