This is one of my favorite pies to bake. It is always a hit when I take it anywhere or have people over. Always have everyone asking for the recipe. I usually make several and give everyone some to take home.

I scrape out the oreo cookies and use those for the cookies. Or you can buy the chocolate wafer cookies and use those.

When I was short on time or had a broken food processor, I used the store bought ready made chocolate crust. The pie still came out good, but not as good as the home made crust.
