Ice Cream Pie with Oreo Crust

This Ice Cream Pie with Oreo Crust is the easiest summer dessert! It has a no bake oreo crust & an ice cream layer made with ice cream & cool whip!

Cut slices of ice cream pie topped with crushed oreos and melted peanut butter

Ice cream pie is the best ice cream dessert. It’s such an easy, yet impressive, dessert. It’s made ahead of time. And it’s delicious! Which makes it perfect for entertaining. Win, win, win!!

The ice cream layer is cool whip mixed with store-bought ice cream…

The key to an amazing ice cream pie: mix cool whip with store bought ice cream for the ice cream layer.

Most people just do ice cream.

But Cool whip + ice cream helps make sure the ice cream layer is super fluffy, creamy, and easy to cut into. It’s a game changer.

Note: Cool whip is essential. You can’t sub whipped cream. Whipped cream gets icy in the freezer. Cool whip stays soft.

I use a stand mixer with the paddle or whisk attachment to combine the cool whip and ice cream. But you can use a potato masher.

What kind of vanilla ice cream to use?

I get always Tillamook Vanilla Bean ever since watching this vanilla ice cream taste test.

How to make the peanut butter oreo combo in the photos:

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (plus 1/4 cup peanut butter to mix into the ice cream)
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips (about 6 ounces)
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream, DIVIDED (6 Tablespoons & 6 Tablespoons)
  • Plus ingredients in the recipe card

Note: You need a non-runny, regular peanut butter. A natural peanut butter won’t stay in place when you schmear it.

For the peanut butter chunks:

  • Line a baking sheet or plate (that will fit in your freezer) with parchment paper.
  • Drop 1 Tablespoon spoonfuls of peanut butter on a piece of parchment paper and schmear out with the back of a spoon to create flat pieces of peanut butter. Use 1/2 cup peanut butter total.
  • Place in the freezer.

For the white chocolate mousse:

  • Microwave 6 ounces white chocolate + 6 tablespoons of the heavy cream in 15 second intervals. Stir for 20-30 seconds in between each microwave session. (It usually takes me a total of 30 seconds to get it melted). Set aside to cool.
  • Once cooled, make the whipped cream. In an electric mixer using the whisk attachment, beat the remaining 6 Tablespoons of heavy cream on high until soft peaks form. Fold in the white chocolate/heavy cream mixture.

For the ice cream pie:

  • In a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, combine the ice cream, cool whip, and peanut butter. Fold in 6 chopped oreos.
  • Remove the peanut butter from the freezer and use a knife to get the peanut butter off the parchment paper. Drop the chunks into the ice cream.
  • Fold in the peanut butter chunks to the ice cream. Pour the ice cream into the prepared pie crust. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  • Remove pie from the freezer and spread white chocolate mousse in an even layer over the ice cream.
  • Chop up the remaining oreos. Top the pie with the remaining chopped oreos and/or melted peanut butter.
  • Tent with foil and place back into the freezer until ready to serve.
  • When ready to serve, cut into slices. Let sit on the counter for 10 minutes if the pie is too hard to cut into.

You can use a storebought oreo cookie crust to make it easier

I typically make my own oreo pie crust. But you can 100% use a storebought oreo crust to make this pie even easier.

But an oreo crust is simple to make if you can’t find a premade one! It’s no-bake and easy. You pulse 24 oreos into crumbs. Then stir in melted butter. Press into a pie dish and freeze!

How long do you have to freeze ice cream pie before serving?

This depends on how long your ice cream sat out while assembling. I would freeze at least 24 hours before serving to make sure the pie freezes all the way through.
