It’s been a while since we had something sweet around here. Would you like a slice of pie?
This was actually our pi day pie. Made in the middle of the Nor’easter. I knew we’d be stuck in the house, so I picked a pie that Jake could help with.
We all really enjoyed this and while a frozen pie wasn’t necessarily the best choice for a snowstorm, it’s going to be perfect for summer barbecues!
No-Bake Oreo Pie
(adapted from The First Year)
1 premade Oreo crust
1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
10 Oreos chopped, divided
1 8 oz. container Cool Whip, thawed, divided
3/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until well combined and smooth. Stir in half the container of Cool Whip. Stir in 6 chopped Oreos. Spread mixture in the premade crust and freeze for 3 minutes.
Place chocolate chips in a heat-proof bowl. In a microwave-safe container, microwave heavy cream until just starting to bubble. Pour over the chocolate chips and let stand for 1 minute. Whisk together until smooth. Let cook to room temperature. Pour over the top of the pie and smooth out.
Spread remaining Cool Whip over the pie and then sprinkle remaining chopped Oreos over. Cover and return to the freezer for 1-2 hours. Remove a few minutes before serving.
