Make Non-Dairy Cookies and Cream Frosting

INGREDIENTS

Don't confuse non-dairy with 'healthy', this is terrible for you. It is very sweet so go for a less sweet cake. Also check your cookie ingredients, Oreos are milk free but similar cookies may not be.

For cake filling, I use only a bit of 'milk' substitute and I use the most cookies and crush them roughly for a thick filling.

For straight frosting, I use more 'milk' and less cookies that are more finely crushed so it's easier to spread or pipe. If I'm doing both, I add the smallest amount of 'milk', then split the batch.

I find it easiest to crush the cookies by putting them in a big freezer bag and whacking them with a spoon or rolling pin. I can use the bag later to pipe icing
