When I was in high school, a good friend’s mom made us the best dessert I’d had…an Oreo pie. I honestly think that I ate at least 4 pieces, and even after a tummy ache…still wanted more. I begged her for the recipe, and she gave it to me. I read over it and chuckled to myself. No idea how I could possibly make something this delicious, because I didn’t know how to bake anything at that time…but knew that I would make it some day.
Several years later, my best friend (who absolutely LOVES Oreos, and that particular dessert we had) was turning 21, and I was throwing a party for her. Little did she know what I was going to make for her. When I made this pie, I REALLY wish they had already come out with the Oreo pie crusts, but they hadn’t yet…so I remember specifically having to individually crush up an entire package of Oreos for the crust. That was a very, very long process, so even if I have to make an Oreo crust now, it won’t be a problem, because I have four options for chopping up Oreos: a blender, mini food chopper, mini food processor or regular food processor.
Even after we all went out to dinner for my friend’s birthday and stuffed ourselves silly, we still managed to polish off the entire amount of Oreo pie. In fact, I had to fight off a few people to make sure the birthday girl even got a piece of her birthday pie! Even today, I make sure she gets a piece of Oreo pie whenever I make some…and of course my husband, because he is an Oreo fanatic as well…but I certainly can’t blame him. Oreo desserts always turn out delicious!!
