This Oreo Dessert Pie has a rich Oreo crust and is topped with homemade vanilla ice cream and drizzled with salted caramel sauce.
Every year my husband's family packs up and heads somewhere for our annual family reunion. This year the adults got to have our own family reunion in Hawaii, but now it's time for the kids to join us. This year we are heading to a mountain retreat in Brianhead, Utah.
The cousins are getting excited. With Grandma and Grandpa moving away this year and a couple of the cousins moving away, our central meetup spot has changed and we see less of each other. As the week's grow nearer my kids are getting more and more excited.
Mom and Dad (aka Grandma and Grandpa) are in charge of breakfast's, everyone is on their own for lunch and dinner assignments are divided up among us kids.
This year I wanted something easy and simple to serve for our night and this Oreo Dessert Pie is it. How could you go wrong with homemade vanilla ice cream, an Oreo crust and salted caramel sauce?
My sister in law was diagnosed with celiac this past year, so this was one of those easy adaptable recipes. KToos offers a gluten free chocolate cookie brand that tastes great. I'm planning on making her a small batch with the KToos for the crumb crust.
You could also use a storebought pie crust to save time but we love a homemade Oreo crust. You could also buy storebought ice cream or salted caramel sauce, but that's up to you too. It's great whether you use storebought or homemade.
You can also try our homemade versions:
No Thermometer Salted Caramel Sauce
This Oreo dessert pie is delicious with vanilla ice cream, crushed oreos and salted caramel sauce. The perfect treat on a hot summer day!
- 1 package Oreos
- 2-4 tbsp melted butter
- ½ gallon vanilla ice cream, softened
- ½ cup salted caramel sauce
- In a food processor, pulse grind the Oreos until crushed. Add butter one tablespoon at a time until crumbs begin to stick together. How much you crush your Oreos is entirely up to you. I like coarsely crushed, my husband likes finely crushed Oreos for pies.
- Pour the Oreos into a 9 inch pie pan and press until firm. Freeze for 1 hour.
- Pour the softened ice cream into the pie pan and spread. If using homemade ice cream, I typically just stop the ice cream maker when soft set (about 45 minutes in the ice cream maker) and pour the ice cream into the pan.
- Wrap pie with plastic wrap then aluminum foil and freeze for several hours or overnight until set.
- When ready to serve, unwrap and allow pie to sit at room temperature for several minutes to soften before cutting. Drizzle salted caramel sauce over each slice.
*Use mint chocolate chip ice cream for a fun variation. * KToos from Kinnikinnick Foods offers a gluten free Oreo cookie version if you need this recipe to be gluten free.

Looks really good. I bet it would be good with a cream cheese mixture too.
Looks and sounds delicious!
Thank you for sharing this post at City of Creative Dream's City of Links on Friday! I appreciate you taking the time to party with me. Hope to see you again this week 🙂
YUMMO! Hi, I popped over because I saw this dessert highlighted and linked on 'What About Co'. Glad I did because I can see a few fab things here I'll have to come back to browse through.
I reckon I can make an allergy friendly version of this (we've got allergies to manage, sigh) with soy or coconut ice-cream and coconut fat caramel sauce.. Worth a try!
I'm almost positive that you could do this easily with coconut ice cream and coconut caramel sauce. My only word of caution would be that coconut milk ice cream has a strong coconut flavor to it and it might over power the taste of the chocolate. Try it and let me know how it works. You've now got me thinking on how to make an allergy free version. 🙂 So sorry about the allergies. I know it's tough coming up with meals and foods to eat. (My dad had food allergies and we were always changing our diet growing up). If you ever need substitutions for any of our recipes, please let me know. Have a great weekend!
