Prep Time
Total Time
Serves: 16
  • 1 pack whole Oreos
  • 4 tbsp butter, melted
  • ¾ cup creamy peanut butter
  • 8 oz reduced fat cream cheese, softened
  • 6 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 16 oz Cool Whip, thawed
Orange Ganache
  • 6 oz semi-sweet chocolate
  • 3 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 tsp Grand Marnier
  1. Place Oreos in a food processor, pulse until they become fine crumbs and set aside in a separate bowl.
  2. Brush a 10-inch springform pan with some of the melted butter and then add the rest to the Oreo crumbs, stirring with a fork until combined.
  3. Evenly press Oreo mixture into the bottom and ¾ up the sides of pan; bake at 350℉ for 6 to 8 minutes, or until set.
  4. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
  1. In a large bowl using a hand mixer beat peanut butter, softened cream cheese, and sugar until smooth.
  2. Add in the thawed Cool Whip and continue to beat mixture until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  3. Once filling has come together, spoon into the cooled crust, and evenly spread with an offset spatula.
  4. Chill for at least an hour before topping with orange ganache.

  5. Return completed pie to the refrigerator and chill for at least two hours—it’s worth the wait.
