Creamy Oreo Pie

December 9, 2008
When more posts fill up the space, it’s only natural for the older one’s to sit in the archive until someone really digs deep. But when something is as good as the Creamy Oreo Pie, I just had to post about it again.


I’d like to think of this creamy oreo pie as a no-bake cheesecake. A crumbly oreo crust and ooey-goooey-creamy-cheesy filling. And I’m not exaggerating. There is nothing that matches up to this, especially if you are an Oreo lover. Nothing. In fact, you will wonder how Oreos could possibly be THIS good when whipped up with cream and cheese. This is a fool proof recipe that I’ve tried several times and you just can’t mess it up! Once you’ve tried it, you’re going to keep coming back to it.
And you thought you had to work hard for the perfect dessert?

Personally, this is not something I want to eat with all the chatter over a dinner table but something I want to experience in my own company. Just me and the creamy oreo pie – one tiny bite at a time; savouring the sweet, creamy filling against the crisp, crumbly crust – Nirvana. Sis, take a cue – after this is the best time for you to ask me for my Tommy Hilfiger tote or Charles and Keith pumps. You will always get an affirmative reply.

Now that you’ve made yourself a positively rich and decadent dessert, you need to enjoy this without any distractions. Cut yourself a slice and pick your favourite spot. With each bite, feel the textures. Feel the taste. Feel the opulence.
I made the pie and hid it at the back of the fridge to keep my grandmum from offering  it to relatives who drop in. And that’s how I enjoyed it for the next couple of days, once slice at a time.

    Yum! The problem with this one is that I could sit with a spoon and just dip and dip and dip. Dangerous!

    Oh my, that looks decadently sinful! :P But what a great way to spend your days a slice at a time :)

    RecipeGirl: I have the same problem. I keep telling myself that that’s the last bite, but havne’t been successful. I always ending up taking several “last” bites. Hehe

    Ovenhaven: Coming for a girl who has an aversion for cheese – I’m flattered! :D

    That seems like the best pie in the world! I want a piece just by hearing you talk about it… and with Oreos too? I’m off to buy some cream cheese!

    Chocolate shavings: Let me know when you’ve made it! I love your blog. Esp the choc truffles!

    Court: I can imagine my 4 year old cousin secretly liking the dish when I’m not looking.

    Cakespy: It tastes even better than it looks! :D

    wow! pretty photos! :)

    Wanna hear something funny? I don’t like oreos not unless they are used in a dessert! On their own, yuck but mixed with things like cream cheese or added to a batter then I’m all over it!

  • Reply Shaheen December 11, 2008 at 9:21 AM

    Thanks Meg, Hillay and Pearl!

    Ingrid: Now that’s new! But I do agree with you. Oreo undergo a transformation when they are made into desserts!

    Shoot, I’d post about Oreos every opportunity I got, if I had a great recipe like that! Thanks for reminding us about the easy deliciousness that is the O-R-E-O (Nabisco, Ding)!

    Oh wow! this is definitely a must try

  • Reply Jamie October 23, 2009 at 10:38 PM

    It looks absolutely decadent and you are right – this is not something to share but rather to sit o one's own and savor.

    Hi, I made this fairly recently and forgot to comment :)
    I made it for some of my fellow marching band friends at one of our pre-game parties… everyone LOVED it :) I kept getting jealous glances from people who hadn't gotten any, haha. Definitely an awesome recipe!

    Hey Erin! Thanks for reporting back! I'm so happy to know people loved it. Yay!

  • Reply Priyanka November 17, 2009 at 11:47 AM

    Wow.. These look salvinating-ly yummy :)
    Just one question though – where do you get cream cheese in Mumbai? I am fairly new to the city. Any delicattesen in Bandra?

  • Reply Priyanka November 17, 2009 at 12:36 PM

    Thanks a ton! A trip to Irla it is. I am glad I found your blog. Going through your archives right now. All thanks to cream cheese! :)

  • Reply The Purple Foodie November 17, 2009 at 12:06 PM

    Hey Priyanka! You would find this at Godrej Nature's Basket in Bandra. However, it's a little pricey there so I recommend that you make a trip to Alfa in Irla (Vile Parle) to buy the slab of cream cheese. You can stock up on other things while you're here as well. For more on where to find ingredients in the city check the FAQs on the About page.
