Ice Cream Pie

This is a super easy dessert to make just for fun to share. There are countless options with this one in regards to ice cream and so many types of Oreo cookies these days to choose from. Pick your favorite combo! Below I have listed a few ideas to get you thinking about it. I’m generally not a cool whip gal but it doesn’t melt easily so that’s why it works well for this ice cream pie. Having the ice cream and whip cream melt would be a mess so it just holds together better with cool whip. If your looking for an easy dessert for your 4th of July celebration give it a whirl!


2 cups classic Oreo cookies

1/2 cup butter, melted

Ice cream (cookies and cream, mint chocolate chip, chocolate and rocky road are all options)

Cool whip


2 cups golden Oreo cookies

1/2 cup butter, melted

Ice cream ideas: strawberry, peach, birthday cake or butter pecan

Cool whip


  • You will need a pie plate; the cookie crust will just be thicker with an 8 in pie plate vs a 12 in pie plate so whatever you have on hand should work great.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Crush Oreo cookies in a food processor until finely ground or use the rolling pin method.
  • Put crushed cookies in a medium bowl and mix well with melted butter. Press into bottom and sides of pie plate in a nice, even layer and bake 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees.
  • Allow pie crust to cool completely. Scoop ice cream of choice to fill pie plate and smooth top.
  • Spoon cool whip over the top to cover generously or just a few dollops around the edges (up to you).
  • You can add toppings as well at this time, for example, with a cookies and cream ice cream pie, add chopped Oreos. For a peaches and cream ice cream pie, add sliced peaches. For a 4th of July spin, top a strawberries and cream ice cream pie with sliced strawberries and blueberries! 
  • That’s it! After freezing about an hour or two, slice and serve.
