Oreo Chocolate Cookie Cake

Oreo Chocolate Cookie Cake
TGI Friday's Copycat Recipe

Makes 1 Cake

2/3 cup butter, softened
1 2/3 cups sugar
3 eggs
2 1/4 cups sifted cake flour
3/4 cup sifted cocoa
1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 cup butter, softened
4 ounces cream cheese, soften
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 cup whipping cream- whipped
12 Oreo sandwich cookies, coarsely crushed

10-12 Oreo Sandwich Cookies, very coarsely crushed. Leave several large chunks
2 cups Nabisco Chocolate Wafer (about 40 cookies),very finely and evenly crushed.

Cake:  Grease and flour two 9 inch layer pans. Cream together sugar, butter and eggs until fluffy. Sift together flour, cocoa and baking powder, baking soda and salt add to mixture. Add buttermilk and vanilla, Mix on low speed . Bake on 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until cake tests done.  Cool in pan 5 minutes. Invert onto wire rack, remove pans and cool completely.
Filling:  Beat whipped cream to soft peaks. Set aside. Beat cream cheese, butter and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Gently stir in whipped cream and crushed cookies. Place one of the cake layers on serving plate, top-side down.  Spread top of cake layer evenly with filling mixture. Place remaining cake layer on top, top-side up. Spread top and sides of cake evenly with remaining filling mixture.

Garnish:  Pat the very finely ground cookie crumbs onto the sides of the cake. Sprinkle top of cake with any remaining fine crumb and top with the coarse, larger cookie pieces.

To crush  the Oreo cookies to add to the filling, place in zip top plastic bag and crush coarsely with rolling pin.  To crush the Oreo cookies for the garnish use the same method  leaving many but leave large chunks for the top of the cake. Crush the chocolate wafers or Oreo cookies for the sides of the cake to make 2 cups cookie crumbs. These need to be crushed into a very fine, even crumb for the sides of the cake. If you have a food processor, blender or a mini processor. This will make a very nice fine crumb.  A short cut is to use a box of Devil's Food Chocolate cake mix and some store bought chocolate icing to finish the copycat recipe quickly.
