“I found this recipe on the internet shortly after Al Gore invented it. It was a restaurant recipe that made four pies so I reduced it down to one pie. So easy to prepare and totally yummy. I served it to my father and one of his friends and they loved it. Make it the day before so it freezes hard. This makes a big pie! Times do not include freezing.”
1 pie

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 Oreo cookie pie crust (baked in a 350* oven for 8 to 10 minutes)
  • 1 pint Orange sherbet, softened
  • 2 pints vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 12 Oreo cookies
  • 8 ounces Cool Whip
  • chocolate curls (to garnish)
  • Hershey's syrup (to garnish)
  • candied orange peel (to garnish)


  1. Mix one pint of sherbet with one pint of ice cream and spread over the crust.
  2. Spread rest of the ice cream over the second layer.
  3. 'Frost' with Cool Whip and press the cookies up on end around the edge of the pie.
  4. Freeze hard and then wrap in plastic wrap and freeze overnight.
  5. To Serve:.
  6. Let pie stand on the counter for 15 - 20 minutes before slicing with a serrated knife which has been dipped into hot water, wiping the blade between cuts. (Put the hot water in a tall glass or jar so the knife fits into it). If you are serving the entire pie, pile up chocolate curls on top. For serving a slice at a time, squirt some Hershey's syrup on a plate and set the slice on top of it and garnish with orange peel. Use a channel knife to get nice long strips.
