{easy} {no-bake} Oreo Pie

Anything Oreo is always amazing! This pie is no exception. Added bonus..it’s no-bake.

Recently, I was asked to make an Oreo pie. This is the recipe I came up with and it does NOT disappoint.

If you’re like my Ma you don’t use any recipe that starts with flour. I’m the complete opposite, so I found a way to make it a little extra with the decorating. As you can see I made two presentation options. Both are super cute & easy!

The decorating is simple. Option 1- If you want to get a little creative, use an 8B Wilton piping tip and piping bag. Pipe a border along the edge of the pie. I like to pipe around the pie twice and finish with some crushed Oreos. Option 2- This way is little-to-no effort, simply sprinkle the top of the pie with crushed Oreos.

Here’s My Notes:

1)I suggest making this pie the night before you plan on serving it. It really gets a thick, cheesecake-y consistency as it chills.

2)The whipped cream for piping has to be whipped to very stiff peaks. Which is technically incorrect, but crucial for the cream to hold it’s shape.

3)Don’t even consider trying to half this recipe. Trust..you’re going to eat it all, and have no leftovers. If you do happen to have leftovers, keep refrigerated.

4)I made these pies in two stoneware pie plates.  If you decide to make yours in foil disposable pie pans you’ll have to divide the Oreo crust and filling into three pans.

5)If you don’t want to whip your own cream , u can just use Cool Whip. Just omit the 2 Tablespoons of sugar in the filling.

6)You’re going to need 2 packages of Oreos (I used Double-Stuf) for this recipe.

 

{easy} {no-bake} Oreo Pie

Yields:2-3 pies

Ingredients:

crust-

25 oreos

5 Tablespoons butter, melted

filling-

1 (8ounce) package cream cheese, room temperature (pls use Philadelphia cream cheese, it’s seriously the best)

1 (14ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

1 (5.1ounces) package instant vanilla pudding

2 cups milk (whole or 2%)

1 cup heavy whipping cream

2 tablespoons sugar

15 Oreos, crushed (I like a mix of chunks of Oreo and finely crushed Oreos)

topping (if using)-

1 cup heavy whipping cream

2 tablespoons sugar

1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Oreos, crushed

Directions:

Place pie plates on a large sheet pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a food processor, pulse the Oreos until finely crushed into crumbs. Add melted butter and pulse to combine. Once combined, divide equally into the pie pans. Press the crumb mixture into the bottom of the pie pans.

Bake crust in preheated oven for 7 minutes. Allow to cool completely before filling.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whip heavy cream and sugar into soft peaks. Remove from bowl and set aside. In the same mixing bowl beat cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk until completely incorporated. Next add pudding mix and milk, mix together for about 3 minutes and let set for 5 minutes. Gently fold in whipped cream and crushed Oreos.

Divide filling equally into  pie crust and smooth with a small off-set spatula. Place in the fridge for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.

 

Decorate pies as desired and serve. Enjoy!!

Fresh Strawberry Cheesecake Pie

Whenever fresh strawberries are available at our local farm, my mind becomes filled with dessert ideas. My all time favorite is fresh strawberry pie.  I consider it to be a southern classic  pie! The kind of fresh strawberry pie you’ll find in your community church cookbook or your cousin brings to all the summer potlucks. But it’s just a staple, definitely a good recipe to have in your repertoire…… I never get tired of it. I’ve eaten many slices of fresh strawberry pie over the summers and it’s always something I look forward to around this time of year.


I wanted to change up my favorite summer pie just a little by adding a no-bake cheesecake layer, and  I probably ate about 3/4 of this pie on my own.

Here’s my Notes:

1)This pie needs time to chill in the fridge. I suggest making it the day before you plan on serving it. The jello needs to chill and the cheesecake layer will have time to really set up and get firm….it becomes so smooth & creamy 😋

2)I really suggest blind baking the pie crust. Just use some dry black eye beans, you don’t have to have those fancy pie weights…. it’s a extra step worth doing.

3)This recipe makes two deep dish pies.  I suggest you give the other pie away to a friend…they’ll love you.

Fresh Strawberry Cheesecake Pie

Yields:2 deep dish pies

Ingredients:

2 frozen deep dish pie shells

no-bake cheesecake layer-

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese {I love Philadelphia Cream Cheese, I honestly think it’s the best}

2 cups heavy whipping cream

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup sugar

1 cup powdered sugar

strawberry layer-

1 quart fresh strawberries, washed & halved

1 cup water

1 cup sugar

3 Tablespoons cornstarch

1 (3ounce) package strawberry jello

 Directions:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Blind bake the two frozen pie shells in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool completely before continuing.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and sugar until smooth; transfer to another bowl. Using the stand mixer bowl again whip the whipping cream until stiff peaks. Add cream cheese mixture and vanilla; whip together until fully incorporated. Divide the cheesecake mixture evenly between the two pie shells.

In a medium saucepan stir together the water, 1 cup sugar, cornstarch, and jello with a whisk. Bring mixture to a boil, allow to cook for about 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and add the halved strawberries. Divide the strawberries evenly over the top of the cheesecake layer. Chill the pies for at least 6 hours before serving. Enjoy !

Chocolate Punch Bowl Dessert 

There is just something about creamy, layered desserts that people just can’t get enough of…


This dessert was inspired by my Aunt Sheree, who described to me a dessert she had just made for a church luncheon. (She informed me that cook & serve pudding is way better than just the instant.) I thought I would give her version a try, and served it at my church too. Well, I could barely get a picture before they devoured it. Layered desserts always seem to do well with crowds. They’re easy to make, but impressive to look at…..not to mention it’s delicious. I promise if you take this to a summer cook-out, it will be a huge hit!!

Here’s My Notes:

1)When you’re using cook & serve pudding make sure you use it right away. As the pudding cools, it will form a skin on the top— so layer immediately.

2)I decided to top my dessert with fresh strawberries, but mini Oreos would be cute too.

3)I crushed my oreo cookies in my food processor to crumbs. You can just crush them up in a plastic Zip-loc bag.

4)I wanted to put my dessert in a punch bowl, but they were all too big…so i just went with a trifle dish. But if you really want to feed a crowd you could easily double this recipe and serve it in a huge punch bowl.

5)This dessert is perfect to make in advance.

Add the cream cheese – sugar mixture to the whipped cream; beat together for about 5 minutes on high speed.

Assembly

It’s finally time to layer the chocolate masterpiece! Begin with a brownie layer… next, a generous layer of cream…then pudding… and finally crushed oreos. Continue this process til u fill the bowl. Chill for at least two hours before serving. I suggest making it the night before and chilling it overnight. I topped my dessert with halved strawberries, but garnish however you desire. Enjoy! 🍓
