Jell-O No Bake Oreo Dessert Review

America’s Favorite Sandwich Cookie in a Sinful Pie Form

What could be better than an Oreo cookie and a nice cold glass of milk? If you haven’t tried the Jell-O Oreo No Bake Dessert, you might be inclined to say nothing. With one taste of this luscious, creamy dessert the plain old cookie will never seem the same again.

Preparation

Jell-O No Bake recipes take just 15 minutes to make and only require two ingredients beyond the contents of the box. To make this recipe, add 4 tablespoons of butter to the Oreo crust mix and press it firmly into a pie plate covering the bottom and sides evenly.

Next, combine the contents of the filling packet with 1-1/3 cups of cold milk in a large bowl. Use an electric mixer to blend the ingredients for 30 seconds on low first, then for a full 3 minutes on medium. Once the filling is mixed, add half the contents of the Oreo cookie pieces, and gently fold into the filling mix. Spoon the mixture into the crust and refrigerate for one hour.

When ready to serve, top the pie with the remaining Oreo cookie pieces. For ease of serving, Jell-O suggests dipping the pie plate to the rim in warm water before cutting.

Taste

The dessert is an Oreo filling lovers dream. It’s light, airy, and tastes just like the filling of an Oreo cookie. The cookie pieces and crust balance out the sweetness of the filling. When making this dessert, be sure several other people will be around to eat it. Otherwise, it will call you from the refrigerator, and it can quite possibly be finished off in a 24-hour period. It is that good.

A serving size is considered 1/6 of the pie which is a very generous serving. The dessert’s calories as prepared with the added milk and butter is 370, with 150 calories from fat. Additional nutritional values are based on a preparation using 2% reduced fat milk.
