Easy recipe with 3 simple ingredients
Regular Oreo cookies. I have tested this recipe with original Oreo chocolate sandwich cookies. Flavored Oreos with chocolate wafers and the same ratio of filling as regular Oreos (such as Mint Oreos, Peanut Butter Oreos, etc.) should also work just fine. I don't recommend Golden Oreos or Double-Stuf Oreos.
Butter. A little bit of melted butter holds the chocolate crust together.
Salt. A pinch of salt enhances the chocolate flavor.
How to Make an Oreo Cookie Crust
1. Crush the Oreos.
There is no need to remove the filling from the Oreos.
Grind the whole Oreos into finely crushed cookie crumbs in a food processor or blender. You can also place them in a ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin.
2. Mix it up.
Stir the Oreo crumbs, melted butter, and salt together in a medium bowl until completely combined.
3. Form the crust.
Pour the Oreo mixture into the pie plate, then use your hands to press the mixture into the pan.
Start at the bottom of pan and work your way up the sides.
Apply firm enough pressure to make a compact crust, but be careful not to use too much pressure or the crust can become hard. Use the bottom of a glass or measuring cup to help pack the crust into the pie plate.
4. Even out the edges.
Work your way around the crust using one thumb to gently press down on the top of the crust and the other hand or a glass or measuring cup to press the crust into the side of the pan.
No Bake Desserts. For no-bake fillings, I bake the crust at 350 for 10-12 minutes and let the crust cool completely. Be sure to follow the instructions on the no-bake filling recipe, which may instruct otherwise.
Baked Desserts. If you're making this Oreo crust for cheesecake or another baked dessert, follow the filling recipe's instructions for whether you should pre-bake the crust first.
Storage & Freezing
You can make this Oreo cookie pie crust recipe ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator for a few days.
You can also freeze it in the pan up to 3 months; thaw in the refrigerator.
Crush the Oreos into fine crumbs, filling and all. There is no need to scrape the filing out of the Oreos before making this pie crust.
Be careful not to pack the crust too tight or the crust can become hard.
For best results, bake your Oreo cookie pie crust unless the filling recipe states otherwise.
Oreo pie crust should be baked, unless the recipe for the filing says otherwise.
Baked pie and cheesecake recipes may instruct you to pre-bake the crust first. On the other hand, some frozen pie and ice cream cake recipes may call for freezing the crust instead of baking it.
Follow the recipe you're working with, as it's been tested specifically for that filling.
The easiest way to make fine crumbs out of Oreos is to crush them in a food processor or blender. You can also place the Oreos in a freezer bag and crush them with a rolling pin.
No. There is no need to scrape out the filling from the Oreos before crushing them into crumbs to make this yummy pie crust.
