Delicious! Only thing I might do differently next time would be to increase the recipe by 1/4 or 1/3. The crumbs were a little big and I was lazy about getting it spread evenly over the pie plate and had a few thin spots. Made for a Turtle Cheesecake Pie. YUM!

Great easy pie crust. I used with a no-bake chocolate cheesecake.

Thank you! This recipe worked out great for my DD#2's bday ice cream pie. I made it in a 9x13 (as you can see in the pic). I doubled the recipe.

This was exactly what I was looking for. I couldn't find a premade oreo crust at the store. I used a food processor to make the crumbs. I think my favorite part of my pie was the crust.

This recipe saved me at 3am. I realized that I didn't have have a ready-made graham cracker or cookie crumb crust for Hershey Pie (#29084). I also didn't have any graham crackers! However, I did have Halloween Oreos...and used them to prepare the crust. It worked well (and it was Thanksgiving, so the bits of orange in the crust weren't totally out of season). Thanks for a life-saver.

Hmmm...I don't know, this didn't really work for me. I think maybe my crumbs were too large, to which I would suggest that one always use the food processor and not crush the cookies with a rolling pin. My crust was just too crumbly and very difficult to form into the pie dish. It also did not seem to make enough; I still had little holes in the bottom that I had to crush a few more oreos to fill. Had it just been a crust judging contest, it may have lost, but once it was with the pie, the holes were not a problem. I think, however, that if you are a "crust" person who likes a more pronounced crust flavour and crunch, this is not the recipe for you. It definately, though, as ms_bold said, would be a more than decent substitution if you did not have graham crackers or a graham cracker crust.
