More recipes…Today make Crack Pie

This recipe is from the Momofuku folks who decribed it on Martha Stewart.  I wrote the recipe down as they told it rapid-fire, so I think this is right.  Also, like all good chefs, they give the ingredients by weight rather than by dry measure.  You can make this on your kitchen scale easily.  You DO have a kitchen scale, don’t you?

Crack Pie


  • 4 oz butter
  • 1.25 oz granulated sugar
  • 2.5 oz. brown sugar
  • 3 oz flour
  • 3.5 oz rolled oats
  • pinch of baking soda
  • pinch of baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 egg

Spread the above in a shallow pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.   Crumble after baking and add

  • 2 oz butter, melted
  • 3/4 oz brown sugarline your pie pan like a graham cracker crust. 

Press into a pie pan with your fingers like a graham cracker crust.


  • 10.5 oz sugar
  • 7 oz brown sugar
  • salt-little bit
  • 3/4 oz milk powder
  • 8 oz melted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 6.25 oz heavy cream
  • 8 egg yolks

Mix all that stuff together for the filling.  Bake the pie in a hot oven for 10 minutes and then turn down the heat to 350 degrees.  I have no idea how long it will take to set up.  I would guess about 50 minutes, but better monitor it.
