Do you have a May birthday? Probably, it seems like May is a popular month to give birth. That being said, neither of my children were born in May, nor were Kristen and myself. But! Our other halves were, with only one day between.
Instead of making a birthday cake, I opted for this cookies and cream pie. Mike doesn’t have much of a sweet tooth but he’s always down for anything cookies and cream, I really couldn’t go wrong with this one. Mike’s bias aside, this was a hit! Maybe a little too good if that’s possible. I would definitely recommend making this when there will be lots of people to share with! You won’t want to share, trust me.

This was super easy to make but does take some time, the crust has to chill for an hour before putting the filling in it, then the filling has to chill for an hour before placing the whip cream on top and serving, so just be sure to give your self enough time. I made everything but the whip cream topping the day before and then quickly made the topping before we ate it.
What you need:
- 9 inch pie pan
- 24 Oreos
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 1 bar softened cream cheese
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 24 roughly chopped Oreos
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 1/3 cup sugar
- Hot fudge (I just used chocolate sauce)
- 5 Oreos
What you do:
- Blend Oreos in a food processor until you have fine crumbs
- In a medium mixing bowl, mix crumbs and melted butter until well combined
- Press your mixture evenly into your pie pan, covering the bottom and sides.
- Place crust in the fridge for at least one hour before filling
- Beat whipping cream until you get stiff peaks
- In another bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until blended
- Add whipping cream, fold until smooth
- Stir in Oreos
- Pour into pie crust and place in fridge for at least an hour
- Beat until stiff peaks form
- Spread whipped cream over the top of your pie
- Place Oreos in the center of pie
- drizzle chocolate sauce over pie
**For your crust: you can add more butter to the Oreos, they just need to stick together, I should have used a bit more. The butter exploded a little, when I was melting it in the microwave so I probably lost a bit in there.
** In my filling, I didn’t read the roughly chopped part of the ingredients and blended the Oreos in the food processor (literally noticed it as I’m typing this post… when will I learn to read) the filling was great without having the chunks and having the bits instead
