Are you ready for another Oreo recipe?! I know you are. This is one that you might like to make for Thanksgiving, because, it’s a PIE! I don’t know I just always think of pies for Thanksgiving, is that just me? Anyway, this Cookies and Cream Pie would be a great addition to your Thanksgiving table, perhaps a bit non-traditional but a welcome surprise. If you’re interested in other pie recipes for Thanksgiving I’ve got several and you can check them out here. I particularly recommend Pumpkin Cheesecake Pecan Pie, a bit more traditional… But, let’s explain this Cookies and  Cream Pie a bit better: Oreo crust, homemade Oreo filling pudding, topped with Oreo “hot” fudge, and whipped cream!

So, this recipe starts with Oreos – you’ll need one Family Size pack of Oreos. Just start by separating the filling from the cookies, I find it works well to use an icing spatula for this task. You can then grind up the Oreo cookies in a food processor to a fine “flour,” save a half a cup of cookies and just roughly break them up. Set the “flour” aside because we are first going to make the homemade Oreo filling pudding! So, in a saucepan place sugar, and cornstarch, whisk together.

Add the Oreo filling.

Add whole milk and heavy cream. Whisk and heat until the Oreo filling is melted and this mixture has thickened.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and whisk in the vanilla and butter, until the butter is melted.

Stir in the half cup course Oreo crumbs and pour the pudding into the pre-made Oreo pie crust.  Cool in the refrigerator until set.

In the meantime, you can make the Oreo “hot” fudge. Now, this is a bit interesting the first batch of this Oreo “hot” fudge I made was horrible I used 2T Oreo “flour” and 1T. cornstarch… the result was sort of a gelatinous brown mashed potato thing that was just gross😕. One the next attempt I decided to up the Oreo “flour” to 5T. to enhance the flavor and appearance, and to leave out the cornstarch completely, just to see what might happen. Then result much better, it was actually spreadable! and it tasted a lot better😋. So here is a horrible picture of a slice fo the first pie (I’m sure you can also tell the pudding was a bit too thin, I just added a bit more cornstarch to fix this).

Okay, so back to actually making the Oreo “hot” fudge. In a saucepan stir together sugar, Oreo “flour” and milk.

Boil and stir until well thickened.

Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the butter and vanilla until melted.

Cool slightly before spreading this over the pudding. Refrigerate until fully cooled.

Next, just whip up some cream (or use cool whip), pipe it on the pie, top it with a few Oreo “flour” sprinkles and a whole Oreo – done! Voila! A gorgeous, totally craveable Cookies and Cream Pie!

This is a great recipe to have in your recipe box whether it’s for Thanksgiving or sharing with friends after a summer BBQ it’s a great end to any meal. It is pretty rich so thin slices are a good idea.
