Chocolate Oreo Pie

/ Sunday, September 15, 2013

Hello Again!
I took a bit of a hiatus from blogging (not baking however). Being a sophomore, school is starting to get really demanding, and as you all know I had know I had no photos due to computer issues.
But I'm here now, ready to get back to blogging.

I'm putting up new these photos for the steamed cupcake recipe:





This week's recipe however, I am very excited about. I was attending a study group so I wanted something fun for all us overworked sophomores. The pie turned out amazing, and I would recommend it for any party or dessert. It is also very easy and relatively quick.






Chocolate Oreo Pie

Serves 11
Adapted from: Baker's Royal
Uses a 9 inch pie pan


For the Crust:
20 Oreo cookies, crushed
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Place Oreos in a food processor or blender and pulse until cookies are finely crumbed. Set aside 1/3 cup for the whipped cream layer. Mix remaining portion with the melted butter and then firmly press crumbs into place to create a crust. Bake crust at 350 degrees F for 7 minutes.
For the Chocolate Pudding:
1/2 cup cornstarch
½ cup granulated sugar
Pinch of salt
3 cups cold whole milk
3/4 cups dark chocolate, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Combine cornstarch, sugar, salt and milk in a medium sauce pan and whisk until combines. Place over low heat whisking constantly until mixture begins to thicken. Remove from heat, quickly add chocolate, and stir to combine. Add vanilla and stir to combine. Set aside to cool.

For the Whipped Cream Layer:
2 cups whip cream
1/3 cup crushed Oreos
Sugar

Whip cream to stiff peaks and sweeten to taste. Measure out 2 1/2 cups, and place into a medium bowl. Set the rest aside for decoration. Fold the crushed Oreos into the 2 1/2 cups whipped cream.

Assembly:
Pour chocolate pudding over the Oreo crust. Pour Oreo whipped cream layer on top of the chocolate pudding. Pipe remaining whipped cream to form stars around the sides of the pie. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.



Not a great photo, but I wanted to show you the layers of the pie.

Until Next Week!
