Fully No-Bake Pie Crust
There are so many fabulous no-bake dessert recipes out there. They are perfect for when you are either short on time or it is too hot out to turn on the oven.
A lot of no-bake pies are built on crumb crusts. They are a great way to cradle the creamy fillings and they can add flavor too.
However, a lot of those crumb crust recipes require going in the oven for about 10 minutes to set. That sort of defeats the purpose of a no-bake filling.
So this recipe allows you to get a sturdy chocolate crust without turning on the oven. Just mix together Oreo crumbs and butter, form the crust, and chill it until it is firm.
It is really easy, the only heat you need is a few seconds in the microwave to melt the butter, and it tastes great. It is sturdy enough to be cut into pieces and lifted out of the pie without crumbling.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I use this recipe in a springform pan instead of a pie pan?
Yes! This recipe is perfect for a 9-inch springform pan as well as a deep dish pie plate.
Can I use other cookies?
Yes, you can use different flavors of Oreos or sandwich cookies. If you are using a cookie without a filling, like graham crackers or gingersnaps, you may want to add a little extra butter.
Tips and Tricks
I like using double stuf Oreos for that recipe. They are our favorites anyway and we get to enjoy what is left in the package.
While that is probably reason enough to go for the extra filling, that extra frosting also helps to hold the crust together. So more stuf equals more hold.
While we are on the subject, don’t scrape the filing out. Just toss the whole Oreos into the food processor and process into fine crumbs.
Make the the crumbs and butter are well mixed before you form the crust. Dry spots won’t hold together and you’ll have a hard time serving the pie.
The crumbs should feel like wet sand. Once it is well mixed, press them across the bottom and up the sides of the pan.
I like to use the bottom of a measuring cup or glass to help apply firm and even pressure. The more compacted the crust is, the better it will hold together.
Chill the pie crust while you are making the filling. That will give the butter a chance to set back up and will reduce the amount of crumbs that end up in your filling when you fill the pie.
No Bake Pie Filling Ideas:
Fill the crust with no bake peppermint cheesecake for a fabulous and festive treat. It is great for Christmas, but really is tasty any time.
A no bake banana cream pie would be delicious in an Oreo crust instead of a graham cracker crust. Chocolate and banana are a great flavor combination.
I have never tried a no bake key lime pie in a chocolate crust, but I have heard good things. It would be fun to try!
