Oreo Cream Pie-- Celebrating 30 years on this earth!

Friday I celebrated my 30th birthday! Following tradition, I decided what I wanted for my 'cake' and made it myself. ;)

And I must say, I outdid myself this year. In the past, when I was too intimidated to make it for myself, I bought a frozen Cookies & Creme Pie. Silly me. Homemade is always better, and this was no exception. (Well, except for the calories. For heaven's sake, don't look at the nutritional facts. I honestly thought about skipping that, but some people want to know... Just make it for your birthday, calories don't count on your birthday. Right? At least if you don't do the math until after you've eaten it...)

This is one of the best desserts I've ever made. And, modestly aside, that's saying something. You guys know me and my desserts. This is perfectly rich, a small slice is just enough, it has just enough sweet, and the perfect amount of Oreo in each bite.

Now, there are two separate recipes here--the pie crust, and the pie. I've included 3 printables--the crust, the pie, and both.

(I did not take a picture of the crust before I filled it, sorry!)
Oreo Pie Crust

  • 24 Oreos, crushed
  • ¼ cup melted butter

  1. Lightly grease a 9” pie pan; set aside.
  2. Combine Oreo crumbs and butter in a medium bowl, mix well. Press mixture evenly in pan; covering the bottom and up the sides. (Careful to spread it evenly!)
  3. Freeze for one hour before filling.

1 pie crust, 6-8 servings
15 minutes + freezing
