Crust and topping:
48 Golden Oreo cookies-ground whole with the filling½ cup unsalted butter-melted1 oz. freeze dried strawberries- coarsely crushedStrawberry Jello Filling:
32 oz. fresh strawberry-sliced1 (3 oz.) pack strawberry flavored gelatin (like Jell-O)Whipped Cream:
3 cups heavy whipping cream¾ cup powdered sugar1 teaspoon vanillaCream Cheese Filling:
12 oz. cream cheese-room temperature½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter-room temperature1 cup powdered sugar1 teaspoon vanilla
First, make the strawberry filling. In a large saucepan, place sliced strawberries, sprinkle with dry strawberry Jello powder and stir gently with a rubber spatula to evenly coat the berries
. Heat over medium-low heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring gently with the spatula. Heat just until the gelatin completely dissolves in strawberry juice (do not cook them too long or the strawberry will become mushy).
Set aside to cool.To make the crust, place whole Oreo cookies with the filling in a food processor and pulse into fine crumbs.
Stir in melted butter, until all crumbs are evenly moistened. Reserve ¼ of the mixture for topping, and the remaining mixture press in the bottom of the 9 x 13 inches dish.
Place in the fridge or freezer.To make the filling, first, mix cold heavy whipping cream with 1 teaspoon vanilla until soft peaks form.
Add ¾ cup powdered sugar and continue mixing, until stiff peaks form. Set aside. You should get about 6-6 ½ cups of whipped cream.
You can substitute whipped cream with refrigerated Cool Whip if desired.In a large bowl, cream softened butter, cream cheese, and vanilla.
Mix in powdered sugar. Finally, fold in prepared whipped cream.Spread ½ of the cream cheese-whipped cream mixture over Oreo crust. Place in the freezer for 10 minutes.
Spoon strawberry filling over the cream cheese layer, smooth the top, and place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes (until the Jello has set).Spread remaining cream cheese filling over the strawberry layer.
Smooth the top and refrigerate for 4 hours or preferably overnight.To make the strawberry crunch topping, stir reserved Oreo crumbs with coarsely crushed freeze-dried strawberries and sprinkle on top.Serve cold from the fridge. Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 5-6 days.
