Good to know
- Storing: Make sure to store your Oreo Pie Crust in an airtight container in your refrigerator if you are not using it right away.
- Shelf Life: Your Oreo Pie Crust will stay good for up to a week if stored correctly.
- Quiche Pan: You do not have to use a quiche pan but if you want to make sure you can lift out the crust in one piece, I recommend you use one.
- Tip: Before lifting the Oreo Pie Crust from the quiche pan, let it sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes. That way it is less likely you will break the crust.
- Quiche Pan Size: When you are using a different size quiche pan or pie plate than listed in this recipe, you will have to figure out how many Oreos you should use. To do so, cover your pan or plate with Oreos, including the sides. Don’t worry about the empty spaces between the Oreos; this is not a problem as long as you cover the entire pan or plate. Weigh the Oreos you need and calculate what 25% of their total weight is. That is the amount of butter that you need for an Oreo Pie Crust of that size.
- Organic: To make this recipe organic, only use organic ingredients.
- Gluten-free: Use similar gluten-free cookies.
- Vegan: Use similar vegan cookies and use a vegan butter replacement.
Know What You Eat
Both when buying food or when making your own, it is important to inform yourself about the nutritional value. Have a look at the nutrition label, learn about your serving size and what nutrients this product will bring to the table.
If you want to compare different products and their values, it is easier to look at a label where the values are given per 100 grams. This way you get a better understanding of the categories certain products belong to when it comes to nutritional values. Is this a product with a high sugar content? Does it contain a lot of fibre? How does this product measure up if I am looking to stick to a low-sodium diet?
Keep in mind that if you are looking to eat healthily, you should not just avoid eating fat and/or sugar. We need both in our daily diet. Make sure however to be aware of where you get your lipids and sugars from. As a rule of thumb, you could say; variation is very important in your diet and in general, the closer your food is to come straight from the source, the better.
