Pie for Pi Day! Oreo Crust Triple Layer Chocolate Pie…

Oreo Crust Triple Layer Chocolate Pie
Happy 3.14159265359.. Day! I’m not normally nerdy enough to celebrate the day (let’s be real now, the true reason I don’t celebrate is because I actually don’t love pie – minus Pearl’s summer blueberry pie… two and a half months away from my tummy). I don’t love desserts and I rarely bake because I don’t like to measure things, which generally causes a disaster in baking. But my team at work celebrates the day so I felt obliged to participate. I decided to make a no-bake pie to minimize failure.

Oreo Crust Triple Layer Chocolate Pie
This recipe is super duper easy. All you need is:

  • 32 oreos ish (if someone steals one or two while you’re cooking, you’ll live)
  • two packs of JELL-O Chocolate Flavor Instant Pudding & Pie Filling
  • half a stick of butter (melted)
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 1 8 oz. tub of Cool Whip (go with extra creamy)

As I don’t bake very often, I don’t have any of the right tools. I read online that it’s easiest to crush oreo cookies in a food processor but why would I have one of those when I have knife and hammer skills? As you can see, I laid out Oreos in a ziplock bag and hammered them into crumbs. A lack of resources inspires innovation, guys. Do as you like as long as you break the cookies up.

Throw in most of the Oreo crumbs into a 9-inch pie plate. Save a small handful of the crumbs for later.

Meanwhile… DO NOT FOLLOW THE JELL-O BOX INSTRUCTIONS. We ain’t makin’ jell-o here. Pour 2 cups of cold milk into a large bowl and mix in the two packs of jell-o mix.

The pudding should be pretty thick. Spread about 2/3 of the pudding onto the crust.
