Last year, I made the best chocolate pie for Thanksgiving. This year, we made it even better by serving it in an Oreo cookie crust. Once upon a time you could buy Oreo cookie crumbs in a box just like you can buy graham cracker crumbs, but alas, no longer. You can still buy the pre-made chocolate shells but for a really delicious, Oreo flavored addition, crush the actual Oreo cookies. No need to add sugar, just a little butter to help the crust hold its shape when sliced.
Oreo Cookie Pie Crustmakes one 9 inch pie, prep 10 min, cook 10 min
- 24 Oreo cookies
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Place Oreos in a large plastic zip top bag and smash the heck out of them. A flat mallet or rolling pin works great. You could probably also use a food processor. Try to get Oreos to a consistent crumby mush. The filling should resemble moist crumbs (if you do this by hand there will be a few larger pieces in the mix, this is fine).
- Empty crumbs into a mixing bowl and stir in melted butter until well combined.
- Pat wet crumbs all over and up sides of pie dish, making an even surface.
- Bake crust for 8-10 minutes or until hardened. Cool before filling.
This is a great replacement for graham cracker crust and add a nice touch to the chocolate pie. A peanut butter pie would also be great!
