Oreo Pie is a no bake dessert that Oreo fans will love!
Easy to make with simple ingredients, it features a homemade oreo crust and rich oreo filling!
The question is.. is there such a thing as too many oreos? I think not :)
Everyone who had a piece of this no bake oreo pie could not get enough. The only question was “can I have some milk?” not “next time can you make this with less oreos?”
I mean, they are America’s favorite cookie for a reason!
You will need 2 packages of oreos to make this oreo pie. No judgement, okay?
1 entire package is used to make the oreo crumb crust, then you’ll need to use 12 oreos from the second package for the filling, plus more oreos for the top of the pie. Lots of oreos for the top of the pie!
This easy dessert starts with an oreo cookie crust and is paired with a creamy filling thats loaded with oreo crumbs and crushed oreo pieces. Oreo lovers will crazy for this sweet treat. I can guarantee it will become one of their favorite pies!
To skip a few steps and save time, you can use a store-bought oreo pie crust or any pre-made pie crust.

What You’ll Need
- 2 packages oreos – 14.3 oz each
- unsalted butter
- 2 packages cream cheese – 8 oz each cream cheese, you can use original or 1/3 less fat
- powdered sugar – also called confectioners sugar

How to make oreo pie
LAYER #1 – OREO CRUST
In a blender or food processor, pulse 1 package of oreos into crumbs. You need exactly 36 oreos – both Oreo brand and generic store brand seem to have 36 in one 14.3 oz package, so buy whichever is cheaper!
Combine the crumbs with melted butter and press the oreo mixture into the pie plate using the bottom of a measuring cup.
LAYER #2 – OREO FILLING
Beat the cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla extract and 12 crushed oreos together.
Gently mix in the cool whip.
Spread the filling over the oreo crust.
LAYER #3 – CHOCOLATE GANACHE
Place chocolate chips in a medium heat-proof bowl.
In a small pot over low heat, heat the heavy cream until just before boiling.
Pour the heavy cream over the chocolate chips. Allow the mixture to stand for 1-2 minutes.
Use a spatula to stir the mixture until smooth.
Allow the ganache to come to room temperature before adding it to the pie. Pour chocolate ganache on top of the filling.
LAYER #4 – OREOS
Chop as many oreos as you want and put them on top of the pie. I like to line the outside edge of my pie with oreos that stick up for a fancy presentation.
Then refrigerate or freeze the pie until set, at least 2 hours.
This pie can be kept in the fridge or the freezer. In the fridge the pie is softer and the filling is light. But it also tastes amazing out of the freezer.
Now that I’ve made this pie a few times, I’ve discovered that I prefer it frozen rather then just refrigerated. Be sure to cover the entire pie in a layer of plastic wrap for best results while storing.
Even when “frozen” the filling is still creamy and easy to cut through, the only thing that gives a little trouble to cut through is the oreo crust. But I figure I can dish out a little elbow grease for a piece of pie.
Can This Oreo Pie Be Made Ahead of Time?
Yes. You can make this pie ahead of time. This recipe makes for an amazing Thanksgiving pie. Assemble the pie then wrap it really well in plastic wrap and store it in the freezer for up to 3 months.
To thaw: place the wrapped pie in the fridge overnight.
- 5 minutes to make the crust
- 5 minutes to make the filling
- 10 minutes to make the chocolate ganache and add the oreos
- 1-2 hours to chill in the fridge or freezer
Gluten Free Oreo Pie
It was really easy to make this no bake oreo pie gluten free by using gluten free oreos. You can buy gluten free oreos at the grocery store or on amazon. All of the other ingredients in the recipe are naturally gluten free.
- Blend the entire oreo (the cream and the cookies) when making the crust.
- To decorate the top of the pie with oreos, cut several oreos in half. Place the halves around the outside of the pie. Add more chopped oreos to the center.
- For clean pie slices, wipe your knife between each cut.
What type of chocolate did you use?
To make the chocolate ganache, I used semi-sweet chocolate chips. Feel free to use milk chocolate or dark chocolate chips too.
Does oreo pie need to be refrigerated?
Yes. The recipe contains cream cheese and cool whip, which need to be stored in the fridge for best results.
How long does oreo pie last in the fridge?
When covered and stored properly, this pie will last for up to 5 days in the fridge. However, it’s so good, you might eat the whole thing right away!
Can you freeze no bake oreo pie?
Yes. You can either freeze the pie to enjoy it as a frozen dessert or you can freeze the pie to store it for later. To freeze, assemble the pie then wrap it really well in plastic wrap and store it in the freezer for up to 3 months.

This pie looks and sounds amazing! I am definitely going to have to try this :)
It’s funny, I absolutely adore Oreos in desserts just not as a biscuit to eat alone.
Thank you so much for sharing this amazing recipe! I made this pie for a work potluck, and won runner-up! :) Although it takes some time to put each layer together, it is very easy and it looks so impressive for the little amount of effort involved. My bf thought it was delicious and texted: “YUMMMMMMMMMMM”. Nuff said! ;)
Hahaha!! Love what the boyfriend said!
Could I make this in a spring form pan? I always feel like those are easier to display/serve. Has anyone ever done that?
Oh yes! You definitely could!
Sorry but NO good pie could possible have Cool whip as an ingredient. NASTY!
If you are opposed to cool whip you could substitute your own homemade whipped cream.
I don’t know why people are complaining about the Cool Whip, I just made the filling and it’s delicious!
can we use something else instead of cool whip? i dont have this product where i Live…. thanks
Hi Katrina! You can make homemade whipped cream and use that!
hi! this pie looks delicious and i’m thinking about making this for my sisters birthday, i’m just wondering how many people does it serve?
Hi Kai! at least 8!
Ey just want to know must it be in the freezer or can I put it in fridge as well
You could put it in the fridge, it will be more mousse like then frozen.
I have a premade oreo crust I need to use, should I cut the recipe in half since it calls for a 10 inch pan?
Your premade oreo crust should work great in this recipe – no need to cut the recipe in half.
Hi! Making this for Christmas!! What kind of chocolate chips – semi sweet or milk chocolate?
I use semi-sweet usually!
I learned to bake with exact measurements-
What is a standard container of cool whip??
I made this for my boyfriend’s birthday. It was delicious and very easy to make. I will be making it again.
Sounds like it was a happy birthday!!
Made this with my own whipped cream but it was just way too sweet. Even my kids got sick after one piece. But it was delicious. We did not add all the oreo to the top either, that would be over kill.
Thank you for the recipe, looks amazing, planning to make it tomorrow.
Can I ask how many Oreos does a package containe? We have a few versions of Oreo packages and I don’t know how many Oreos do I exactly need to make the pie.
And here where I live there is no such thing is Cool Whip, can I use liquid cream beated to foam instead?
This looks awesome! I’m bringing a dessert for our July 4th get together. If I double this do you think I could make it in a 9×13 pan?
Hi Sarah! I’m not sure.. but I think it could work!
Could I use pre-made hot fudge topping instead of the chocolate ganache? I don’t have a microwave and I tend to seize my chocolate every time I try a double boiler.
Hi Angie! The hot fudge won’t be the same consistency as the chocolate ganache, but I bet it will taste just as good! So I say, go for it!
Why powered sugar over pure cane sugar? I always always get these two sugars confused and it literally makes me panic over the outcome of a recipe lol
Great question! Powdered sugar won’t leave a grain-y texture like granulated sugar can! You want the cream cheese layer to be SMOOTH!
Overall the pie turned out pretty good. It does take a lot of time to make but it’s worth. The only thing that I had a problem with was the cream cheese, it seemed when I tried it had a strong cream cheese taste. Did u do something wrong? I used what the recipe said.
Hmmm! There’s enough oreos and sugar in the recipe where it shouldn’t taste overly cream cheese-y.
Could I make this pie ahead of time and freeze it to serve 2 days later or would it not be as good?
As long as you wrap it well with plastic wrap, I think it will be fine!
This was a lot of fun to make! Very easy and the outcome is impressive! Very rich! Definitely need lots of milk! Loved it 😋
We made this for Pi Day and it was a hit!!
Gosh, I wish I had a piece!!
Do you take the cream out of the oreos for the crust?
I can’t wait to try this out! How long would you leave the crust in the freezer before adding the cream layer?
I just popped the crust in the freezer while I was preparing the next layer, so not super long!
For the chocolate chips, does it matter what kind they are? What kind did you use or find taste better?
Hi Katherin! I almost always use semi-sweet!
THIS WAS AN AMAZING PIE! It was very simple to make and had an awesome taste. I made it for Pi Day. Thanks so much for the recipe. I just had a question. If you want to serve it 3 days after you make it, do you put it in the freezer with tinfoil? Is that okay? Thanks!
Thank you so much! I’m glad you enjoyed! & yes, putting it in the freezer is fine!
I only have a 9″ pie pan/plate, will that be big enough to hold everything?
I made this pie! (delicious) When you mix whip topping and cream cheese together the filling sets up perfectly for slicing without freezing. Just in case you don’t have freezer room. (happens alot in my house)
Hi! What is a substitute for heavy whipping cream for the ganache??
My husband loved this pie. Myself no, but then I do not like chocolate at all. But everyone else loved it
I made this pie for the November 2021 baking challenge. It was a huge hit for our Thanksgiving dessert! The recipe was easy to put together and made for a impressive presentation!
Would this fit in an 8″ premade oreo crust?
It will probably overflow an 8 inch crust – so you might have extra filling!
