No-Bake Cookie Butter Pie
I've never had cookie butter in my life. I'm giving you a minute to let that sink in.
Is it a new phenomenon? I wonder. It's possible its not; we weren't really a house of peanut butter and nutella and the like. "Chazerai," my mother would call it. That's 'junk food' in Yiddish. Chazerai indeed. She isn't wrong. Two slices of this pie and I could practically feel a pimple forming. You know what they say, beauty is pain. And they're right; a life without cookie butter is a life of pain.
Anyway, about a week ago I came into 5 jars of cookie butter. In the words of Dua Lipa, "one kiss it all it takes." I immediately started tinkering and behold, a star was born. Not Lady Gaga. Not even Barbara Streissand. No. My pie was the star.
I'll spare you the details but know this. This pie is five ingredients and it needs no baking. You need no skill - just time and patience. Want to show off? This pie is your new party trick. Happy "baking!"
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
16 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 cups cookie butter
2 cups confectioners sugar + more for dusting
chocolate syrup for drizzling
1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Generously grease a springform pan.
2. Place the oreos in a food processor and pulse until the cookie turns to fine crumbs. You should have about 2 cups of crumbs.
3. Place the melted butter in a small bowl and add the oreo crumbs. Use a spoon to combine them.
4. Use your hands to work the crumb mixture into the bottom of the springform pan. This will be your crust so you want to make sure it evenly coats the bottom of the pan. Transfer the pan to the preheated oven and bake for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes remove the pan from the oven and allow the crust to completely cool. The crust will harden as it cools.
5. While the crust cools prepare your filling. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the cream cheese and the cookie butter. Add the confectioners sugar, about 1/3 cup at a time.
6. Pour the filling into the springform pan and use a spatula to smooth the top. Cover with plastic wrap and allow the pie to set in the fridge at least 12 hours, up to overnight.
7. When ready to serve drizzle with chocolate sauce and dust with confectioners sugar.
