Ingredients

Oreo Cookie Crust

  • 2 packages (6 ounces each) Oreo prepackaged pie crust
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted

Strawberry Bars

  • pounds strawberries, washed and hulled
  • ¼ cup water
  • 6 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 cans (14 ounces each) sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ tsp salt
  • pink or red food coloring, if desired

Whipped Topping

  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream
  • ¼ cup confectioners' sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a 9x13-inch baking dish with a layer of parchment paper.

Cookie Crust

  • In a small bowl, combine the Oreo cookie pie crusts and the butter gently with a fork. Press the crust into the bottom of the lined baking dish. Place in the freezer for 15 minutes as you prepare the strawberry filling.

Strawberry Bars

  • In a blender or food processor, puree strawberries and water until smooth. Add in eggs, sweetened condensed milk, and salt. Blend until very smooth. (Add food coloring now, if desired.)
  • Pour the mixture over the prepared Oreo cookie crust. Bake bars for 25 minutes. Keep an eye on them; you do not want the strawberry filling to turn brown on top.
  • Remove from oven and chill for a few hours before serving. When ready to serve, top with whipped topping.

Whipped Topping

  • Add heavy cream to a mixing bowl. Start mixing at the lowest speed, and then gradually increase speed to medium until the cream starts to get thicker. (The gradual progression prevents you from spraying yourself with cream.)
  • When the cream starts to thicken, stop the mixer. Slowly add in the confectioners' sugar and then resume mixing again, starting with low speed and increasing to medium speed, and eventually moving to a high speed.
  • The cream will thicken and start to peak. Mix on high until the cream is thick and stiff. This happens quickly, the stage between soft and stiff peaks, so watch it closely. Top the chilled bars with the whipped topping.
