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.
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.
