Oreo Pie Crust Recipe FAQs

Can I make this pie crust gluten-free?

Yes! You certainly can. Simply substitute with a gluten-free cookie and follow the same exact directions. You can use Gluten-Free Oreos, Kinnikinnick KinniToos, Trader Joe’s Gluten-Free Joe-Joe’s, and Glutino’s Chocolate Vanilla Creme Cookies. All of these are vegan-friendly, too.

I don’t like chocolate Oreos. Is there another option I can use for this crust?

Actually, you can use any type of cookie you like! The ratio of “dry” cookie crumbles and vegan butter is what’s most important. Feel free to try baking some of our vegan cookie recipes and using any leftovers for a pie crust!

Is it possible to make this crust ahead of time? How do I store the crust until I’m ready to use it?

Yes, this crust can be made up to 3 months ahead of time. If you have a pie pan that you don’t mind keeping in the freezer, this is a great way to have crust ready and waiting for any occasion. You can also prepare the crust, wrap tightly in plastic wrap, and keep it in the fridge for 2-3 days.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Chill Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Servings 16 slices

Equipment

  • food processor or ziploc bag with rolling pin
  • 8" Springform Pan or 9" pie plate
  • Plastic Wrap or kitchen cloth for covering crust while it chills

Ingredients

  • 1 14.3 ounce package Oreos, or nutter butters, or any vegan cream filled sandwich cookies
  • ½ cup vegan butter, at room temperature

Instructions

  • In the bowl of a food processor, combine the whole package of cookies and the vegan butter. Process until thoroughly combined.
  • Line a springform pan (8 inches wide × 3½ inches deep) with parchment paper. To do so, cut one piece of parchment to the size of the bottom of the pan, and cut another strip to wrap around the sides.
  • Using your hands, evenly press the cookie mixture into a thin layer on the bottom of the pan.
  • Cover tightly with plastic wrap and let chill in the fridge for at least 15 minutes or overnight. When needed, remove the plastic wrap, add pie filling, and bake (or chill) as directed.

Notes

  • If making a vegan ice cream cake, use this presentation tip – “If presentation is important and you want clean lines, then pop the bottom layer of vanilla ice cream back into the freezer to firm up before adding the next layer of ice cream on top.” —Emily R.
  • If sensitive or allergic to gluten, substitute with gluten-free sandwich cookies.
  • You can freeze the crust for up to 3 months by carefully wrapping in plastic wrap and adding to a freezer safe bag or container. Allow to thaw in the fridge overnight.
