Mint Oreo Brownie Pie

No-Bake Mint Chocolate Oreo Pie // bethcakes.com
A few months ago, I took a little trip down to Destin with some other bloggers and journalists to experience all the best gulf to table food in town. (More on this tomorrow!) The first night there, we had an incredible dinner at the restaurant in the bed and breakfast where we stayed, and although the trip was mostly seafood-focused, we also ended up ordering dessert almost everywhere we went.

And y’all know how I feel about dessert.

After dinner everyone was all, “No, no, we’re so full. No desserts for us.” But you know how it goes. Waiters start listing things off the menu and you start thinking, “Huh.” And then they say something about mint Oreo pie and you say, “Oh yes, I’ll have that.”

And that is how everyone on the trip learned about my Oreo obsession on the very first night. 🙂

So we all ended up ordering dessert and passing things around the table to sample. Banana cream pie, ice cream, Key lime pie. It was all fantastic, but Oreos will always be my fave.

I knew immediately that I’d have to recreate this pie once I got home and I finally got around to it. It ended up being pretty different from the one at the restaurant. I decided to amp up the crust because let’s be real, the crust is always one of the best parts. This one is made of Oreo crumbs, a little flour, baking soda, and an egg white, so it baked up a little bit like a brownie/cookie. Pie crust GOALS.

The layers are made of pudding, cream cheese, and homemade whipped cream. I originally played with the idea of making homemade pudding/pastry cream, but that’s not something I’ve mastered and I haven’t had as much time for bloggin’ recently. So the no-fail method was the way to go, and I’m so happy with how it turned out!

This pie is *almost* no-bake, and no-bake desserts are always a favorite for me in the summers. Many more to come! 🙂

Mint Chocolate Oreo Pie
 
Ingredients
oreo cookie crust
  • 2 cups Oreo crumbs
  • ½ cup butter, melted
  • ⅓ cup all purpose four
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg white
chocolate, white chocolate, and mint filling
  • 8-oz block cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 box instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 box instant white chocolate pudding mix
  • 3 cups milk, divided
  • 2½ cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp mint extract
  • green food coloring (optional)
  • 1½ cups Oreo crumbs
  • chocolate sauce (optional)
Instructions
for the crust
  1. Preheat oven to 350*F and coat a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray.
  2. Combine Oreo crumbs (I just processed about half a package of Oreos in a food processor), butter, flour, baking soda, and egg white. Mix until combined.
  3. Press dough into the bottom of the springform pan. Set the pan on a sheet of aluminum foil and fold foil up the sides. (To prevent anything from leaking into your oven while baking!)
  4. Bake for 15 minutes or until set in the center. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
for the filling (sorry in advance - you need a lot of bowls!)
  1. In one bowl, beat cream cheese on medium-high speed with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add powdered sugar and vanilla extract; mix well.
  2. In two separate bowls, whisk together each pudding mix and 1½ cups milk. Transfer to the fridge to set and thicken.
  3. While the pudding is thickening, beat heavy cream on high speed (with the whisk attachment if you're using a stand mixer) until stiff peaks form. Remove about ½ cup and place in the fridge. (This will be using to decorate the top of the pie later!)
  4. Remove pudding from fridge and whisk well. Fold half of cream cheese mixture into each pudding. Fold half of whipped cream into each pudding.
  5. Divide the white chocolate pudding in half. Whisk in mint extract and a small dab of green food coloring to one half.
  6. Spread half of chocolate filling over the cooled crust. Top with alternating dollops of white chocolate filling and mint filling. Cover with Oreo crumbs. Dollop with remaining chocolate filling and spread smooth. Decorate the top of the pie with the reserved whipped cream and chocolate sauce if desired.
  7. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze 4-6 hours, or overnight. Let thaw slightly before serving!
