What You Will Need:
2 Boxes of No-Bake Cheesecake Mix ( I used the Jell-O brand's home-style cheesecake mix.)
1 Can Pumpkin Puree (or 1-1/2 Cups)
1 8-oz package of Cream Cheese (softened, leave out at room temperature for 30 minutes to an hour.)
1/4 Cup Sugar
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
1-1/2 Sticks of Butter (Softened / Melted)
1 Package Almond Windmill Cookies (Also acceptable are molasses cookies, oatmeal cookies, or gingersnaps)
2 Mixing Bowls
Measuring Cups / Spoons
Springform Pans (This will make a deep 10" cheesecake or two shorter 8" cheesecakes)
Gallon-sized Zip-lock Bag
Hammer / Mallet / Smashy Thing
Step 1: How bout them cookies?
Proceed to smash the living calories out of the cookies with your hammer / mallet / smashy thing. REALLY let your rage out. Stress from school, anger towards your boss, frustration with general people, just LET THOSE COOKIES HAVE IT. You want mostly a fine powder, but it is okay to have a few chunks in there too.
