Oreo Pi(e)!

Every year for Pi day, March 14 (3/14), my math class brings in pie and of course, I always contribute! This year I decided to make a consistent favorite, Oreo (cookies and cream) pie! It’s super simple to make and never disappoints!

Here are the ingredients that you will need:

  • 1 1/2 boxes of Oreos
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) melted butter
  • 3/4 tub of cool whip
  • 1 8oz pack of cream cheese
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup white sugar

First, I made the crust. I placed about a half a box of Oreos in a food processor and chopped it until they were crumbs.

Then, I slowly added and mixed in the melted butter with the Oreo crumbs until they were combined.

Once the mixture was all stuck together, I poured it out into my pie pan and used my hands to spread it evenly around the pan.

After the crust was spread all around the pan, I placed it into the fridge for 20-30 minutes until it cooled completely!

While the crust cooled, I began to make the filling! To begin, I whipped the cream cheese, vanilla, and sugar all together.

Then I folded in the cool whip! It will seem like a lot of cool whip, but trust me, it balances well with the cream cheese mixture!

Next, chop up a whole box full of Oreos. Make sure not to completely crush the Oreos to crumbs; the Oreo chunks are the best part!

Once the Oreos are chopped up, fold them into the cream mixture!

Place the filling into the pie shell and put the whole pie back in the fridge for another 1-2 hours for the filling to set.

Finally, I decorated my pie to fit the pi theme in my math class! This is a perfect dessert for literally any occasion, but especially special for pi day! I hope you enjoy!
