Oreo Pie…Oh My!

by Jamie on March 21, 2009

From the moment I saw this recipe on The Repressed Pastry Chef’s blog, I knew I would be making it at some point in the very near future. Em posted this recipe for Pie (Pi) Day and it looked easy and delicious. When I was at the market last weekend, they had pie crusts on sale so I snagged an Oreo crust and a package of Oreo cookies. This recipe came together with ease and took no longer than ten minutes from start to finish. The outcome is a seriously amazingly fluffy texture packed with Oreo goodness. If you like Oreos and want to wow your family into thinking you are a culinary genius, take ten minutes and whip this up for dessert tonight!

Here is Em’s Version-Adapted from Kraft
Ingredients
1 Oreo Pie Crust
12 Oreo cookies
8oz Cream Cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
2 cups whipped cream

Directions
In a small bowl, smash up 12 of the Oreo cookies…Set aside. In a medium bowl using a hand mixer, combine the cream cheese and sugar…Beat until light and fluffy. Add in the whipped cream and the smashed up Oreo cookies…Then use a rubber spatula and combine gently until well blended and the cookies are distributed throughout. Spoon into the Oreo pie crust and refrigerate about 2 hours or until firm.

Optional garnish… Cut 4 Oreo cookies in half and place the halves, cut side down, around a dollop of whipped cream placed in the center and dusted with Oreo cookie crumbs.

Note: The 2 cups of whipped cream is not the same as whipping cream. For this recipe the cream should be whipped. Use either freshly whipped cream or Reddi-Wip or Cool Whip or similar… But the cream is to be whipped, not liquid.

Oh man, I just have to try this. I love oreos, and I love when they get used in dessert–especially when that dessert comes together so easily. I’m pretty sure I could sit with this pie and a fork and polish it off…totally dangerous. Deliciously dangerous.

I love this because I LOVE OREOS. This is proof that you don’t have to slave away in a kitchen to make something delicious. I also love your plate (I have a thing for polka dots). Where did you get it?

I completely agree that this is a dangerous post! I would eat it all at once… It's a shame (or maybe a blessing) that you can't get oreo pie crusts in the UK.

You can just use the Oreos to make the crust! Just place them in a pan and then put the topping on it,!

How to make and Oreo pie crust. Buy a package of Oreo's open up each cookie and scrape off the filling with knife (if you have kids they love this step). Crush the Oreos like you would crush gram crackers for a gam cracker crust. Now get out your gram cracker crust recipe and substitute the oreo crumbs for the gram cracker crumbs. I can usually get 2-3 crusts out of one package of Oreos.

What do you mean by whipped cream? Whipped cream from a can? Or more of a cool whip kind?

Reply

Sara July 19, 2012 at 10:03 pm

Never mind i figured it out

Which whip cream did you guys find the best for this? Was it whipping cream that you beat yourself or Whip from a car or Cool Whip?

Emily-
Whipping cream is not the same as whipped cream. For the recipe, you can either use Cool Whip or make some homemade whipped topping by whipping one cup of whipping cream with one teaspoon of vanilla extra and one tablespoon of comfectioners sugar. Good luck and have a great day!

How many servings does this make? I want to make enough for 15 people this Thanksgiving

You would probably need 2 pies for 15 servings, unless your family is the kind to want a “half” slice of pie.
