One of the first items I ever heard of in relation to the Momofuku Milk Bar was the Crack Pie.
Since the day I joined #milkbarmonday I have been looking forward to making the infamous pie. I must say, It does not disappoint!
You start off by making a thick and buttery oatmeal cookie. Good enough to replace your old standby oatmeal cookie recipe.
Crumble it up, mix it with butter and brown sugar and press it into a pan. Then you fill the crust with a silky sweet custard-like mixture.
Bake it all up. Freeze it. Serve it cold with powdered sugar and escape into a sugarcoma.
I did have a few issues with this pie.
First, my slices did not want to come out of the pan. So we ended up just eating it straight out of the pie pan with a fork. Second, I wish there would have been more cookie crust! Maybe it would have been better had I used a food processor…
The recipe makes 2 of these bad boys, so unless you plan on eating all the sugar alone or giving one away I recommend cutting the recipe in half.
