This pie crust is easy and flexible. There’s a baked and no-bake version, and they’re both super addictive. Just add your favorite filling and dig in.

What You’ll Need

Whether you want to make a baked or no-bake pie crust, the ingredients are the same. It’s only the amounts that differ. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Oreos: You can use any kind of single-stuffed Oreos you like. Don’t remove the creme!
  • Unsalted Butter: The butter should be completely melted.

How to Make an Oreo Crust

This recipe is practically effortless. For a no-bake Oreo crust, you’ll need a 9-inch springform pan. If you’re planning on baking your crust, a pie plate will do the trick.

For a No Bake Crust

Prepare Pan: Prepare a 9-inch springform pan by lightly greasing the edges of the pan with cooking spray, then wiping gently with a paper towel. Line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper.

Blend Cookies: Grind the cookies into fine crumbs using a food processor or blender.

Add Butter: In a small bowl, melt the butter in the microwave for 30 to 45 seconds. Pour the melted butter over the cookie crumbs and stir until the crumbs are well coated.

Assemble Crust & Chill: Pour the mixture into your springform pan and press it firmly into the bottom and up on the sides to create a thick crust. Refrigerate the crust until you’re ready to use it (at least 30 mins).

For a Baked Crust

Heat Oven: Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Grind Cookies & Melt Butter: Grind the cookies into a fine crumb using a food processor or blender. In a small bowl, melt 4 tablespoons of butter in the microwave for 30 to 45 seconds.

Combine: Pour the melted butter over the cookie crumbs and stir until the crumbs are well coated. If the cookie crumbs still seem dry and hard to pack together, add an additional tablespoon of melted butter.

Bake: Tightly press the mixture into the bottom and up on the sides of the pie plate. Bake at 350°F for 8-10 minutes. Cool on the counter.

Tips for Success

There’s nothing comlicated about this recipe, and these tips make it even easier! Here’s my best advice for making homemade pie crust:

  • Use a Blender or Food Processor: I highly recommend using a blender or food processor to finely crush up your Oreos. It saves you the trouble of doing it by hand, gives you a finer crumb and it’s much quicker!
  • Press Firmly: When you’re filling the pie plate or springform pan with the crust, be sure to push it down firmly. This will help it hold its shape.
  • Add Butter As Needed: If you find that your crust is too crumbly and won’t pack down, add a little more melted butter until it’s moldable.
  • How to Use a Springform Pan: Never made a no-bake pie crust in a springform pan before? This step-by-step tutorial will tell you everything you need to know!

Ways to Use an Oreo Crust

This simple cookie crust is an amazing starting point for so many tasty treats. These are some of my favorite goodies to make with an Oreo crust!

  • In Cheesecake: Add an Oreo twist to this scrumptious White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake by using this crust instead of a graham cracker one! You can also make a Classic No Bake Cheesecake with this crust!
  • In Pie: My rich and silky no-bake Chocolate Pie tastes great with this buttery homemade Oreo crust. Yes, that would be chocolate crust with a chocolate filling. Why not?
  • Make Mini Cheesecakes: These cute little Mini Cheesecakes are so easy to make, and you can use this recipe for the crust! Just pack it into the individual cupcake liners before adding the cheesecake filling.
  • Make an Ice Cream Pie: Ice cream pie is such a tasty and refreshing treat. Try pairing your Oreo crust with this easy No-Churn Blueberry Ice Cream Pie!

Can I Make This in Advance?

Yes! This pie crust is great for making ahead of time. Store no-bake pie crust in the fridge for at least 30 minutes and up to 24 hours before using.

To store baked pie crust for later use, let it cool completely and chill it for up to 24 hours. When you’re ready to make your pie, cheesecake, etc., let it come to room temperature.

Can I Freeze the Crust?

This chocolate cookie crust is also freezer friendly! If your pie crust has been baked, be sure to let it cool completely before freezing it. Frozen pie crust will last for up to 3 months! Thaw it out in the fridge and bring it to room temperature before using.
