Oreo Pie

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.

Why we love this pie

What You’ll Need

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.

Storage Tips

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.

Time Required

  • 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.

Pro Tips

To make the chocolate ganache, I used semi-sweet chocolate chips. Feel free to use milk chocolate or dark chocolate chips too.

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.

  • Cover the pie with tinfoil and return to the freezer or fridge for 1-2 hours. Before serving, remove the pie from the freezer and let it sit for a few minutes to make cutting it easier. Cover and freeze or refrigerate any leftovers.
