Oreo Ice Cream Cake

I made this for King Peter's Birthday. It was a hit! For less than $4, I created something as good as one of those you can buy for $40 or more.

I carton of cookies & cream ice cream*
1 package of Oreos*

Set out ice cream to soften.
Put about half of package of Oreos in a food processor until they are crumbs. Spread the crumbs into the bottom of a 1o inch spring form pan.
Cut ice cream into sections & put them all in a bowl. Stir until soft (but not melted).
Drop ice cream onto crumbs. Do not try to spread it at this point - it will move the crumbs around.
Once all the ice cream is in the pan, and the bottom is pretty much covered with drops of ice cream, press the ice cream into the bottom of the pan.
Level the top out by carefully smoothing it out.
Decorate the top with Oreos.
Reward yourself by eating the leftover Oreos.

*This could easily be changed by using different ice cream, & cookies for the crust - vanilla wafers, graham crackers, chocolate graham crackers, shortbread cookies, sugar cookies, etc.
