1 (7.25-ounce) package butter cookies, crushed
1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Orange liquid food coloring (optional)
1 (12-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed and divided
1 (10-ounce) jar orange curd
2 teaspoons grated orange rind
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
Garnishes: whipped topping, orange rind curls, almond bark curls


Stir together cookie crumbs and butter; press evenly in bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pieplate.

Bake at 350° for 8 minutes; remove to a wire rack, and cool completely.

Beat cheese and powdered sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Stir in vanilla extract and, if desired, food coloring until blended; fold in 2 cups whipped topping. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly into prepared crust.

Stir together curd, rind, juice, and 2 tablespoons whipped topping. Spread evenly over cheese mixture; cover and chill 2 hours or until set. Garnish, if desired.
