A Sweet Shower Treat for Jenny’s New Addition!

[Please join me in a momentary pause from sandwiches and grilling for a sweet treat in honor of an even sweeter friend!]

A new baby boy is on the way for my friend Jenny, creator of the boundlessly creative blog, Picky Palate! A bunch of us are celebrating on our blogs today with a surprise virtual baby shower, hosted by Marla from Family Fresh Cooking and Amanda from Kevin and Amanda. Jenny, who is expecting son #3,  is waking up this morning to a shower of treats across the blogosphere – SURPRISE, Jenny!

Here's the invitation!

As I contemplated a dish to bring to the “party”, one idea just wouldn’t leave my head: I’m gonna stuff something with Oreos. Jenny is famous for her Oreo-Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe (hers is the original!) so for her baby shower I thought it would be fun to stuff mini Oreos inside some Baby Oreo Ice Cream Pies.

I enlisted the help of one of my own babies (it didn’t take much to convince a 4-1/2 year old to assist with cookies and ice cream) to assemble these incredibly easy, no-bake, frozen bites.

Crushing the Oreos
We started by crushing a whole bag’s worth of regular Oreos. Rolling over them with a rolling pin is fun, but if you have a food processor that’s actually a more effective tool for getting the cookies good and ground. The smaller the crumbs the better the crust holds together.

Stirring the Oreo crust

Next, we stirred in butter…

Pressing the crust into the pan

…and pressed the Oreo crust into the wells of our mini muffin pan. We didn’t need to bake the crusts at this point, but we did stick them into the freezer for about 30 minutes to get them nice and cold before we spooned in the ice cream.

Hiding the mini Oreos

We needed to let the ice cream soften a bit at room temperature in order to be able to spoon it into the crusts but that meant we had to work fast so it didn’t completely melt. My daughter let me take over with the ice cream, but she came back when it was time to press in the mini Oreos. I covered them up with more ice cream and back they went into the freezer while I made some whipped cream. The final step was to top each pie with whipped cream and another mini Oreo.

Oh my goodness, this was the best bon bon idea I’ve had in a while! I’d initially considered making these pies in a regular-sized muffin tin rather than the mini, but these baby-sized pies turned out to be just the right two-bite rich dessert. Besides, this is a party and there are a whole lot more fun dishes to share (with lots more Oreos in the mix too!):

Baby Oreo Ice Cream Pies

Prep time: 1 hour 20 minutes | Cook time: 0 minutes | Total time: 1 hour 20 minutes

Yield: 24 mini pies


  • 1 (15.5 ounce) package Oreo cookies (about 39 cookies)
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 cups vanilla ice cream
  • 48 mini Oreos, divided
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar


  1. Spray a 24-well mini muffin pan with baking spray.
  2. Grind the Oreos (not the minis) finely, either in a food processor or by sealing them in a large plastic bag and rolling over them with a rolling pin. The smaller the crumbs the better the cookie crust will hold together.
  3. Transfer the ground Oreos to a large bowl and mix in the butter until it’s well combined.
  4. Lightly fill each mini muffin well with the crust and press the crust into the bottom and the sides with your fingers. Transfer the pan to the freezer to chill and solidify for 30 minutes.
  5. Set out your ice cream at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes until it’s soft enough to spoon out. Working quickly, fill each pie crust about half full with ice cream, tuck in a mini Oreo and add more ice cream. Return the tray to the freezer.
  6. In a medium bowl, whip the cream and powdered sugar together with a wire whisk or electric mixer until stiff peaks form. Bring the pies out of the freezer, top each one with whipped cream and a mini Oreo for garnish.
  7. Freeze the pies for at least an hour before removing them from the tray and serving. NOTE: You may need to run a butter knife along the edges to coax out the pies.

  6. I had to ask my fiancé yesterday at lunch, as he stirred a pile of crushed oreos into his coffee milkshake, if Oreo [the company] realized when they started manufacturing them, if they knew that Oreo’s would indeed make *everything* better!

    Why are they so dang amazing?!

      And rather addictive! It was all I could do not to take a “one for the recipe, one for me” approach as we were making these pies! 🙂

      Hi Diane — They need to be served frozen because of the ice cream — ideally shouldn’t be put out more than a few minutes before serving. ~Kathy
