How to Make OreOMG Little Pies

This is an easy recipe for beginner cooks who want to make a delicious treat.

The good thing about this recipe is that it’s pretty flexible. You can add or remove like ingredients or change portions based on the number of cups your have available in your cup cake pan.

So let’s start with the ingredients.

36 Oreo cookies (1 package)

40-ounce container of creamy peanut butter — It’s important to note the deliberate specification of the peanut butter container…the size matters because you will be using the lid as a cookie cutter for the pie crusts.

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

2 tablespoons melted butter

2 refrigerated pie crusts — I like Pillsbury, and they normally have good coupons in the newspaper.

So first, you need to pull your pie crists out of the oven so they can get to room temperature. (It’s much easier to work with at room temperature) Next, you should preheat your oven to 350F.

Start by unrolling your pie crusts. Utilizing your peanut butter top, cut out as many 4 inch rounds as possible between your two crusts. Place one in the bottom of each of your cups in your cupcake pan. You can make it with the entire side covered with pie crust, or just the bottom. Either way is good.

Next, you’ll want to start adding about a teaspoon of peanut butter to the top of several Oreos. After you’ve completed enough to have two in each cup, you’ll need to start making stacks of two so that you have two portions of Oreos and two portions of peanut butter per stack.

After that, start placing the stacks in the pie crust-lined cups.

The next part is the most tedious. With the remaining pie crust, cut 1/4 inch strips to be used to top each pie. Use your own judgement as to length.

Place in a weave-like design on top of each pie. Dress with melted butter and sprinkle generously with granulated sugar.

Then comes the oven.

You can bake em for about 25 minutes and they should be ready to go. Make sure the tops are slightly browned. Let them cool before removing them from the pan.

They can be served alone or warm with a tiny scoop of ice cream to garnish.
