1container (48 ounces or 3 pints)cookies and cream ice cream
1container (8 ounces)frozen whipped toppingthawed to room temperature
6-8regularOreo cookies(Note 1)
Line a 9-x-9-inch pan with parchment paper or foil (important for removal and slicing). Remove the ice cream from the freezer to barely soften-- however, you don't want the ice cream to get melty or too soft.
Unwrap the ice cream sandwiches. Press 9 sandwiches onto the bottom of the pan. You'll need to cut 2 down a little for them to fit (see pictures in the post).
With a large spoon, spread half of the ice cream over the ice cream sandwiches.
Press 9 more sandwiches on top. Spread remaining ice cream over the sandwiches, pressing firmly down. Cover tightly and place in the freezer until layers are firm, about 1 hour.
Right before serving, remove the dessert from the freezer and spread the whipped topping over everything. Crush Oreos and sprinkle on top.
Cut and serve.
Immediately return any leftovers, covered tightly, to the freezer. Best enjoyed the same day it's made--the whipped cream becomes icy as it's frozen.
Note 1: Try a crushed up candy bar (Heath, Skor, Butterfinger, etc) instead of the cookies, if desired.
