Oreo Pie

Oreo Pie

Happy Sunday! I just love summer weekends. For us, this weekend was full of hanging out with friends and attending our first live sporting event in months! Now, I’m cuddling on the couch with my pup – life is good.

We were planning to host some friends at our house on Saturday night, so I was looking for a quick and yummy dessert that tasted like home. As you all know, my husband loves chocolate. This weekend though, I got a hankering for Oreos – so what better than Oreo pie?

I started with this recipe, but honestly I didn’t love it. I should’ve known better since I usually don’t like recipes that contain Cool Whip. Homemade whipped cream is just so easy to make, so why settle for less? Anyways… I’m going to share some of what I wished I had done in the recipe below…

Here is what you’ll need…

For the crust:

  • ~24 Oreo Cookies (I bought a family-sized package of Oreos and it worked perfectly for what you need for this recipe all together)
  • 5 tablespoons of unsalted butter, melted

For the filling:

  • 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 8 oz cream cheese (softened at room temp)
  • 3/4 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla
  • ~10 Oreo Cookies (Honestly, I would just add whatever you have left from the crust in)

Here’s what you’ll need to do…

For the crust:

  • Preheat your oven to 350 (I didn’t pre-bake the pie crust, but I wished I did)
  • Mix the ~24 Oreos in a food processor – I just used a rolling pin, but I think it turns out better the finer you can get the crumbs.
  • Stir the Oreo crumbs with the 5 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • Firmly press the butter and crumb mixture into the bottom and sides of a standard pie dish
  • Bake for ~10 minutes

For the filling:

  • Whip the 1 cup of heavy whipping cream on medium/ high until stiff peaks form – you can use the paddle attachment or whisk attachment on your standing mixer
  • Set aside – then whip the block of cream cheese and 3/4 cup of powdered sugar together on medium/ high until they are smooth
  • Fold in the whipped cream and 1 tablespoon of vanilla into the cream cheese (either by hand or in the mixer) until smooth – go easy!
  • Crush the remaining Oreo cookies and fold in to the mixture – go easy here too!
  • Pour the filling into the pie crust and then let sit in the fridge overnight for best results

This one is definitely a crowd-pleaser! I mean, who doesn’t like Oreos? It is also really easy and only requires a few ingredients too, which makes it perfect for company. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Happy Baking!
