Easy Cold Brew Coffee Pie

This Cold Brew Coffee Pie is fantastic! Creamy, smooth and chilly with a chocolate cookie crust, a dreamy no-bake coffee filling and whipped cream. Easy, impressive and delicious! This Cold Brew Coffee Pie is so easy, smooth, creamy & addictive!

So I’m a cream-with-my-coffee kinda girl. Always have been, always will be.

It’s to the point where I actually carry mini coffee creamers with me when I travel. What? I love my coffee creamer! I dare Wayne Brady from Let’s Make A Deal to make a game out of what’s in my purse. I would so own him with my thimbles, spare change, hand sanitizer and coffee creamer. (Okay, maybe not a thimble… but if I ever went on the show, you bet your booty I’d be stocking up on thimbles).

So this pie is totally my bag. Not literally of course, but figuratively. Rather: this pie is my jam. No wait. This pie is my life? That’s more like it.

It’s so unapologetically creamy and dreamy and brimming with amazing coffee flavor. It tastes like a latte almost, with that slight milky undertone with that warm, aromatic coffee flavor. And of course, there’s a chocolate crust because chocolate + coffee = BFFs. Like the Rachel and Ryan of the food world (and yes, I’m still holding out for Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams to rekindle their love. I’LL WAIT FOREVER FOR YOU, RYRA.)

Making this pie is a cinch. Just whisk together some cold brew coffee, a little milk and some instant pudding mix into a bowl until it’s nice and thick. I also added in some Nielsen-Massey Pure Coffee Extract because I really wanted to drive home the coffee flavor. This extract is a total must-have if you want a delicious coffee flavor in your baked goods, and it really ramps up the flavor here.

Once the mixture is good and thick, fold in some Cool Whip. I know, some of you detest the stuff but man, there’s no substitute for it. It’s more stable than whipped cream so I like it for no-bake pies like this. Once it’s good and combined, pour it into the prepared Oreo pie crust.

This Cold Brew Coffee Pie is fantastic! Creamy, smooth and chilly with a chocolate cookie crust, a dreamy no-bake coffee filling and whipped cream. Easy, impressive and delicious! Then you must wait for it to chill. It’s excruciating, I know, but if you don’t let it chill, it will be a disastrous mess. Trust.

Once it’s sufficiently chilled, it’s time for EATING, Y’ALL. Pipe on some whipped cream if ya fancy, and add some dark chocolate-coated espresso beans for a fancy schmancy garnish. Voila!

Coffee lovahs, this one’s for you!

  1. Oh, how fun! Coffee and an oreo crust sound just perfect together – and it’s totally beautiful to serve too! Love it 🙂

  2. Coffee and oreo is such an amazing combo! The espresso beans on top are a really nice touch too!

  3. What would happen if I use unsweetened cold brew?? I make my own and I prefer it unsweetened. Thanks in advance.

    • thedomesticrebel says:

      Hi Ann! Nothing would happen – it may just be a little less sweet, but not by much 🙂 Hope you enjoy this!

  4. I live in australia and just have one question- what is cod brew?! Is this just coffee that has gone cold? Or the milky stuff you buy prepackaged?

    • thedomesticrebel says:

      Hi Emma! Cold brew is a coffee that’s steeped in cold water for a long period of time. If you don’t have cold brew coffee there (in the States it comes in bottles or cans), just use room temperature or cold regular coffee!

      • You can make cold brew with a french press. Use 3/4 cup coffee and 3 cups water. Allow to sit in a cold dry place for 18-24 hrs. Slowly push down the press to press grounds to the bottom. You have just made a cold brew concentrate. You can put can combine 1/3 cup concentrate to 2/3 cup whole milk to make an iced latte ( add a shot of vanilla or caramel syrup for sweetness) or 1/2 cup concentrate to 1/2 cup water to have an iced coffee black. This recipe is great with the concentrate. Rich coffee flavor.

      • Thank you……. I had the very same question!! Where I go to get my coffee is always Biggbys and they have just recently started selling cold brew, but I did not want to spend an extra $6 just to test out a little portion of it. I think what I will do is just use some of my dark roast regular coffee, because that already has such an intense flavor!!

  5. Hello Hayley, can I ask you where did you get those beautiful forks?

    • thedomesticrebel says:

      Hi Agne! I get my props at a variety of local stores (I live in Sacramento). Some places around here that I find them are: Not Too Shabby, Antique Trove, Hand Pickin’ Emporium, and ReFind, along with garage sales and things like that. Hope this helps! I suggest trying antique stores in your area, or second-hand stores sometimes have really cool old utensils.

  6. Is pure coffee extract something that you buy or make???

    • thedomesticrebel says:

      Hi Susan! I purchase it at Sur La Table, or another cooking store like that. I’ve also seen it at crafts stores, like Michael’s, Hobby Lobby, etc. The brand I love is Nielsen-Massey, but if you can’t find that, feel free to use coffee extract from the grocery store (either McCormick brand or JR Watkins brand at Walmart).

  7. Gwen McGill says:

    What is cool whip never heard of it in Scotland ?

    • thedomesticrebel says:

      Hi Gwen! Cool Whip is a stabilized whipped cream that is sold in the frozen section. If you can’t find it in Scotland, feel free to use 2 cups of whipped cream!

  8. How much sugar do you add to the 3/4 cup of cold brewed coffee?

    • thedomesticrebel says:

      Hi Chris, if you use an unsweetened cold brew coffee, that’s fine and the pie will be delicious either way! Otherwise, add 1/4 cup sugar.

  9. Oh my word I found this post at 12:30 am and want to get up and make it! I’m drooling it looks amazing. Other than the crust lol I’m not a fan of crusts I just eat the filling of pies alone.

    I would totally pop this in the freezer then top it with some chocolate syrup!

    • thedomesticrebel says:

      Cortney, it would be awesome with chocolate syrup! And my dad isn’t a fan of Oreo crusts, so he totally just ate the filling and gave my mom the crust, ha!

  10. I am dying to make this! One question though. Do you buy your cold brew from Starbucks or do they sell the Starbucks cold brew in grocery stores? Seems like they are always out of it at my Starbucks.

    • thedomesticrebel says:

      Hi Jessica, you can totally buy the cold brew coffee at Target or Walmart. I used Starbucks brand, but you could use any brand!

  11. doesnt cold brew (ice coffee??) have cream in it?

  12. What if you can’t find coffee extract anywhere!? Is there a substitute that I can use?

    • thedomesticrebel says:

      Hi Taylor! You can omit it and the pie will taste just fine. The extract just adds a richer flavor. Use a little vanilla extract in its place.

  13. Zoe Weiss says:

    Hi! I made this pie tonight, it’s currently in the freezer chilling (a painstaking step in the process) and I’m wondering 1.) Once I’ve kept it in the freezer overnight and I start to dig in tomorrow, do I put it back in the freezer or will the fridge be okay for storage?
    2.) Not that I’m planning on having much leftover, but how long will this pie keep?

    Thank you and I can’t wait to try it!

    • thedomesticrebel says:

      Hi Zoe, I know – the freezing part is the hardest part for sure 🙂 Keep it in the freezer because I fear it may become too soft in the fridge.

      • I just finished eating some!! So good. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
        Also maybe you have a tip for this too.
        I decided to make my own Oreo pie crust and I had a really hard time getting it out of the pie pan. It seemed to stick the to bottom. Any ideas on how to avoid this in the future?

  14. If I attempted to refridgerate it instead of freeze would it be a good consistency?

  15. what do you mean by sweetened coffee?

  16. I bought Chameleon concentrated cold brew coffee (not a single serve ready to drink bottle) to which the directions on the bottle say to add water or milk for a serving. Did you use a concentrated kind or is it the ready to drink already diluted kind?

    • thedomesticrebel says:

      Hi Lisa, I added a ready-to-drink kind. I’m assuming you should follow the directions on the cold brew coffee, prepare as stated, and then use it. Hope this helps!

  17. This was soooo good and only took me about 10 minutes, I even made the Oreo crust from scratch! I made three shots of espresso in the am and put it in the fridge for the cold brew, i didnt add sugar to the coffee because I think the cool whip is sweet enough. Also I didn’t have coffee extract so used kahlua instead, it got rave reviews! Thank you!

  18. You say use a 3.4 oz box of pudding but the large size is only 1.5 oz. how many boxes do you use. One large or 2 small?

    • Catherine says:

      Yes! This was my problem. I could only find .8 ounce boxes so used 4 of them. Bad idea! The pudding was so thick I could barely stir it after a while. It looks disgusting. Is it possible your measurements are off, domesticrebel?

      • thedomesticrebel says:

        Hi Catherine, the recipe calls for one 3.4oz box of instant pudding mix. Did you use the sugar free/fat free kind? Those usually come in smaller ounce sizes but I recommend the regular version for this pie.

  19. I like your format and the ease of printing the recipes HOW do I get your biog??

  20. Made this today….I couldn’t find coffee extract, but I followed the rest of the recipe to a tee…..and it ended up just tasting like caramel. Cannot taste the coffee at all.

  21. Can I use espresso coffee cold instead of cold brew coffee?
