What could you do to improve Oreos and Ice Cream? Add butter and Cool Whip, that's what. For variety you can vary the type of ice cream, try coffee, chocolate, mint-chip, whatever you like. I don't think I need to spend any words here convincing you that this is tasty so I will cut to the important stuff.
When you are making this pie, the crust will work much better if you press it very firmly using a tool. I usually have my husband do this for me and he usually uses a flat-bottomed bowl to press the Oreo crumbs into the pan. If you skip this step then the crust will not cut when you try to remove it, but, don't worry, it will still taste good.
