I'm making some bar cookies with an Oreo cookie crust. My question is what is the best way to prepare the crust? I have seen some recipes that say to bake the crust for 8-10 minutes. I have also seen some that say to freeze the crust instead. And...there are others that don't do anything other than press it into the pan.
What are the pros / cons of each method? I don't need a super-crunchy crust. I think slightly "softer" will go better with the bars.
