What is an Oreo pie crust?

An Oreo pie crust isn’t pastry; it’s simply cookie crumbs that are mixed with melted butter to hold them together.  The mixture is tightly packed into a pie plate and chilled or baked to firm it up. 

How many Oreos make a cup of crumbs?

It takes about 20 to 22 Oreos to make 1 1/2 cups of crumbs.  My recipe uses 24 Oreo cookies, so you should have just over 1 1/2 cups of cookie crumbs.

Can you buy Oreo crumbs?

Yes, you can buy Oreo crumbs already made.  However, it’s super quick and easy to make your own.

How do you crush Oreos for pie crust?

You can use either a food processor or a rolling pin to crush the Oreo cookies.  There’s no need to remove the cream filling before crushing the cookies.  Simply blitz whole Oreos in a food processor or crush them in a zip-top bag with a rolling pin.

Is Oreo pie crust gluten free?

Oreo pie crust is not gluten free, because Oreos are made with wheat flour.  If you want a gluten free crust, you can buy gluten free Oreos or make your own.

Is Oreo pie crust vegan?

Although Oreos themselves are vegan, this pie crust recipe is not.  If you want to make a vegan version, use vegan butter or coconut oil instead of the butter.

Mix the Oreo cookie crumbs and the melted butter together.  Squeeze a clump of the mixture together; if it falls apart into dry little pieces, add more butter, but if it holds its shape, it’s perfect.

Pro Tips

  • Crush all the Oreos finely.  Make sure there are no chunks or clumps.
  • Squeeze a handful of the mixture to see if there’s enough butter to hold the mixture together.  That means your crust will hold together nicely.
  • Make sure to pack the crust tightly, or it will fall apart when you try to cut the pie.
  • Want a baked crust?  Bake it at 350 F for 8 to 10 minutes, until firm to the touch.

Scale

Ingredients

  • 24 Oreo cookies, including cream filling (272g)
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted (60g)

Instructions

  1. Crush the cookies in a food processor until they turn into fine crumbs.  Do not remove the cream filling from the Oreos.
  2. Pour the crumbs into a bowl and thoroughly mix in the melted butter.  If you squeeze a fistful of the mixture together, it should hold its shape without falling apart.  If the mixture is too dry and crumbly, add more melted butter.
  3. Press the crumbs into a 9-inch pie plate, using a flat-bottomed object like a measuring cup, and a spoon.  Make sure the crumbs are firmly packed in an even thickness around the base and sides.
  4. No Bake Crust: Chill the crust for 20-30 minutes in the fridge or 1 hour in the freezer before using.
  5. Baked Crust: Bake the crust at 350 F for 8-10 minutes, until crisp; then let it cool on a wire rack.
