I Made Crack Pie And Thought It Was...

 

     …one of the most overrated desserts - ever. Clearly I'm not a Milk Bar cult member. Crack Pie [wait for it] ain’t all it’s cracked up to be. It’s just not. 

     I had heard nothing but raves, raves, raves, about this addictive confection and curiosity got the best of me. Twice. Yeah, I made it twice. Why? I didn’t think that something SO good could look SO bad. The first one looked blah, uninteresting. The second pie wasn’t much better, hence the liberal dusting of confectioner’s sugar in all of the pictures I saw online. And the filling? It’s is just a bunch [a whole bunch] of butter and sugar.  I get how that appeals, not exactly caramel, but still gooey. I just think it’s BORING.

     Which brings me to what I liked about the pie - the oatmeal cookie crust.

Great idea, so great that I’ve logged the recipe in my repertoire and will use it the next time I make a cheesecake. Goodbye boring graham crackers. Hello crunchy, oatmeal cookie crust.

     Here’s the Bon Appetit recipe I used. This is in no way a slight about the recipe – it works and you’ll know it works when your pie comes out looking like a mess that needs to be covered with confectioner’s sugar. If you don’t want to make your own Crack Pie – you can pick one up for a pricey $44.00 at a Momofuku Milk Bar – that alone should break you of the crack addiction.
