My wonderful husband C’s birthday is next week so this weekend’s dessert is just for him!  He is not a big sweet eater, but he loves his Oreo cookies!  Instead of a birthday cake, he gets a birthday pie…Oreo Pie to be exact.  This is a combination of a couple of recipes that I put together.  I hope he likes it, and I hope you do, too.  You can use a bought Oreo pie crust if you absolutely have to, but a homemade one is SO MUCH BETTER!  It is worth the extra few minutes. Oh, and this recipe will make 2 pies.


1 lb package Oreo cookies (reserve about 6 cookies)

1 stick unsalted butter, melted

8oz cream cheese, room temperature

1/2 cup sugar

8 oz Cool Whip

2 4-serving packages instant chocolate pudding mix

3 cups cold milk


In a food processor, chop cookies until they are fine crumbs.  Combine the cookie crumbs with the melted butter.  Pour half of the mixture into each pie plate and press into the bottom and up the sides to form your crust.  I use a piece of wax paper to do this so it doesn’t stick to my hands.  Chill for 2 hours.

In a large mixing bowl, mix cream cheese and sugar with an electric mixer until completely combined.  Add half of the Cool Whip and stir together.  Spread half of mixture onto each pie crust.

In another large mixing bowl, add the 2 pudding mixes and the milk.  Whisk for 2 minutes or until the pudding starts to thicken.  Refrigerate for about 5 minutes and then spread half over each cream cheese/Cool Whip layer.

Top the pies with the remaining Cool Whip and spread to coat the pudding layer.  One of my pie plates is bigger than the other, so I let the pudding mix show on the biggest pie.  Complete by crumbling the remaining cookies over the top of each pie.  Refrigerate before and after serving.

Easy Fruit Cobbler

Yes, I have more frozen strawberries to use.  There are only so many smoothies a girl can drink.  This is a quick, easy, DELICIOUS way to use a pint of berries, and it is also great with peaches or blackberries.


1 stick unsalted butter

1 cup self rising flour

1 cup sugar

1 cup milk

1 pint frozen strawberries, thawed & drained


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place butter in a small casserole dish and melt in the warm oven.

In a large mixing bowl, add flour, sugar, and milk.  Whisk to combine.


Pour flour mixture directly into the casserole dish with melted butter, then add the strawberries.  There is no need to stir.  Put the dish back in the oven and bake for one hour.  Cool for about 15 minutes and enjoy!  See, wasn’t that easy?
