I didn’t think I would have the time for another post before years’ end, but I’m taking that whole “stop rushing around all the time” promise to myself quite seriously.
So, in betwixt and between the quick Costco trip, two loads of laundry, one batch of Malted Waffles, and random cleanup around the house from Alexander and his friends, here I am……again. But this time, I have pie.
But….. not just any pie. A creamy, completely decadent and over-the-top chocolate pie loaded with holiday Oreos (hence the red bits you see in there).
Oreo Chocolate Pie – adapted from Ed Debevics
8 oz chocolate cookie crumbs6 tbs. unsalted butter, melted
1/3 plus 1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 large egg yolks
5 tablespoons cornstarch
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 cups finely chopped Oreo cookies
1 cup heavy cream, whipped to soft peaks
Oreo cookies for decorating
Transfer the cooked cream to a mixing bowl. Add the unsweetened chocolate, chocolate chips and butter and whisk until melted. Stir in the chopped Oreo cookies and mix well. Pour the filling into the pie crust and cover directly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
To serve, spread whipping cream over the top. Cut into slices and decorate each slice with an Oreo.
