Creamy, crunchy, and sweet. This Oreo pudding pie will be the star at the end of a delicious dinner. The thick vanilla pudding mixed with Cool Whip and crushed Oreo cookies is frozen into the perfect dessert treat. Make in 7 minutes, and freeze for 12 hours.
This dessert! It’s become our new favorite. Mainly because it’s delicious. But also because I can whip it together in minutes and then freeze it to enjoy later. Think, the big game. I already have one of these frozen in my freezer and it’s ready to go! Hooray, for make ahead desserts!
This is again one of those recipes I found in my grandma’s recipe box, and I knew it would be a hit. Oreo cookies are just good, but balanced with the sweet, creamy vanilla pudding takes them to the next level. It reminds me of my favorite treat in the summer when we go to our local dairy bar and enjoy an Oreo flurry.

Other Things to Know About Oreo Pie
I only recommend using name brands when it comes making this recipe. These are all suggestions based on my experience with this recipe.
- Jell-O Brand Instant Pudding – In the past, I have found that off-brand Jell-O has a different taste, like when it came to Lemon Lush.
- Oreo Cookies – Again, purchasing the more expensive brand does make a difference in taste and texture. The brand name Oreos have a more crispy texture.
- Cool Whip – In terms of Cool Whip, I like the ease of it. However, homemade whipped cream would work just as well with this recipe. To balance the sweetness, you’ll need to add some sugar to the whipped cream.
How Can You Change Up this Recipe?
- Food coloring to make the pie festive. Green would be perfect for St. Patrick’s Day!
- Chocolate pudding in place of vanilla pudding would be delicious for all you chocolate lovers.
- Change up the Oreo cookies to different flavors. Mint and pumpkin come to mind as options that would work with vanilla pudding.
- When serving, drizzle with chocolate syrup!
Oreo Pie FAQ
You will need 12 whole original Oreo cookies to make one cup of the crushed cookies.
To make course and large crushed Oreo cookies, place them in sealed plastic bag. Carefully bang rolling pin on top of the bagged Oreo cookies until they reach your desired size. Using a food processor will also yield crushed Oreo cookies with a finer texture.
How to serve: Let the frozen pie warm up on the kitchen counter for 20 minutes. Take a sharp knife and run it under hot water to warm the knife. Use the warm knife to cut your Oreo pie slices.
How to store leftovers: Once you’ve sliced the pie into individual pieces to serve, place the leftovers back in the freezer to enjoy at a later date. Covered, the Oreo pie will last in the freezer for up to 3 months.
