This pie has an irresistible cool and creamy texture. In addition to the peppermint, there’s also melted white chocolate added to the filling. Peppermint and white chocolate are such a great combination.

No-bake pies make really easy make-ahead holiday desserts. This one is especially easy because it makes use of a store-bought oreo crust.

There’s plenty of peppermint flavor in this pie, but it isn’t overpowering.

How far in advance can this no-bake dessert be made?

You need to make it at least 2 hours in advance so it has time to set up. You can make it up the 48 hours in advance. Note: If you are pressed for time, you can place it in the freezer for 30 minutes to firm it up.

If covered well with plastic wrap, leftovers will keep in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

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.
