Oreo Pie Crust Ingredients
- Oreo Cookies: for a traditional crust, use plain Oreos. Or, trying different flavor combinations by using any one of the many flavors of Oreo Cookies out there. Mint, peanut butter or Funfetti would all make excellent pie crusts.
- Salted Butter: melt your butter in the microwave or in a small saucepan over the stovetop. You want it melted but not too hot.
How to Make an Oreo Pie Crust
- Make the Oreo crumbs. Using a food processor, pulse the Oreo Cookies until they form fine crumbs.
- Add the melted butter. Add the melted butter and pulse again to combine, using a spatula to scrape down the sides and mix as needed.
- Press into a pie plate. Scoop the mixture into a 9" pie plate, then use the flat bottom of a measuring cup to press it in evenly into the bottom and up the sides of the pie plate.
- Bake (unless you are making a no-bake dessert). Bake the crust in a preheated oven for 10 minutes.
- Cool and fill. Remove from the oven and cool completely before using. For best results, let the pie plate cool to room temperature and then place in the freezer for 30 minutes before adding the filling. Enjoy!
Oreo Cookie Pie Crust Recipe Variations
If you want to mix things up, here are a few ideas for recipe variations that will allow you to make all sorts of different pie flavor combinations.
- Peanut Butter Oreo Pie Crust: Combine crushed Oreo cookies with melted butter and peanut butter for a rich and nutty crust that complements chocolate or peanut butter pie fillings.
- Mint Chocolate Oreo Pie Crust: Add a touch of peppermint extract to the classic Oreo pie crust for a refreshing mint chocolate flavor that pairs well with mint chocolate chip or grasshopper pie fillings.
- Double-Stuffed Oreo Pie Crust: Use double-stuffed Oreo cookies to make the crust for an extra creamy and sweet flavor that complements a wide range of pie fillings.
- White Chocolate Oreo Pie Crust: Melt white chocolate and combine it with crushed Oreo cookies for a creamy and sweet crust that works with various fruity or chocolate fillings.
- Salted Caramel Oreo Pie Crust: Drizzle salted caramel sauce over the Oreo crust to add a salty-sweet dimension to your pie, ideal for caramel, chocolate, or nut fillings.
- Mocha Oreo Pie Crust: Mix instant coffee or espresso powder with crushed Oreo cookies to create a mocha-flavored crust perfect for coffee or chocolate pie fillings.
Frequently Asked Questions
Absolutely! If you want to make the crust ahead of time, you can freeze it for up to 3 months. You can also make this a few days in advance and cover with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and store at room temperature.
You can place the Oreos into a ziplock bag and crush them with a rolling pin, bottle or any other heavy item.
Nope - just crush and use the entire thing.
Besides a 9-inch pie plate, you can bake the crust (or no-bake it) in 9” springform pans, or even a 9”x9” square dish.
Since Oreos are technically vegan, you could replace the butter with a vegan butter substitute for a quick and easy vegan pie crust.
If you are going to bake the filling anyways, there is no need to pre-bake this Oreo Crust. For no-bake fillings, if you want a slightly crispier crust than you can bake it and cool it prior to filling. Otherwise, you can chill the crust in the fridge or freezer for at least 30 minutes prior to adding your no-bake filling for a completely no-bake dessert.
Storing and Freezing
- Room Temperature: cover with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to 3 days.
