CANDY CANE PIE INGREDIENTS

  • Oreo pie crust
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • Two 8 oz cream cheese packages, softened
  • 10 drops red food coloring
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp peppermint extract
  • ½ cup peppermint candy canes or mints, crushed
  • 1 tub of Cool Whip
  • Crushed peppermint candy for decoration

NOTE: A ready to go Oreo crust serves as our base. I prefer picking mine up at the store because I’m all about saving my sanity, but you could also make it from scratch if you’d like.

HOW TO MAKE CANDY CANE PIE

In a medium bowl, cream together the powdered sugar and cream cheese.

      I made this today. Holy crap, it is really good. As a man that doesn’t make much of anything, everyone was quite impressed. It was a hit

    This is only my second visit to your site. I came back to copy a recipe and found this one as well. I already love your choice of recipes, so I know I’ll be back! This peppermint pie sounds delicious! I love peppermint ice cream on brownies with hot fudge topping. This has that chocolate and peppermint combination. I’m thinking I might have to have some fudge topping on hand to try drizzled over my slice. On the other hand, at the holidays, nothing could be prettier than just the peppermint filling and candy canes. I’m going shopping today, and I’ve added extract and candy canes to my list. Thank you!
