Oreo Peanut Butter Pie.
This oreo peanut butter pie is a dream! Oreo crust, no-bake peanut butter mousse filling and fresh whipped cream. Plus a few oreos and peanut butter cups on top. It’s absolutely delicious!
Oreo peanut butter pie is definitely the solution to all problems.
I mean, look at that! How could it not be? Peanut butter mousse on top of crunchy chocolate crust and cloud-like whipped cream. I can’t handle it!
I’ve been prepping all my recipes for the blog for summer already – for when the baby comes! And let’s just say that peanut butter oreo may be a verrrrry common theme. A few weeks ago I became obsessed with the combo and now I’m convinced it was meant to be because I had an oreo peanut butter milkshake last week. That has to mean something, right?!
Needless to say, I made this oreo version of my favorite peanut butter pie a few weeks ago and oh my gosh. It is heaven.
You may remember a few years ago when I shared Mother Lovett’s peanut butter pie! She made peanut butter pie with a classic pie crust – always. While I would normally gravitate towards a crumb crust of sorts – be it graham or oreo – her flakey, buttery pie crust was the base for hers.
It was mind blowing when I was a kid because the inside tasted just like a really good peanut butter cup.
I mean, SO GOOD.
But still, since I’m not a baker at heart, I always want a crumb crust. I am the person that would rather have bites of the crust than the actual pie. Especially an oreo crust! I’ve been making pies with oreo crusts since I was a tween and they are just a nostalgic, delicious treat.
Not to mention – the chocolate peanut butter combo!
There will NEVER be another flavor combination that I love more. It’s so classically rich and decadent, one I love so much. It is always the flavor I will choose.
That’s how I found myself here!
We have a crunchy oreo crust. A creamy, mousse-like peanut butter filling that is, of course, no bake. Just requires some chilling time in the fridge to set up perfectly.
I love to top this with unsweetened fresh whipped cream. I find that it cuts the sweetness of the pie filling perfectly and the light texture is great too. The only downside is that fresh whipped cream doesn’t stabilize too well, especially without any sugar. So if you want to take this somewhere or know you’ll have a lot of leftovers, you might want to go the Cool Whip route for topping. Yes I said it!
Finally, you can top things off with some crushed oreos and mini peanut butter cups. Oooooh they are dreamy. Adds on some more texture and flavor too.
It’s the perfect pie to make for any chocolate peanut butter lover! You can prep it ahead of time, top it right before serving and you’re good to go. EVERYONE FREAKS OVER IT.
Oreo Peanut Butter Pie
Oreo Peanut Butter Pie
- 20 oreo cookies
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
peanut butter filling
- 1 ½ cups cold heavy cream
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 ½ cups cold heavy cream
- crushed oreos, optional
- chopped peanut butter cups, optional
- Place the oreos in a food processor and blend and pulse until crumbs remain. Pour the crumbs into a bowl. Stir in the melted butter. Stir until all the oreo crumbs are moistened, then press into an 8-inch pie plate. Press on the bottom and up the sides, almost to the top. You want to try to get an even layer of crust. Pop the crust in the fridge or freezer while you make the filling.
peanut butter filling
- In a bowl, add the heavy cream and use a stand mixer or hand mixer to beat the cream until peaks form. Set it aside.
- In another bowl, use the same hand mixer (or stand mixer) and beat the cream cheese and peanut butter until combined and creamy. You want it fully combined. Beat in the powdered sugar and vanilla extract until combined. The mixture will almost be crumbly, like cookie-dough like.
- Beat in the whipped heavy cream. As the mixture combines, you will end up with a peanut butter mousse-like mixture. Transfer the mousse to the oreo pie crust and smooth out the top. Refrigerate for 4 to 6 hours, or even overnight.
- For topping, I love to use fresh whipped cream. It will not hold up well in heat, so if you want something that will last and hold up, I suggest a topping like Cool Whip that will hold its structure and not fall. To make the heavy cream, just add it to a bowl of your stand mixer and beat until peaks form. You can add in a few tablespoons of powdered sugar if you’d like it sweeter, but I actually prefer it unsweetened because the peanut butter filling is so sweet. If you use the fresh whipped cream, top right before serving. If you use the cool whip, you can throw on the topping a few hours before.
- Sprinkle on crushed oreos and peanut butter cups before serving. When not eating, store this pie in the fridge!

Definitely need to try this! My daughter has requested your Peanut Butter Brownie trifle for her birthday for the past 6 years and my favorite part is the peanut butter layer. A whole pie of just that? Yum!
I make this every Christmas. My family loves it
Would love to try this! Can this be prepared in advanced?
yes! it’s in the post and instructions.

Oooh this is right up my alley. My family has been putting peanut butter on Oreos since before I was born, and I’m 40. So our love for this divine combo goes way back!
Is it possibly to substitute the heavy cream with a plant based option like Oat Milk?
you can’t do oat milk, because it will not whip to stiff peaks like cream will. if anything, i suggest trying the so delicious coco whip in the container! you may just need to keep it refrigerated at all times and serve it immediately from the fridge.
Is it possible to keep it in the freezer for several days? And should I take out the filling in the oreos?
you can definitely store it in the freezer! i would not top it until it’s out of the freezer for good and you’re ready to serve.

Just made this!!! It’s in the freezer as I write. I must be using a smaller pie pan, as I had too much peanut butter filling. I now have a little tub of peanut butter yum in my freezer. Plan to sneak it every now and then! 😍 My consistency for the peanut butter filling was a little different, too. After adding confectioner’s sugar and vanilla, The consistency was quite creamy, and more like cake batter. I just double-checked my ingredient amounts, and I’m pretty sure I wasn’t off on anything. After adding the whipped cream, it was definitely mousse-like. And quite yummy! So I expect it to be fine for birthday dessert tonight! YUM!
Oreos and peanut butter is totally a thing!! I’ve been obsessed since I saw the Parent Trap (modern one with Lindsay Lohan) and the scene in the cabin when they discover they both love putting peanut butter on Oreos. I distinctly remember thinking “I should try that” as a child, so I did, and now it’s the best way to eat Oreos!!
Oooh, I’m thinking of a layer of jelly between the crust and the peanut butter mousse. If the peanut butter mousse can last long enough to get into the pie!!!

can you use a tart pan instead of a pie pan? afraid of the sides caving in when taking the outside of the tart pan off
This pie is SO delicious!! I made it for my family over the 4th of July weekend, and they all proclaimed it was one of the best pies they had ever tasted. Such a decadent treat but the whipped texture also felt light at the same time. Very easy to prepare. I will definitely be making this again!
This is definitely jumped all the way up to number 2 on the pie list right behind a cheesecake. Now if you want to call cheesecake a cake then number 1 but either way this is so simple to be so good. I could sit somewhere and eat a whole one by myself sick off of one of these. They are perfect for serving after a meal and like I said, it’s so simple to make, mix ingredients and stick it in the refrigerator to chill. By the time you’re done with your meal it’s ready or if you just have a sweet tooth, I promise this will take care of it in a hurry. If you are a peanut butter fan and/or an Oreo fan then you will love this pie because it’s a really good combination.
If you add a tablespoon of Wilton’s piping gel to the whipped cream topping once it’s nearly whipped, it will hold up longer. My preference over cool whip!
How much do I need to increase the recipe for 10 inch pie?
This has become my husband’s unofficial birthday pie! He’s not a big fan of cake so I love having something yummy to make for his bday. It’s so delicious and honestly not too hard to put together.
Will one container of Cool Whip be enough for the topping or should I get two just in case?
Came out so awesome!! Whole family loved it
I just gave this filling a whirl for a potluck and went to taste it; holy cow is it ever sweet… I was going to use it as a dip for pretzels and Graham crackers but I’m not sure I could use the crackers at this point without it being over the top sugar wise.
