After reading about this pie here, here, here and here, I could not resist holding off making this recipe anymore. I was so anxious to eat this pie that I completely forgot the powdered sugar! All I have to say is Ahhhhh-MAZING!

  5. Stir in the flour mixture until fully combined. Stir in the oats.

crust ingredients
  • Crumbled cookie for crust
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
crust directions
  1. Combine the crumbled cookie, butter, brown sugar and salt in a food processor and pulse until evenly combined and blended (a little of the mixture clumped between your fingers should hold together). 
  2. Divide the crust between 2 (10-inch) pie tins. Press the crust into each shell to form a thin, even layer along the bottom and sides of the tins. Set the prepared crusts aside while you prepare the filling.

  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Whisk together the sugar, brown sugar, salt and milk powder. Whisk in the melted butter, then whisk in the heavy cream and vanilla.
  3. Gently whisk in the egg yolks, being careful not to add too much air.
  4. Divide the filling evenly between the 2 prepared pie shells.
  5. Bake the pies, one at a time, for 15 minutes, then reduce the heat to 325 degrees and bake until the filling is slightly jiggly and golden brown, about 10 minutes. Remove the pies and cool on a rack.
  6. Refrigerate the cooled pies until well chilled. Serve cold, and the filling will be gooey. Dust with powdered sugar before serving.
