Recipe: Peppermint Pie

Posted by Nicole Doud on


I made this Peppermint Pie for Christmas this year and it was delicious! The original recipe is from Crazy for Crust (Find it here:


    • 1 9-inch Oreo Crust , store bought or homemade
    • 8 ounces (226g) cream cheese, softened
    • ⅓ cup (67g) granulated sugar
    •  ¼ teaspoon peppermint extract
    • 12 ounces (339g) whipped topping, divided
    • 5 drops Red Food Coloring
    • Crushed Candy Canes for garnish



  1. If using a homemade crust, chill until ready to fill.
  2. Add cream cheese and sugar to a large bowl and beat with a hand or a stand mixer until smooth. Mix in peppermint extract.
  3. Add 8 ounces whipped topping and mix on low speed until fluffy. Add food coloring and mix slowly until entire mixture is a light pink.
  4. Pour cream cheese mixture into pie crust. Spread to fill and then cover and chill at least 1 hour.
  5. Before serving, decorate the top of the pie with the remaining 4 ounces whipped topping and sprinkle with crushed candy canes.
  6. Store loosely covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze for up to a month.
