The Best Oreo Crust for Cheesecakes, Pies, and More

Oreo cookie crust is a must-have recipe for any home baker, and for good reason! It’s a 2-ingredient, 5-minute recipe that’s incredibly delicious and versatile. Oreo crust goes well with just about any cheesecake, pie, or ice cream pie you can imagine.

The recipe below is written for one 9″ pie pan, because that is an extremely common size for desserts with Oreo crusts. But what if you want to make a few mini cheesecakes? Or a large rectangular tart? How much of the Oreo cookie base will you need then?

🥧 Oreo Crust Recipe and Conversion Chart

Great news – this chart will help you figure out just how much crust you need, so you can customize a recipe for any pan or quantity!

I measured all of the most common pan types and sizes and weighed how much Oreo crust mix they required. To be clear, this is a general guide, and your mileage may vary depending on your specific pan, how thick you like to make your crust, etc. But, I hope you find it helpful as a starting point!

How to use this table

  1. Find the pan that most closely resembles the pan you will be using.
  2. Look at the information in the last column, “Recipe Card/yield.” This tells you what you need to input in the recipe card to get the perfect amount of crust.
  3. For instance, for an 8″ pie pan, you will need 0.75, or 3/4 of a batch. In the recipe card header, next to the word “Yield,” is a place for you to customize the amount. Input 0.75 in the box. The ingredient amounts you need will be automatically calculated for you!
  4. For miniature pies/tarts, the table will list how many of the mini desserts 1 batch will yield. Depending on the number of mini desserts you want to make, you can double or even triple the recipe to yield that many crusts. Use the customize button as described above, or the 1x / 2x / 3x boxes under the Ingredients header.
  5. Finally, because cheesecakes can be made with either a crust just on the bottom, or on the bottom and sides, both of those options are listed separately in the table.

  • Place the Oreos in the bowl of a food processor–no need to remove the cream filling. Process them in long bursts until they are very fine crumbs. (Alternatively, place them in a zip-top bag and roll over them with a rolling pin until very finely crushed.) You should end up with about 2 cups of cookie crumbs.
  • Place the butter in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 20-30 seconds, until fully melted.
  • Combine the cookie crumbs and melted butter and stir until well-combined. The mixture should have the texture of wet sand, and hold together a bit when you squeeze it between your fingers.
  • Press the crust evenly on the bottom and up the sides of a 9 x 1.5” pie plate. Bake at 350 F for 12-15 minutes, until puffed and fragrant. Let the crust cool completely before adding any filling.

Measuring Tips

Our recipes are developed using weight measurements, and we highly recommend using a kitchen scale for baking whenever possible. However, if you prefer to use cups, volume measurements are provided as well. PLEASE NOTE: the adage “8 oz = 1 cup” is NOT true when speaking about weight, so don’t be concerned if the measurements don’t fit this formula.

💡 Oreo Crumb FAQs  

How many Oreo cookies do I need to make 1 cup of Oreo cookie crumbs?

This is a very common question! For general reference, 20 finely ground Oreo cookies equal 1 cup of crumbs.

Should you remove the Oreo cream filling before crushing the cookies?

If you are using regular Oreos, you can leave the cream filling in the cookies. I recommend that you avoid using Double-Stuffed, Mega, or any variety of Oreo cookies with a supersized cream layer. Too much cream filling can make the crust too greasy. If that’s all that you have, you can either remove the filling from about half of the cookies, or use the cookies as-is and use much less butter. If you choose this route, start with a very small amount of butter and add it in gradually, keeping an eye on the texture the whole time.

What’s the fastest and easiest way to crush Oreos?

I like to use a food processor or place the crackers in a plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin. Check out my Easy Oreo Pie Crust Recipe post for more specific details.

Are crushed Oreos the same as Oreo cookie crumbs?

When talking about making a crust, crushed Oreos and Oreo cookie crumbs are the same. You are looking to crush Oreo cookies into a very fine crumb. The only time these terms might not be interchangeable is when you are using Oreo cookies as a mix-in (for ice cream or cookie bars, etc). As a mix-in, crushed Oreos could be larger, broken or bite-sized pieces of cookie.
