This easy Oreo Pie Crust takes minutes to prepare! It’s the perfect base for no-bake cheesecakes and ice cream cakes.
Oreo Pie Crust Recipe
We used to buy Oreo crusts at the store and would be disappointed when they tasted stale.
After buying another stale crust, I decided it was time to start making homemade Oreo cookie crust, and I am so thankful we started making them at home.
They are honestly so easy to make, and you can prep them beforehand, so they are ready when you make a no-bake Oreo Cheesecake or another epic dessert.
You only need two ingredients and a few minutes to prep an epic homemade Oreo pie crust. I love that you can make them with any flavor of Oreo.
Store shelves seem packed with tons of Oreo flavors for an epic homemade Oreo Crust.
Some of my favorites to use are Mint Oreos for St. Patrick's Day, Chocolate Oreos for even more chocolate goodness, Chocolate Hazelnut Oreos if you have any Nutella fans in the house, and Peanut butter because who doesn't love chocolate and peanut butter together.
I want to try this recipe with Lemon Oreos and a no-bake cheesecake. Hello yum!
This quick and easy no-bake pie crust with Oreo cookie crumbs is so easy the instructions are only four steps.
This is a quick overview of the simple ingredients that you'll need to make an epic Oreo Crust! Specific measurements and step-by-step instructions are included in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post.
- Oreo Chocolate Sandwich Cookies
- Unsalted Butter
Oreos - You can use regular, gluten-free, or any flavor Oreo you love.
Optional - Additional sugar. Depending on the pie you are making you can add sugar to this no bake pie crust
- 9-inch Pie Plate or Springform Pan
- Measuring Cups
- Food Processor/Blender: If you don't have a food processor or blender handy, you can crush the Oreos in a freezer bag with a rolling pin. This method is an excellent way for kids to help with dessert making.
- Microwave Silicone Cover: I swear by these lid covers to help prevent butter splatters when melting butter in the microwave. I have had way too many butter explosions while baking. This lid cover helps keep the butter in the bowl and not on the roof of your microwave.
How to make an Oreo Crust
I've included complete instructions in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post, but here's a quick version.
Step 1 - Add the Oreos (with filling) to a food processor or blender and grind until you have fine crumbs.
Step 2 - Mix Oreo crumbs with melted butter in a large bowl. You want the Oreo Crumb mixture to feel like the consistency of wet sand.
If your crumbs are dry you can add in melted butter 1 tablespoon at a time until the crumbs are evenly moistened.
If your crumb feels to wet you can add in additional Oreo crumbs until the moisture feels right and everything sticks together easily.
Step 3 - Pour the Oreo mixture into a pie dish or springform pan and press on the bottom and sides evenly. We like to use a measuring cup to make it easier to press the Oreo crumbs into an even layer.
Step 4 - Bake in the oven or place in the refrigerator to set. This crust can also be frozen to help the butter solidify.
Preparation and Storage
Make-Ahead + Storage + Freezing/How to Freeze: This Oreo Pie Crust is make-ahead-friendly! Wrap it snugly in plastic wrap and aluminum foil (or an airtight container), then store it in the fridge for up to three days or freezer for up to three months until you want to use it for a pie or other dessert.
How to Reheat: You can bake this pie crust at 350°F for 8-10 minutes for a baked Oreo crust.
You can use regular, gluten-free, or any flavor Oreo you love.
Vegetarian Option: This recipe is vegetarian.
Vegan Option: Swap the butter for plant-based butter to make this recipe vegan. We’ve seen many accounts stating that Oreos are safe for a vegetarian diet, but none from the brand itself, so vegan eaters should use a vegan alternative to be sure.
Gluten-Free: Gluten-free eaters should use Oreo’s gluten-free variety.
Alcohol-Free Option: We don’t use alcohol in this two-ingredient recipe, but check out this Cook’s Illustrated guide on Using Alcohol in Pie Dough if you’re curious about adding some to yours.
Smaller Serving Size + Larger Group/More Servings: The written recipe fills a 9-inch pie pan. Spread it across tart pans to make smaller tart shells, and double it per extra 9-inch pie crust you want to make.
Sugar-Free: The written recipe contains 15 grams of sugar per serving. Use sugar-free Oreos to make it sugar-free.
Tips for the Best Oreo Pie Crust
