Creamy Oreo Pie

This weekend I invited both mine and Raaziq’s families over for iftaar. I’m kind of weird in that I get a thrill in cooking under pressure (although I do prefer to take my time in the kitchen), makes me feel like I’m on Ready, Steady, Cook! With Raaziq obviously attempting and executing the Ainsley Harriot pan-flip-hip-wiggle perfectly 🙂

On the menu was mushroom soup (my mother-in-laws bowl-lickingly divine recipe), butter bean and mutton curry with the choice of rice or flaky rooti (uh uhm…made from scratch…), prego steak and potato, roasted chunky veggies finished with a creamy sweetcorn topping and chicken fettuccini.

To treat my fabulous guests, I decided to give the Nabiscus Creamy Pie a swing…

Decadently Creamy Oreo Pie

Ingredients:

39 Oreo Cookies, divided
1/4 cup melted butter
240g Plain Cream Cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
2 cups whipped cream

Method:

Crush 26 of the cookies and mix with butter until well blended. Press this cookie mix firmly onto bottom and up the side of 23cm pie/tart dish. Pop this into the fridge while preparing filling.

Set aside 9 of the remaining cookies. Beat cream cheese and sugar in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Thereafter combine chopped cookies and the whipped cream; stir gently until well blended. Spoon into prepared crust.

Spooning the creamy oreo mixture onto the refridgerated base

Refrigerate at least 2 hours or until firm.

Decoration ideas: Halve remaining 4 cookies, place them upright on cut edges around center or edges of pie.

Tips: – To sweeten the cream, add 3/4 tsp vanilla essence before whipping it

– Pipe the mixture into the dish instead of spooning it to give it a neater presentation

The final product

Also when serving the pie, I would suggest adding a few strawberries or your choice of fruit to give bring another flavour to the plate or if you really have a serious sweet tooth you could even add some caramel. The great thing about the Creamy Oreo Pie is that you can play around with it in terms of additions and presentation.

Being a total strawberry addict – it was a no-brainer to opt this route. The burst of colour also added to the presentation

This recipe is definitely one to add to the recipe file as it is quite versatile – the perfect addition to any occasion from a simple dinner party to a kiddies birthday. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on this recipe and for you to give it a go.
