My first attempt at a "healthy-ish" cookie pie for my son's second birthday. The results were...interesting!
Ingredients
  • 1-2 bags of oreo-type chocolate sandwich cookies
  • 4 tbsp butter (1/2 a stick)
  • 2 cups vanilla yogurt
  • 2 cups plain yogurt
  • whipped cream
Instructions
  1. CRUST:
  2. Put 10 cookies in a thick plastic baggie and seal well. Beat with a large spoon or mallet (kids love this!)
  3. Melt butter in a deep glass or ceramic pie pan in microwave.
  4. Add cookie crumbles, mix thoroughly. Press into bottom and sides of pie pan.
  5. FILLING:
  6. Put 15 more cookies into a thick plastic baggie and beat with a large spoon. Set aside.
  7. In a large bowl, mix together plain and vanilla yogurt, then mix in cookie crumbs.
  8. Pour into pie pan, on top of crust.
  9. Freeze for 2 hours or until hardened.
  10. TOPPING:
  11. Crush a few more cookies and set aside.
  12. Top with whipped cream, then sprinkle with cookie crumbles.
  13. Add whole cookies for decoration if you like.
Notes
This is a test recipe, and definitely not perfect! My observations after trying it are to:
Grind cookies down into a powder for a crust. (They were too thick and chunky from crushing them in a bag, though it was fun!)
Use all vanilla yogurt or at least ¾.
Use less cookies.
