Orange Dream Ice Cream Pie

Orange Dream Ice Cream Pie

The other day, I remembered a pie a friend of mine taught me to make many years ago. Of course, over the years, I’ve changed the recipe a bit, made it better. However, you are going to be thrilled with just how easy this ice cream pie is to make and how perfect it is for summer.

In theory, you could use any flavor of sorbet you’d like. I prefer the taste of the orange and chocolate mixture in this pie, but feel free to experiment a bit. I did see one recipe over on Pillsbury where they used a regular pie crust and they layered different flavors of sorbet for a rainbow effect. It looked pretty yummy.

  • 1/2 gallon orange sorbet
  • 1 tub of Cool Whip you can use fat free or sugar free if you'd like, but sorbet has a high sugar content
  • 1 package of regular Oreos chocolate
  • 1 stick of butter
  • Candy sprinkles or shaved chocolate
  • 1 pie pan
  1. Twist Oreos apart and remove cream filling.
  2. Place non-iced cookies into a plastic baggie, zip the top closed. I use approximately 25 whole cookies minus the filling, but you may need to adjust this if your pie plate is larger than mine.
  3. Use a rubber mallet to crush the heck out of those cookies.
  4. Melt 1/4 cup butter
  5. Pour crushed cookies into a bowl and add melted butter. Stir together until it forms a little ball.
  6. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 20 minutes.
  7. Place cookie/butter mixture in pie pan and press into place to form a crust.
  8. Allow sorbet to sit out for about 15-20 minutes and begin to soften and melt. Also allow the Cool Whip to sit out at the same time.
  9. Scoop the sorbet into the pie crust shell and spread out evenly to within 1/2 inch from the top of the pie pan.
  10. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for 30 min
  11. Add Cool Whip to the top and smooth out or fluff into mounds.
  12. Add sprinkles to the top, cover and return to freezer until ready to serve
