* 1 package (39 cookies) Oreo cookies.
* 1/2 cup melted butter

Reserve two tablespoons for the garnish when you are finished, then pour in your 1/2 cup of butter while processing.
Drop a couple of scoops of the Oreo crumbs you've made into 4 oz jars. Use your fingers to press from the middle to the outer edges to form your pie crust, leaving a hole in the middle for the filling.
Put your jar with newly formed pie crust into the freezer for half an hour, allowing them to firm up a bit before adding your filling to them.
Now, after removing your pie crust from the freezer, go ahead and 'spoon in' your filling that you've mixed together.
If the pie crusts are frozen, the crumbs won't stick to the filling as it is spread around.
And lastly, take those couple of tablespoons that you reserved and sprinkle it over the top of the filling for an added touch of garnish.
Now THAT is a tasty treat!
