Learn how to make your own homemade Oreo pie crust with just two ingredients in less than 10 minutes. Perfect for baked or no-bake pies!
I’ve never been a fan of the store-bought Oreo pie crusts because they’re super crumbly and fall apart so easily. Several years ago I learned how easy it was to make my own right at home and I’ve never looked back.
You only need two ingredients (yes, just TWO!) and about 10 minutes to prepare this homemade Oreo pie crust. This recipe also works perfectly for a no-bake or a baked pie crust, so I’ve included instructions for how to prepare it both ways. I’ve also included a couple of ways that you can use this pie crust recipe.
Trust me when I say once you learn how to make your own Oreo pie crust, you’ll never go back to the crumbly store-bought version again.
To make this pie crust, you’ll need a package of Oreo sandwich cookies and some melted butter. You can use any kind of Oreo cookie that you prefer in this recipe, but here I’m just using regular Oreos. And if you’re wondering if it’s okay to leave the filling in the cookies, the answer is YES! There’s no need to remove the filling from the Oreos.
You’ll add the Oreos (filling and all) to a blender or food processor and process until you have fine crumbs. If you don’t have a blender or food processor, you can also just use a plastic bag and rolling pin to smash the cookies into crumbs. All three options work great, but I like to use my food processor to make it a bit easier.
Once you have cookie crumbs, you’ll combine them with some melted butter and stir the two together until they’re well combined.
Then, you’ll scoop the crumbs into a pie plate and press them down into an even layer on the bottom and around the sides. There’s no need to spray your pie dish with nonstick cooking spray either. In fact, I never spray my pie dish when I prepare this crust and it always comes out just fine.
To make it easier to press the crust into the pan, I like to use the bottom of a measuring cup. It works much better than just using your hands and it helps pack the crumbs down nicely into an even layer.
Once you’ve pressed the crumbs into your pie dish, you can refrigerate it for a no-bake pie like my No-Bake Oreo Cheesecake pictured above. Or you can bake the pie crust for a few minutes to use in a baked pie or in something like these Mini Oreo Cheesecakes.
- 24 Oreos
- 4 tablespoons (60 grams) butter, melted
- Add the Oreos to a blender or food processor and process until you have fine crumbs. Scoop the crumbs into a mixing bowl and add the melted butter. Mix together until all of the crumbs are moistened.
- Scoop the mixture into a 9-inch pie plate and firmly press it down into an even layer on the bottom and up around the sides of the dish.
- For a baked pie crust: Bake at 350°F for 8-10 minutes.
- For a no-bake pie crust: Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes while preparing your filling, then fill the pie crust.
