Happy Sunday Guys! Not sure about you guys but we are getting pretty excited over here for all of the Thanksgiving festivities. Of course Thanksgiving is all about great food and I love to try new recipes for a few things each year. This year I focused on finding some delicious pie recipes that were different than the traditional pumpkin pies. Hope you guys enjoy some of these yummy alternatives!

SAMOAS BOMB PIE

| Makes: 8-12 Servings|

Ingredients:

  • 2 packages Coconut Dreams or Samoas Cookies, broken into pieces
  • 1 refrigerated pie crust
  • 1/2 c. butter, melted
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. cornmeal (or almond flour, or flour)
  • 1 tbsp. vinegar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 eggs

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. Gently unroll refrigerated pie crust into a 9-inch pie dish.
  3. Fill the pie crust with the broken cookie pieces.
  4. Whisk together the butter, sugar, cornmeal, vinegar, and vanilla. Mix in the eggs (add them last so that the other ingredients bring down the temperature of the melted butter first– no one wants scrambled eggs in their pie!) until smooth and creamy looking.
  5. Pour the mixture over the cookie pieces. Gently prod the pieces with a spatula to ensure that all of the cookie pieces have been coated in the chess filling mixture.
  6. Bake for 35-45 minutes (37 minutes usually does it for me). Everything should look firm around the edges and SLIGHTLY jiggly in the middle.
  7. Let cool before serving (otherwise you won’t be able to make clean cuts– but if you don’t mind that, dig right in!). Cover in plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to a week.
