Cookies and Cream Pie (without oreos!)


The pie you’re peeping at just isn’t the primary, not the second, however in actual fact the THIRD cookies and cream pie I made final week. Let me clarify.

The primary model I caught with custom – Oreo cookie crust, Oreo crumbles folded into the filling. The second model I wished to check out a cookie free crust possibility for you, however I nonetheless used cookies within the filling and the crust simply wasn’t fairly as cookie-ish as I wished. (Pause. Regroup. Decide a pie lane.) For the third model, I made a decision to lean into unconventional, hasn’t-already-been-done-on-the-internet territory, and drop the cookies fully. Although I do know Oreos are vegan (and might be gluten-free), I KNOW you’ve seen a dairy-free Oreo pie recipe earlier than. So it’s not that we don’t love Oreos, it’s not that Oreo pie isn’t scrumptious, it’s can we make a Cookies and Cream Pie with out them…

Oreo Pie…However With out Oreos?

We will! That’s the brief reply. We will make a wealthy, fluffy, intensely cookie-vibes pie with no single sandwich cookie. The 2 key cookie copycat components you want are cereal and Chocolate SunButter. However let’s get into the entire ingredient lineup.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Crumb Crust Substances

  • Crispy rice cereal. I haven’t examined with other forms of cereal, however I like the lightness of crispy rice cereal. You would attempt a flake or a sq. and even granola, however toasted brown rice is my go-to. A chocolate selection will add much more taste.
  • Darkish cocoa powder. Okay okay it is a little particular, however if you need the deep darkish Oreo-chocolate shade darkish cocoa is vital. Common cocoa powder will style completely high quality, that is extra of an aesthetic choice.
  • Chocolate SunButter. the creamy, chocolatey, frosting-rich jar of magic I’ve raved about many occasions earlier than. Yeah, you want it right here. It provides a lot taste, and takes the place of coconut oil or butter in a typical Oreo crust.
  • Maple syrup. Or agave or your favourite liquid sweetener.
  • Pinch of salt.

Dairy-Free Cream Filling Substances

  • Dairy-free cream cheese. The luxurious texture, the delicate tang, the right thick-when-chilled texture makes this the very best no-bake filling base. And tastes significantly better than a cashew primarily based filling for my part.
  • Coconut cream. An excessive amount of cream cheese can be nicely…an excessive amount of. So for the remainder of the creamy part we’re utilizing coconut cream from a calming can of full fats coconut milk. You would additionally attempt dairy-free yogurt, however ensure it’s a thick one not watery.
  • Chocolate SunButter. Yeah that’s proper, we’re doubling up on these things. Belief me, a delicate contact of chocolate taste within the CREAM a part of the cookies and cream is an improve it is advisable to expertise.
  • Powdered sugar. I do know it’s not essentially the most pure of sweeteners, however it’s the finest sweetener for preserving the thickness of this no-bake filling. You would attempt granulated sugar as a substitute, however I can not assure your pie will set correctly.
  • Vanilla extract.

Suggestions For The Excellent Vegan Cookies and Cream Pie

  1. Grind the cereal VERY high quality earlier than including the remainder of the crust components. An Oreo crust has a really high quality grain to it, so to imitate that you simply don’t need any large chunks.
  2. Save one cup of crust crumbs for the filling and topping (and even make additional if you need numerous COOKIE in your cookies and cream!)
  3. Refrigerate in a single day to verify the filling is totally set earlier than slicing. I prefer it served proper out of the fridge, as chilly and thick as attainable. You may even freeze this recipe for a extra ice cream pie expertise.
  4. High with coconut whipped cream, drizzles of melted chocolate or Chocolate SunButter, chocolate chips, extra “cookie” crumbs, something chocolately your coronary heart needs!
