1 pouch (17.5 ounces) oatmeal cookie mix + ingredients required on the pouch
⅓ cup butter, melted
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
½ cup + 2 tablespoons caramel sauce
12 ounces Cool Whip, thawed
2 cups apple pie filling
2 boxes vanilla instant pudding
3 cups cold milk
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake cookies according to package directions, then cool completely.
In a food processor, blitz half the baked cookies until they become coarse crumbs. Transfer to a medium bowl, then continue blitzing the remaining half of cookies to coarse crumbs and add to the bowl. Mix in the melted butter until well-combined. Press the cookie mixture evenly into the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish, then set aside.
In a mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and ½ cup of the caramel sauce with a hand mixer until smooth. Gently fold in 2 cups of the Cool Whip until well-combined, then spread evenly over the prepared crust. Top evenly with the the apple pie filling.
In another mixing bowl, beat together the pudding mixes and milk about 2 minutes, or until thick. Scoop over the apple layer, spreading evenly, then spread the remaining Cool Whip over. Cover and chill 4 hours.
When ready to serve, slice into squares and drizzle caramel sauce on top. Enjoy!
