I am so excited to share this week’s “Milk Bar Monday” treat with you. The “Crack Pie” may be considered to be Milk Bar’s signature dessert, (they have it trademarked after all,) and I totally see why. This pie is insanely good, and actually pretty easy to make (compared to the other recipes in the book at least.) Mine was eaten in less than 24 hours and everyone that got to taste it just loved the gooey filling and slightly salty crust.
The oatmeal cookie crust really takes this pie up to a whole new level. To make it, you basically bake up a huge oatmeal cookie until it’s golden and crisp, then you crush it down to crumbs and mix it with some melted butter. That gets pressed into the pie dish and filled with a custard-like filling that is full of magic ingredients like freeze-dried corn and milk powder. It’s hard to know exactly what role they play in making this pie so great, so I’m not going to try to figure it out. All I know is that the filling has a rich, toffee-like flavor that makes it near impossible to stop eating.
Ready for the oven!
As always, my lovely Milk Bar Monday friends have also made this gorgeous pie so visit our host Meagan for the recipe, as well as the other girls:
