For Christmas dinner dessert, I decided to give Momofuku Milk Bar's Crack Pie a try. My conclusion: tastes like pecan pie filling without the pecans, except even more delicious. I enjoyed the hell out of it, but I'm not sure I'd pay $44.00 for it. It's also a touch too sweet for my tastes; next time I make it, I'm going to cut the white sugar down by quite a bit. Also, the only milk powder I was able to get my hands on was Safeway brand dried milk, which didn't dissolve properly and gave the whole pie a gritty texture. I'm thinking of adding sweetened condensed milk next time (SHUT UP I grew up with the stuff and I love it, don't judge me you don't know me you don't know what it was like)--sub half the cream and the milk powder for condensed milk and decrease the sugar even more.

The cookie crust, however, was incredible. I foresee myself using that as my chocolate chip cookie base and making a ton of crispy, tiny chocolate chip cookies.

By the way, if you guys in the Portland area want to come by and give this a try, PLEASE DO IT. I have a whole pie left in the fridge, and it's really rich stuff--it's definitely something you eat only a sliver of at a time.
