Oreo Cookies – a favorite. I rarely eat purchased cookies. However, I make an exception when it comes to Oreo’s. When I was in 8th grade, I went on a class trip to Nabisco’s Oreo factory. I saw giant vats of Oreo cookie dough being made into Oreo cookies. MMM. I thought it was the coolest thing ever. At the end of the tour, we each got a bag full of Nabisco cookies and crackers. Two whole packages of Oreo’s were in the bag. The ride on the bus back to school got very loud as everyone’s Oreo Cookie – Sugar High – kicked in.

How To Make the Oreo Crust:
This crust is so easy. Crush up about 24 Oreos in a food processor for a traditional size pie plate. I love pie plates and have about 15 different ones. Most of them are the larger deep dish or 10 inch size. If you are using a 10 inch size or deep dish pie plate you will need another 10 to 12 Oreos.
No food processor, no problem. Put the oreo’s in a heavy duty bag and smash them with a rolling pin or mallet. Don’t remove the centers from the cookies. The centers are the yummy part and help to glue the crumbs together.
Add the butter and mix together. Press the crumbs into a pie plate and flatten with your fingers or a glass. Freeze for 10 minutes before filling. If you want a crunchy crust bake at 350-degrees F. for 8 minutes.
