No-Bake Peppermint Pie Recipe Tips:

  • Make sure your cream cheese is at room tempertture or close to it. Otherwise, it will be hard to get the lumps out of the filling.
  • Add a few drops of red or pink food coloring to the filling to give the pie a festive color.
  • Tastes best served with a dollop of Cool Whip or whipped cream.
  • If you want to make a homemade oreo crust, you will need 25 oreo cookies and 4 tablespoons of melted butter. Process the oreos in a food processor until finely ground. Mix with the melted butter and press into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate or 9-inch springform pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool completely before adding filling.
