Mile High Cookies & Cream Pie Recipe

Mile High Cookies & Cream Pie Recipe
Although pumpkin and apple pies are traditional for Thanksgiving dessert, it’s nice to have a variety of other pies, especially when there is a big crowd. The possibilities are endless, of course, and my family Thanksgiving dinners always included pecan, lemon, chocolate, and cherry cream. This last minute Mile High Cookies & Cream Pie is a great possibility, since it is quick and easy to prepare, doesn’t require any baking, and is deliciously light.
Although the pie is very light, it is also very rich, so slices should be very small. That is not to say, however, that guests won’t want seconds; there will most likely be no leftovers.

12 Servings

2 cups chocolate cookie crumbs
3 tablespoons sugar
5 tablespoons melted butter

1 1/4 cups heavy cream

1 1/2 8 oz. packages softened cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla

26 chocolate sandwich cookies (such as Oreo®)
  1. Crust: Mix the crust ingredients and press into a 9" glass pie plate; refrigerate while making the filling.
  2. Filling:Pour the heavy cream into a large mixing bowl; beat until the cream holds stiff peaks; transfer to another container.
  3. In the same bowl, cream the softened cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla until light; fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.
  4. Place 22 of the chocolate sandwich cookies in a zip-type bag. Seal and hit with a rolling pin until the cookies are coarsely crushed.
  5. Fold into the cream mixture and pour into the refrigerated crust.
  6. Break the remaining four sandwich cookies in half and place on the pie for garnish.
  7. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least two hours or up to 24 hours.
