MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP CREAM PIE by Gordon Ramsay

MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP CREAM PIE


Mint Chocolate Chip Cream Pie is a creamy mint pie loaded with chocolate chips! This easy pie recipe has smooth mint cream filling mixed with chocolate chips & Andes mints all in an Oreo pie crust. Chocolate Mint lovers rejoice!

Mint Chocolate Chip Cream Pie recipeThis Mint Chip Cream Pie is a pudding based pie that is kept and served cold. The classic green color with mini chocolate chips will remind you of Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream with only a handful of ingredients, all inside of an Oreo crust! Today we are talking about pie though and no, this isn’t an ice cream pie. This pie is made with a pudding base. It is creamy, minty, and best of all, super easy to throw together! The entire pie only uses 7 ingredients… and that’s if you count the green food coloring!

Mint Chocolate Chip Desserts

There is just something so refreshing about the combination of chocolate and mint. It happens to be one of my absolute favorite combinations and if you are here visiting this recipe, I’ll just assume it is a favorite of yours too. Mint and chocolate come in all dessert forms, from Mint Chocolate chip cookies, Chocolate Cupcakes with Mint Frosting, Mint Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats to Mint Oreo Mousse Cups. See, proof I love all things chocolate and mint!

Mint Chip Pie is perfectly refreshing in the summer or make it for St Patrick’s Day! Many people love to make it around Christmas Time as well. Really, this pie is perfect at any time of year! I certainly don’t need an excuse to make (and eat) it!

Mint Chocolate Chip Cream Pie recipeWhat is in Mint Chip Cream Pie?

Like mentioned above, we only need a handful of easy ingredients for this pie. The one item you may not have is mint extract, but it is only a few dollars at the grocery store and a must purchase for this recipe.

  • Store Bought Oreo Crust- I like to purchase the pre made crust from the grocery store for convenience but you could definitely make your own if you’d like! Use 25 Oreos, crushed, and combine it with 5 tbsp of melted butter. Press it into your pie plate and chill.
  • Vanilla Pudding Mix- We will use the smaller box, 3.2 oz. Definitely use vanilla flavor, and we will be looking for the Instant Pudding!
  • Heavy Cream- To make the pudding thicker which makes the pie thicker and easier to slice, we will use heavy cream instead of the milk that is called for when generally making pudding.
  • Mint Extract- You’ll want mint extract, not peppermint. There is a difference, make sure you are using mint.
  • Frozen Whipped Topping- The whipped topping will need to be thawed before making this recipe. One 8 oz container is all you’ll need.
  • Green Food Coloring- This isn’t a requirement and won’t change the final taste of the pie, so if you’d rather not use the food coloring this is something you could skip out on.
  • Mini Chocolate Chips
  • Andes Mints Bits

Making this cream pie is very easy, just a little measuring and mixing is all. First, we will mix together the pudding mix with the heavy cream and mint extract with a whisk. Stir briskly, smoothing out any lumps before it sets up. Within a few minutes it will be very thick.

The next step is to mix the pudding into the whipped topping. You can fold it in or whisk it together, just mix until everything is combined and smooth. Now is the time to add in that food coloring. I used about 5 drops of green food coloring. Finally, fold in the mini chocolate chips.

Spread the pie filling into the pie crust and refrigerate for 3-4 hours before serving. Feel free to top the pie with the remaining whipped topping and sprinkle with Andes mints if desired.

Mint Chocolate Chip Cream Pie recipeHow to Store a pie

Storing a cream pie such as this one needs to be done in the refrigerator. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve and place back in the fridge immediately after serving. Keeping the pie out of the fridge for too long will result in a runny pie and one that is not safe for eating anymore.

Freezing pie

This pie freezes great! Freeze the entire pie or by the slice. To thaw a whole pie, place in the fridge for 24 hours before serving. To thaw just a slice, allow it to set on the counter for 15-20 minutes or until thawed.

APPLE PIE BARS – Butter with a Side of Bread by Gordon Ramsay

APPLE PIE BARS - Butter with a Side of Bread


Apple Pie Bars topped with a buttery crumble & drizzled with caramel for a fantastic take on a classic apple pie! Perfect baked apples recipe for a no-fuss alternative to apple pie. Apple pie bars are easier to make, simple to serve and everyone loves them!

Easy Apple Pie Bars recipe

Crumb topped apple pie bars are a delicious way to enjoy your favorite classic apple pie but in an easy-to-serve kind of way. With a simple and tasty crumb topping, it’s almost like a thin dutch apple pie slab, doesn’t that sound great?

With an apple slab pie, you can cut and serve so many pieces to give out to friends and families at parties and gatherings. It’s a million times more convenient than cutting and scooping out traditional pie slices (and much less messy too!)

Easy Apple Pie Bars recipe

Caramel Apple Slab Pie recipe

It turned into a delicious cross between apple crisp, apple pie, and my apple dessert bars. I used my favorite oatmeal pie crust as it makes this dish feel complete.

What Kind of Apples Should I Use?

You can use any apples, but specifically choosing harder and more tart baking apples like Granny Smith, HoneyCrisp or Pink Lady is a great idea. They’ll add a nice flavor of tang to offset the sweetness of everything else and will taste incredible!

Can I Use Quick Oats in this recipe?

Yes, you can. Just know that the quick oats have a slightly different texture than Old Fashioned rolled oats and will make the crust feel a little softer. Other than that, they’ll work great!

How to make Easy Apple Pie Bars recipeApple Pie Bars Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make this recipe:

-all-purpose flour: you can also use bread flour if you prefer!

-Old Fashioned oats:

-baking powder, salt, nutmeg, ground cinnamon: these are for adding flavor and leavening

-brown sugar

-shortening: the pie crust uses both shortening and butter for a fantastic blend of flavor and texture for the pie crust

-butter: you’ll use butter in both the pie crust that goes on the bottom of the pan as well as in the crumb topping. I prefer salted butter in this recipe!

-an egg, vinegar & ice water- helps the texture of the pie crust be amazing!

-about 7-8 apples, peeled, cored & sliced: see my notes about what apples are best above!

-chopped walnuts or pecans: such a delicious addition!

How to make Easy Apple Pie Bars recipeHow to Make Apple Pie Bars

Here’s how To Make The Pie Crust:

In a bowl, stir together the flour, oats, baking powder, salt and brown sugar. Cut in shortening. Add small pieces of butter while continuing to mix. {I just tossed it all in my Kitchenaid and mixed it using the whisk.}

In a liquid measuring cup, mix together the egg, vinegar, and enough ice water to measure 1 cup. Add to the flour mixture and mix well.

How to make the apple pie filling

Toss everything into a large bowl and stir to combine. I opted to add it all to a ziplock bag, closed it, then shook it around. It worked great! Let the apples sit in the fridge until you’re ready for them.

How to make the crumb topping

Combine all of the ingredients until crumbly using a pastry cutter, 2 forks, or whatever you think will work!

Easy Apple Pie Bars recipeHow To Assemble the Dessert:

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. While the oven is preheating, mix up the pie crust. Spray a 9×13 or 8×12 glass baking dish with cooking spray.

On a lightly floured surface, roll the pie crust dough into a 10-inch rectangle that’s about 1/4″ thick. Wrap it around the rolling pin and unroll it into the prepared baking pan.

Ease dough into the pan and up the sides. It sounds more difficult than it really is! Make adjustments around the edges of the crust by trimming from a too-long edge and filling in on a shorter edge. Make the crust go all the way up to the top of the sides as it will shrink down a bit after baking.

Take a fork and poke about 10 times along the bottom of the dish.

Bake the crust for 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned.

After crust is done with the preliminary baking, dump the apple mixture on top of the baked crust. Spread evenly. Sprinkle with Crumb Topping (pan will be full).

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until the apples are tender. If necessary to prevent over-browning, cover the top with foil for the last 5 to 10 minutes of baking. Cool slightly in pan on a wire rack. Top with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, caramel topping and serve.

How to Store Apple Slab Pie

Keep your apple pie in an airtight or sealed container in the fridge for up to 1 week. It’s best when eaten fresh, but tastes great warm or cold. You can always reheat a slice before eating too!

Can I Freeze Apple Slab Pie?

Yes, you could. If you have your slab pie in a freezer friendly container that is airtight, you can freeze your pie for up to 3 months! Just let it thaw overnight in the fridge and warm it up before serving. Yum!
