Serves: 10-12 slices
Ingredients
For the Crust:
  • 1 box Do-Si-Dos
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
For the Pie:
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons yellow cornmeal
  • 1 teaspoon espresso powder (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1⅓ cups chocolate, chopped (you can use any kind - I went for plain ol' milk chocolate here)
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, cubed
  • ⅓ cup evaporated milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • whipped cream or ice cream, for serving
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and set aside. Crush your box of Do-Si-Dos and place them in a bowl, then pour your 4 tablespoons of melted butter over the crushed cookies. Use a fork to mix the two together well, then press your crust into a 9-inch pie dish. Place the crust in the oven and bake for 10 minutes or so, just to let it set. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
  2. For the filling, whisk together the sugar, flour, cornmeal, espresso powder and salt. Set aside. In a medium pot, melt together the butter and chocolate until smooth. Remove the mixture from the heat and whisk in the evaporated milk, then the eggs, one at a time, then the vanilla, until smooth.
  3. Fold in the sugar and flour mixture and mix until smooth, then pour it into your prepared curst. Bake the pie for 30-35 minutes, until the center is mostly set. Allow the pie to cool for 20 minutes on the counter, then place it in the fridge and allow it to cool and chill (for at least 2 hours) before slicing and serving, preferably with whipped cream or ice cream.
