    Vegan Oreo Pie Recipe

    It may seem strange, but Nabisco's Oreos actually contain no dairy or animal-derived ingredients. They are not labeled "dairy-free," so they may contain trace ingredients of dairy from processing, so feel free to use another dairy-free wafer cookie, like Newman O's Wheat-Free Dairy-Free Cookies, which I used in the photograph!

    This pie can be served cold or even frozen; to add even more decadence to your cream pie, serve with a dollop of your favorite...MORE dairy-free vanilla soy ice cream!
