How to win friends and influence people: Snickerdoodle pie

March 28, 2010

Inspiration/entire idea from!

Like snickerdoodles? Yep. Like pie? Yep. Ok, cool.

This is the ultimate easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy dessert recipe. It takes about an hour total, and costs under ten dollars. Oh, and did I mention it’ awesome! It actually tastes like the cookie too (always a plus)! Here’s how it’s done homies…

What you need:
-1 cup and 1 Tbsp. sugar
-4 cups unsalted butter. Those of you trying to be healthy, try Smart Start. Even though you are making something called snickerdoodle pie, so you might want to reevaluate that.
-1 1/2 cups buttermilk
-4 large egg yolks
-1/4 cup all-purpose flour
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-1 prepared graham cracker crust

1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a large bowl, mix together everything except for the cinnamon and the Tbsp. of sugar. If you don’t know how to separate eggs, click here for a video. I find videos much more helpful than articles. Just give me the quick and dirty, please and thank you.
3. Pour your mixture into the pie crust.
4. Mix the Tbsp. sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl, then sprinkle it over the top of the pie.
5. Throw it in the oven for 20 minutes. I don’t recommend actually throwing- more like lightly placing in a delicate manner.
6. Lower the heat to 325 degrees and bake for another 20 minutes. Don’t open the oven door. Maybe have a drink or five to pass the time.
7. Take out, let cool, cover, and place your pie/giant pie-like cookie in the fridge.
8. Eat. Done and done.

Hint: If you want to make the crust yourself, buy a box of graham crackers plus one extra stick of butter. Put the crackers in the blender- about 1/3 of the pack at a time- and blend into a fine powder. I would use about half the box. Spread that in the pan. Then melt 1/2 the stick of butter in the microwave and pour it over the graham cracker, mixing with a fork. use your fingers to press crust to pan. Oh, and wash your hands. That is all.
