French Silk Pie Cookies Ingredients

Let’s break down the role of each ingredient in your French Silk Pie Cookies recipe:

French Silk Pie Cookies Recipe Ingredients

For the Cookie Base:

  1. 10 Oreos: These act as the main structure of the cookie base, providing a delicious and crunchy texture reminiscent of a pie crust.
  2. 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour: This is the primary structure of the cookie, giving it body and substance.
  3. 1 tablespoon cornstarch: Cornstarch makes the cookie tender and gives it a melt-in-your-mouth texture.
  4. ¼ cup dark cocoa powder: Enhances the chocolate flavor, giving depth and richness to the cookies.
  5. ½ teaspoon baking soda: Acts as a leavening agent, allowing the cookies to rise and become fluffy.
  6. ¼ teaspoon baking powder: Another leavening agent that helps the cookies puff up slightly.
  7. ¼ teaspoon salt: Balances the sweetness and enhances the overall flavor of the cookie.
  8. ½ cup brown sugar: Adds sweetness, moisture, and also contributes to a slightly chewy texture because of the molasses content.
  9. 1 egg: Provides structure and moisture, acting as a binding agent in the cookie dough.
  10. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract: Imparts a sweet aroma and flavor, complementing the chocolate.

For the Chocolate Silk Filling:

  1. 2 tablespoons chocolate pudding mix: Acts as a thickener and flavor base for the filling, ensuring a creamy texture.
  2. ½ cup milk: Combines with the pudding mix to create the desired consistency and adds moisture.
  3. ¾ cup heavy cream: When whipped, it gives the filling a light, airy texture and adds richness.
  4. ¼ cup powdered sugar: Sweetens the filling and its fine texture ensures a smooth consistency.
  5. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract: Enhances the overall flavor profile of the filling.
  6. 3 tablespoons chocolate chips, melted: Provides a deep chocolate flavor and a velvety texture to the filling.

Whipped Cream:

  • Used as a topping, this adds a creamy, light contrast to the rich chocolate filling and crunchy cookie base. The ingredients typically include heavy cream (for body and richness), vanilla extract (for flavor), and some form of sugar (for sweetness).

Why This Recipe Works

This recipe brings together basic ingredients, most of which might already be part of your pantry or are readily available at the grocery store. The winning contrast between the rich chocolate mousse and the crumbly cookie base ensures an indulgent bite every time. Moreover, by sidestepping raw eggs, commonly found in the original French Silk Pie recipe, we offer a safer yet equally tantalizing version.

  1. Can I use regular Oreos instead of chocolate Oreo cookies? Regular oreos can serve as a delightful alternative to chocolate oreos.
  2. Why avoid raw eggs in this French Silk Pie Cookies recipe? Omitting raw eggs provides a safer eating experience, especially for children and expecting mothers.
  3. Is there a difference between black cocoa powder and natural cocoa powder? Indeed, while black cocoa powder has a deeper, richer profile, natural cocoa powder offers a milder taste.

Tips and Tricks

  • Opt for room temperature butter for seamless mixing and richer cookies.
  • Prioritize high-quality chocolate chips to enhance the chocolatey depth.
  • Chocolate curls or shavings can elevate the presentation, making your cookies look as good as they taste.


  • Nutty Delight: Introduce a crunchy layer of crushed nuts of your choice.
  • Cheesy Magic: Incorporate cream cheese in the chocolate mousse for added creaminess.
  • Peanut Butter Twist: Peanut butter swirled in the chocolate mousse lends an unexpected yet delightful flavor.

Where to Serve

These elegantly crafted cookies fit seamlessly into any special event, from birthdays and anniversaries to a relaxed weekend treat.

Storage Tips

Using an air-tight container is key to retaining the freshness of these cookies. If you’ve added a frosting layer, refrigerate them, ensuring they’re consumed within 2-3 days.

Common Problems and Their Solutions

  • Cookies Spreading Too Thin: Chilled cookie dough balls hold their shape better during baking.
  • Lumpy Chocolate Mousse: A smooth mousse can be achieved by blending the cooled chocolate mixture with an electric mixer on medium-high speed.

These amazing french silk pie cookies are so good and delicious!


  • 10 oreos
  • 1 ¼ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • ¼ cup dark cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Chocolate silk filling
  • 2 tablespoons chocolate pudding mix
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips, melted
  • Whipped Cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a food processor or blender, add the oreos and pulse until finely crushed.
  3. In a mixing bowl add the crushed oreos, cocoa powder, flour, cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Whisk together these dry ingredients.
  4. In a separate bowl, add the softened butter, sugars, egg and vanilla extract. Mix together until creamy.
  5. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredient bowl and fold everything together until a cookie dough forms.
  6. Use a scooper to create large cookie dough balls and place on the parchment covered baking sheet about 2 inches apart from each other. Flatten slightly.
  7. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
  8. While the cookies are baking, make the whipped filling. Add the milk, heavy cream, pudding mix, powdered sugar, vanilla and melted chocolate in a bowl all at once.
  9. Use a hand mixer to blend on low to medium speed until the chocolate mixture becomes a thick cream.
  10. When the cookies are done baking, immediately use the bottom of a cup or measuring cup to flatten the center of each cookie. This creates a divot for the pie-like filling to sit in later. Let them cool for 15 minutes.
  11. Once the cookies aren’t too hot anymore, scoop a large spoonful of the chocolate cream filling in the center of each cookie.
  12. Top each with a squirt of whipped cream and enjoy!
