Oreo® Cookie Pie Crust - ☺


Oreo Cookie Pie Crust

This recipe is included only because it is the best base crust for the fabulous Chocolate Cream Pie recipe shown earlier in this book.

As you might expect, an Oreo® cookie crust consists primarily of Oreo® cookies. While the amount of cookies needed to create a crust can vary depending on the size of the crust and the thickness desired, start with about 1-1/2 cups of finely crushed Oreo® cookie crumbs. That works out to approximately 20-22 Oreo® cookies. A 20 ounce package of Oreo’s® typically contains about 51 cookies, so you may be able to make two crusts out of one box. You will also need 3 tablespoons of melted butter for each crust made. It doesn't matter which flavor of Oreo® is used as the recipe remains the same.


First, mix the Oreo® cookie crumbs and butter in a bowl with a spoon until they're well mixed and have a consistent texture.

Use your fingers to press the crust into a pie plate or spring form pan.

If you're baking the filling in the crust, there's no need to bake the crust first.

If you are filling the crust with a cream filling that is chilled, you will want to bake the crust for 10-15 minutes at 350ºF and then chill the crust in the refrigerator before filling it. Baking the crust helps to keep it firm when the pie is cut.

Oreo® Cookie Crust Variations:

To make a mint Oreo® cookie crust, add 1/2 teaspoon of mint extract to the melted butter before mixing with the crumbs.

Another option is a vanilla Oreo® cookie crust. Simply use vanilla Oreo’s® instead of original Oreo’s®, and add 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract to the recipe.

For a cinnamon or coffee taste, you can also try adding 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon or 1 tablespoon of espresso powder.
