“This is a yummy Chocolate Layer Pie. Its a recipe I came up with through a recipe for a French Silk pie I make. :-) If you use oreos...PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU SCRAPE OUT ALL OF THE FILLING! Dont leave any filling on the cookie, because this will cause your crust to get funky and it will burn. :-) I do not suggest using oreos...rather just use plain chocolate cookie crumbs. :-)”
