Marie Regal Biscuit-Based Pie Recipe

- 75 gr butter
- 12 tbsp. salted peanuts, coarsely chopped
- 16 tbsp. good quality chocolate bars, coarsely chopped or crushed
- 60 g of powdered sugar
- 10-20 Chacha chocolates
- Whipped cream, add to taste
Method 1 of 3: Making the Pie Crust
Step 1. Crush the Oreo biscuits until they are smooth and crumbly
The easiest way is to use a chopper or food processor because the results are definitely satisfying. Don't have the two tools above? Do not worry. Place the Oreo chips (or other chocolate chip cookies) in a plastic clip bag, then crush them with a rolling pin. You can also place the Oreos in a mortar and mash them with a fork until they are smooth. Don't throw away the Oreo cream before crushing it. Cream can act as an adhesive that will strengthen the texture of your pie crust.
- Before crushing the biscuits, preheat the oven and set it to 175°C.
- Crush the biscuits until they are really crumbly and smooth.
- The above method also applies to the Marie Regal pie crust recipe; Process the biscuits and sugar in a food processor until they are smooth and crumbly, or crush the two ingredients with a rolling pin or pulverizer.
Step 2. Melt the butter and pour it into the crushed Oreo or Marie Regal biscuits
In addition to acting as an adhesive, butter also contributes a more legit taste and texture to your pie crust. Stir well until melted butter coats all biscuit crumbs.
If the pie crust doesn't look solid and sticky, add the butter a little at a time until you get the texture you want. This process also needs to be done if the number of biscuits you use is more than stated in the recipe
Step 3. Arrange the pie crust dough in the pan
Do not forget, you need to first grease the pan with oil or butter. Using the base of a spoon or a spatula, press and flatten the dough to coat the entire pan.
Step 4. Bake the pie crust dough
Place the baking sheet in the oven, bake the unstuffed crust for 5-7 minutes or until the pie crust is cooked through and hardened.
Step 5. Cool the cooked pie crust
This step is necessary because the texture and taste of the pie filling can change if you rush to pour it into the still hot pie crust. If necessary, you can speed up the cooling process by placing the pie crust in the refrigerator.
Pour in the filling after the pie crust has cooled completely and hardened. Follow the steps below to make an easy and delicious pie filling
Method 2 of 3: Making Easy and Delicious Pie Stuffing
Step 1. Combine peanut butter, cream cheese and sugar
In a large bowl, mix all three ingredients with a mixer on medium speed for a few minutes or until a smooth, thick mixture forms.
- Notes: If you are making your own pie crust, set the oven to 175°C before making the filling. Skip this process if you are using a ready-made pie crust.
Step 2. Pour in the whipped cream
Knead the dough using a kneading technique (place a spatula on the side of the bowl, comb the bottom of the bowl, then turn the dough over by turning your wrist). Do not stir clockwise to maintain the consistency of the cream. Stir until all the filling ingredients are evenly mixed.
Step 3. Pour the filling into the cooked and cooled pie crust
Slowly, spoon enough filling into the pie crust. Smooth the surface using a spatula.
At this point, you can also sprinkle your favorite toppings on the top of the pie. Check out the “Recommended Toppings” section for topping ideas that go great with your peanut butter pie
Step 4. Store in the refrigerator until the pie filling hardens
This process can take 1-3 hours, depending on the temperature of your refrigerator. For the best texture and taste, you can refrigerate it overnight.
- When the pie filling has hardened, it's a sign that the delicious pie is ready to eat! Delicious pies eaten directly or combined with a variety of your favorite toppings.
- Before putting it in the refrigerator, it's a good idea to wrap the pie in aluminum foil to maintain its quality. Keep the aluminum foil out of direct contact with the surface of the pie to keep your pie in shape.
Method 3 of 3: Adding Toppings
Step 1. Sprinkle chopped nuts over the surface of the pie to enrich its taste and texture
This topping is suitable for those of you who can't eat foods that are too sweet and creamy. Add a pinch of salted peanuts to balance the sweetness of the peanut butter and create a crunchy effect between bites.
Step 2. Coat the surface of the pie with melted chocolate
Pour the melted chocolate over the surface of the pie and let it sit until the chocolate layer hardens. The combination of a hard chocolate layer and a soft pie filling creates a very unique texture. Check out the process below:
- Crush or coarsely chop your favorite chocolate bar. For this recipe, we recommend using low-sugar dark chocolate so your pie doesn't end up being too sweet.
- Melt the chocolate in a team or regular saucepan. If using a regular saucepan, place the chocolate in a heatproof bowl first. Float the bowl over a pot of water and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the chocolate melts. If you want to be more practical, you can melt the chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds.
- When the chocolate is completely melted, let it sit for 1-2 minutes, then spoon the chocolate onto the surface of the pie and gently smooth it out with a spatula. After that, put the pie in the refrigerator and refrigerate it until it hardens.
Step 3. Sprinkle the surface of the pie with powdered sugar
Don't sprinkle too much sugar so your pie doesn't end up being too sweet. Powdered sugar, which is white as snow, goes well with the chocolate pie crust, the recipe for which you can read above. Contrasting color combinations will actually create a very beautiful appearance.
Step 4. Sprinkle the surface of the pie with Chacha chocolate or another chocolate-coated nut product
If you want it to be more practical, you can chop it coarsely and sprinkle it randomly over the surface of the pie. But usually, children are actually attracted to the varied colors of Chacha brown. If you're making pies for your kids, there's nothing wrong with taking the time to arrange the Chacha chocolate balls in an interesting design that will make the kids more excited to eat them.
Step 5. Top the pie with whipped cream
If any of the whipped cream remains from the pie filling, pour it over the top of the pie and gently smooth it out. You can also spray ready-made whipped cream, which is sold in canisters, onto the surface of the pie.
Pour the chocolate or caramel sauce over the top of the whipped cream to enhance the appearance of your pies
- Serve the pie in not too big chunks as this snack is very creamy and filling.
- Adjust the taste of the filling before pouring it into the pie crust. Once the filling is poured, you'll have a hard time improving the taste if it's not to your liking.
