Recipe: No-Bake Oreo Cream Cheese Pie

This recipe for my No-Bake Oreo Cream Cheese Pie is a variation of the No-Bake Cream Cheese Pie I’ve been making for … well … let’s see…. about 20 years…. geesh… time flies…. well anyway…. It came from one of those recipes that they stick on the back of the label for Ready Crusts…. and for some strange reason has disappeared from just about everywhere it seems... except my recipe file…

Most no-bake pies that use cream cheese … do not use sour cream… and I LOVE sour cream…. the sour cream is what makes this recipe special… it balances the sweetness of the cream cheese with its wonderful tangy flavor.

I know this recipe isn’t rocket science… it’s quick… it’s easy… and it’s delicious… I have been making this and adding various ingredients to change it up a bit… and I have to say… I haven’t had one that disappointed.

This is one of those recipes you can throw together for unexpected company in no time…. I always seem to have these ingredients on hand…. so that makes it really easy…and it’s a kids favorite… okay… who am I kidding… adults love it too.

I used a graham cracker crust because I didn’t have a chocolate crust on hand… both types work well. The filling piles high in the crust… if you like smaller pieces (I know… what am I nuts for asking?)…. You can use the extra large Ready Crust…


To make crumbling the Oreo cookies easier…. use a mini food processor… and do it in batches so you don’t make Oreo dust.

I used the lite version of Cool Whip …. The recipe works well with it and you can cut fat and calories without compromising the recipe… I’ve tried the non-fat version before and unfortunately I think it takes away from the taste… but that’s a personal preference… you can use any type you prefer.

Need this to set-up in a hurry?…. Place the covered pie in the freezer for about a half hour or until set and then refrigerate….

It looks great... I've had this (or a version of) for years... Have to chuckle at the idea of cutting back a few calories with "lite" topping.

Chuckle away.... that's the difference between men and women... women will do whatever it takes to slim down a recipe... remember... a moment on the lips...forever on the hips... men on the other hand... figure ...what the hell... and make it with anything they have including things with more calories... my other half is the same way... I'm chuckling now too!

So chuckle away :P

Hello.. I havent tryed any of your recipes but the one you have for the oreo creamcheese pie sounds similar to my own homemade recipe.. Maybe you could try it out and give your thoughts about how it was.. I use the oreo ready pie crust, 1 1/2 packages of cream cheese, 3/4 of a cup of sugar, 1 container of cool whip, and 1 regular package of double stuffed oreos.. Make sure the cream cheese is soft; using a fork mash the sugar into the cream cheese untill it appears to be disolved; next i use a big zip lock baggy and i put most of the oreos into the baggy; saving about 10 for later.. (might have to do it twice using only half at a time) i crush the oreos untill they are very small.. You can make them any size you prefer.. I mix all of the crushed oreos into the cream cheese untill its mixed well; last i mix in the whole container of cool whip and fill the pie crust just over the top and smooth it out.. I use the last 10 oreos for the topping.. Crush them the same way, but leave some bigger chunks so it looks pretty and sprinkle them on top! Refridgerate 30 mins. And its ready to be served.. Ive made this pie for just about every occasion and have never had any complaints.. Let me know what you think!! -miranda
