Brits Directions:

Oreo Crust

  1. In a food processor fitted with the blade, pulse de-frosted Oreos until completely crumbled.
  2. Add in butter and brown sugar, pulse until everything is well mixed.
  3. Pour mixture into a 9” pie pan and press firmly around the bottom and sides until the mixture is well packed evenly around the pan.
  4. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
  5. Let cool completely before filling. You can chill it in the fridge to speed up the process.

Filling

  1. Soften the gelatin by pouring it in a bowl with the cold water, let sit.
  2. In a small saucepan, heat ½ c. of heavy whipping cream and 1 c. of crushed peppermint candy on medium low heat until the candy dissolves, stirring every few minutes. Remove from heat and then add the gelatin water, vanilla, and peppermint extract to the hot mixture and whisk to combine, set aside at room temperature to cool, but do not allow it to cool and set completely yet.
  3. Whip the remaining 1 ½ c. of heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form and then gently fold the peppermint mixture, and remaining ½ c. crushed peppermint candy into the whipped cream.
  4. Pour filling into the Oreo crust and spread evenly.
  5. Allow to set completely before garnishing and serving. About 2 hours in the fridge.

Topping

  1. Beat the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla together until stiff peaks form.
  2. Garnish the top with the whipped cream and sprinkled crushed candy.
