Hello my friend!

Today I am bringing you another useful basic that you’ll use over and over again: Oreo pie crust!

This recipe is easy as can be. It’s only got 2 ingredients and it takes 5 minutes to make. You don’t even have to bake it!

I’ve been making this forever, as a base to some of my favorite desserts. It gives the most amazing, crunchy chocolate contrast to peanut butter pie and grasshopper pie, and it works great under cheesecake too (try it with my favorite chocolate cheesecake!).

You’re going to love the crispy texture and the dark chocolate flavor!

HOW TO MAKE OREO PIE CRUST

This recipe is about as simple as it gets. You only need 2 ingredients:

  1. Oreo cookies
  2. melted butter

That’s it!

Oreo cookies in the bowl of a food processor.

Start by putting your cookies in the food processor to grind them up.

If you don’t have a food processor, you can buy one here: Food Processor.

Or you can just put your Oreos in a big zip-top bag and bash them with a rolling pin.

Grind them up as finely as you can.

Then add the melted butter.

Pulse the mixture until it’s combined, then toss it together with a fork just to make sure it’s well-incorporated.

Next, just tip the mixture into your dish.

Pressing Oreo crust into a pie dish with a measuring cup.

Press it firmly, into an even layer. I like to use the back of a measuring cup for this step. It really helps to get it flat and smooth!

Use the side of the measuring cup to go up the sides of the pan. It works really well!

HOW TO USE OREO PIE CRUST

This recipe works well as a base to any kind of cream pie or no-bake pie.

It’s also great for tarts, bars, or cheesecakes.

WHAT SIZE PAN WILL THIS WORK FOR?

This recipe yields enough crust for a standard-sized pie or tart, for an 8-inch diameter cake pan, or for a square baking dish.

You could definitely stretch it to fit a larger cake pan or a 9×13 pan, but it will just be a little thinner.

CAN OREO PIE CRUST BE BAKED?

You don’t have to bake this crust, but you certainly can if your recipe calls for it!

For example, it does not get baked in this mint chocolate icebox pie and it’s fine, but for this pumpkin chocolate swirl cheesecake it does, and it works beautifully.

GLUTEN-FREE OREO CRUST AND DAIRY-FREE OREO CRUST

If you’d like to make a gluten-free Oreo crust, just use gluten-free chocolate sandwich cookies in place of the Oreos.

If you’d like a dairy-free version, substitute melted coconut oil for the butter.
