Lemon Icebox Pie with a Golden Oreo Crust

There is nothing simpler than an icebox pie.  Mix, pour, freeze and enjoy.  My kids and I loved making (and eating!) this pie.  They especially loved making the crust out of Oreos :).
I recommend you make this one day in advance and then when you’re ready to serve, pop it out of the freezer, slice and enjoy.
This makes one 9 inch pie.  

Shopping List
about 1 1/2 cups of crushed Golden Oreos (about 12 or so Oreos)
6 tablespoons of melted butter
1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese, softened
1 (14 oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
the zest and juice of 2 lemons (about 4 tablespoons or so of juice and 3 or 4 of zest)
Lightly spray a pie plate with cooking spray.  Set aside.
To make the crust:
Crumble your Oreos directly over your food processor.  Pulse the crumbled Oreos until they are fine.  Add in your melted butter and pulse until it’s all combined.  Remove the mixture and pat it inside the pie plate.  Make sure you pat it up the sides as well as across the bottom.  Freeze about one hour before filling.
To make the filling:
Beat with an electric mixer your cream cheese, condensed milk, lemon zest and lemon juice together until combined.  Pour lemon mixture into pie shell (after it’s been in the freezer an hour).  Cover and freeze at least 4 hours (up to 24).
When you’re ready to serve, remove from freezer and slice and serve.
A little bite of sunshine in every single bite.

    I'm sorry … this is probably a really dumb question – should I use just the cookie part of the Oreo or does the creamy part go in too?

    Crumble the entire Oreo into your food processor! Enjoy šŸ™‚

    When I was around K's age, my grandma showed me a recipe I could make (mostly) by myself. Chocolate Oreo pie crust, filled with Pistachio Instant Pudding by Jello. Over the years, I've tweaked it repeatedly, combined different flavors, etc – and now that she's passed it's still one of the most-requested desserts at family gatherings! Reminds me of sweet (and easy) days from long ago! šŸ™‚
