Oreo Ice Cream Pie

This beauty is alllll because of Ben. [Who just started a blog, p.s.] Apparently, in his high school cafeteria, Oreo Ice Cream Pie was all the rage. Along with weenie winks [hot dogs wrapped in American cheese and white bread, then baked]. Look at this photo at your own risk, I’m not quite sure how anyone would find that appealing. But apparently some do. I can guarantee that pretty much everyone will find this pie appealing. And delicious. Certainly, delicious.

I don’t think I ever ate anything this good in my high school cafeteria, partially because we had open campus so I often went home or out to eat. But I digress. Who cares about high school food? That was so last decade! Instead of lamenting about the old caf, you can make an easy no-bake dessert at home that you can enjoy for days [if it lasts that long!!].

This pie couldn’t be simpler: an Oreo crust, Cookies and Cream ice cream, Cool Whip, and some cookie crumbs. Piece of cake. Cookie? Pie? Regardless, this pie is AWEsome. I made my own Oreo crust with butter and Oreo crumbs, but you can buy one if you’re pressed for time. My time concession was to use Cookies and Cream Ice Cream instead of mixing Oreos into vanilla ice cream. Whatever ingredients you choose are sure to be delicious! I think sometime I’d like to try it out with mint Oreos and Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream. Mmmm! But this time, I wanted to make the original for Ben to take him back to his days as a Lake High School Flyer! Happy Friday! ๐Ÿ™‚

Oreo Ice Cream Pie

  • Servings: 10
  • Print

Ingredients:

  • 1 small package Oreos [15.25 ounces]
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1.5-1.75 quart Cookies and Cream ice cream, softened on the counter for 20 minutes
  • 8 ounce package Cool Whip, softened on the counter for 20 minutes

Directions:

Crush 24 Oreos in a ziploc bag or food processor until you have fine crumbs. Transfer to a large bowl, then pour melted butter over cookie crumbs, stirring well to combine. Press mixture onto the bottom and sides of a 9 inch deep dish pie pan to form the crust.

Spoon ice cream over crust, then cover completely with Cool Whip. Crush 2-3 remaining Oreos and sprinkle over Cool Whip. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and return to freezer for at least 2 hours before serving.

Alternatively, you can stick the pie in the freezer uncovered for about 20 minutes, then remove it and stick a few toothpicks in the Cool Whip and then cover it with foil, using the toothpicks to hold up the foil so it doesn’t stick. Then return to freezer for at least 2 hours before serving.

Notes: I used the full 1.75 quart container of ice cream in a 9 inch deep dish pie pan. It was nearly overflowing. If you use a regular pie pan, use less ice cream. I’m sure you can find a use for what’s left! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. When I moved out to NJ, we had an overnight pit stop in PA. I grabbed an Oreo pie from Sheetz and it was the best thing ever. It reminded me of the oreo ice cream cakes my mom used to make for my birthday. So, I like Oreo pie and I love that you posted this recipe!
