Who doesn’t love a good ice cream pie? And when you make it with an Oreo cookie crust, it’s just that much better. This recipe is perfect for a hot summer day or a sweet treat after dinner. Plus, it’s easy to make and can be customized with your favorite ice cream flavor. Let’s get started!
- 1 package of Oreo cookies
- 1/4 cup of melted butter
- 1.5 quarts of your favorite ice cream
- Whipped cream (optional)
- Additional toppings (optional)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
- In a food processor, pulse the Oreo cookies until they are fine crumbs.
- Mix the Oreo crumbs with the melted butter in a bowl until it resembles wet sand.
- Press the Oreo crumb mixture into a 9-inch pie dish, making sure it is evenly distributed on the bottom and up the sides.
- Bake the crust for 10 minutes and then let it cool completely.
- Once the crust is cooled, take the ice cream out of the freezer and let it soften for a few minutes.
- Scoop the softened ice cream into the cooled Oreo crust, spreading it out evenly.
- Place the pie in the freezer for at least 2 hours, or until the ice cream is completely frozen.
- When ready to serve, top with whipped cream and additional toppings if desired.

If you want to make this recipe even easier, you can skip making the crust from scratch and use a store-bought Oreo cookie crust instead. You can also experiment with different ice cream flavors and toppings to make this recipe your own.
Another tip is to let the ice cream soften just enough so that it is easy to scoop into the crust, but not so much that it becomes melted and runny. And make sure to let the pie freeze for at least 2 hours, or until the ice cream is completely frozen, before serving.
Lastly, if you want to make this recipe a little fancier, you can drizzle chocolate sauce or caramel sauce over the top of the pie before serving. Enjoy!
