Ingredients
For the crust:
  • 25 Oreo cookies
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted
For the filling:
  • ⅔ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 oz unsweetened baking chocolate, plus more for topping
  • ⅓ cup butter, softened
  • 1½ cups heavy cream
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 4-6 Oreo cookies, crumbled, for topping
Directions
  1. Make the crust: Add Oreo cookies to food processor. Process cookies to fine crumb (alternatively, you can place the cookies in a resealable plastic bag and bang/roll with a rolling pin to a fine crumb). Transfer cookies to a medium bowl. Add butter. Stir mixture with fork until well combined.
  2. Press crumb mixture evenly into bottom and sides of 9-inch pie plate. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in small saucepan over medium heat, whisk sugar and eggs until mixture reads 160 degrees F with an instant-read thermometer. Remove from heat; stir in baking chocolate until smooth. Cool slightly, about 5 minutes, then stir in butter until melted. Cool mixture until just warm, stirring occasionally.
  4. In large bowl, beat heavy cream with electric hand mixer until soft peaks form. Add powdered sugar; beat mixture until stiff peaks form.
  5. Carefully fold half of whipped cream into cooled chocolate mixture. Pour filling into chilled pie crust. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours to set. Cover bowl with remaining whipped cream and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  6. When ready to serve, spoon and spread whipped cream in a heap on top of chilled pie. Garnish with grated extra baking chocolate and crumbled Oreo cookies. Store leftovers covered in refrigerator.
