Robin wanted Pie for her birthday instead of cake. I used that opportunity to try a new recipe, "Crack Pie" from Momofuku Milk Bar. I still don't have the cookbook but have already made the Blueberry and Cream Cookies multiple times and they are a favorite. The Crack Pie recipe makes enough for two pies but I made it in one big casserole dish. Like the Blueberry cookies, this recipe calls for unusual ingredients and multiple steps. Also like that recipe, this one is worth the trouble!
It wasn't a very pretty dessert, but it sure was yummy. It tasted like a caramel pie.
The odd ingredient here was Freeze dried corn powder. After doing some research I figured out that you can make your own by grinding Freeze dried corn, easy peasy.
The additional step is first making An Oat Cookie Crumb. You mix and bake it in one big cookie and then crumble that. The crumbles get mixed into the cookie crust. I felt like the crust sort of melded into the pie, and I'm not sure if that is how it is supposed to be. Either way it was delicious.
I found the recipe over at Scarletta Bakes.
