Happy Pi Day!

Truths:

  • 3.14 is National Pi Day!
  • Oreo turned 100 last week!
  • I’m in need of some comfort food tonight
  • Comfort=chocolate pudding
  • My dad’s side of the family hails from western Pennslyvania, and while much of the family tree has dispersed to more cosmopolitan regions, Oreo pudding combos were at every family reunion I can remember.  We may be all profiterole now, but deep down, we’re still dirt pie.

As in a mathematical proof, this is a clear equation for Oreo Pudding Pi(e).  But Oreo Pudding Pi(e) would not be complete without  a cocktail thrown in for good measure, (the name of this site demands it), so this is actually a recipe for Mudslide Pudding Pi(e).

Mudslide Pudding Pi(e)

Ingredients:

Makes one 9 inch pie

  • 1 15.5 oz package chocolate sandwich cookies, such as Oreo.
  • 3 Tbs butter, melted
  • 2 boxes chocolate pudding
  • 2 cups cold milk
  • 2 oz Kahlua
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 2 Tbs Bailey’s

Grease a 9 inch pie pan.  Set aside.  Reserve 14 cookies.  Eat 6, save the other 8 for garnish.  Pulse remaining cookies in food processor until ground to small crumbs.  Mix in bowl with melted butter.  Press into pie pan.  Meanwhile, in a saucepan, whisk together packages of pudding and milk.  Bring to a boil and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.  Remove from heat, mix in Kahlua, and pour into pie crust.  Refrigerate for at least 4 hours. In a large bowl, beat heavy cream with sugar.  When soft peaks form, add Bailey’s.  Beat a minute more, careful not to over whip.  Spread cream in a thick layer on cold pie.  Garnish with remaining cookies.  Serve immediately.
