Momofuku milk Bar Crack pie recipe

I’ve never tried crack before, but after having this pie, I don’t feel I ever need to.

Feelings of euphoria? Check.
Supreme confidence? I can eat a whole pie! Check.
Paranoia? Somebody’s been eating MY pie! Check.
Loss of appetite? After eating a whole pie? Check.
A craving for more? Check.

Oh boy, is there a craving for more. Seriously, this pie is insanely addictive. An oatmeal cookie crust and a sweet, gooey, butterscotch-y filling combine to create a delicious bubbling mess of salty-sweet goodness. When it cools, you’ll have to fight for your share. Or you can grab the pie plate, turn your back and crouch in the corner, stuffing your face like a feral cat. A feral cat that uses a fork, of course.

Don’t worry, that didn’t happen. I thought about it though. Damn those feelings of paranoia, they make you want the pie all for yourself!

The smell of the pie baking is pleasantly sweet, but it doesn’t drive you into a frenzy the way that first bite will. You’ll never forget that first bite: it’s euphoric. You’ll feel like your hands can’t put pie into your mouth fast enough. After the first few mindless, breathless moments of all-consuming-pie-eating, I regretted halving the recipe to make just one pie.

Don’t make my mistake: make two pies. You’ll eat both of them. Or, you’ll have a guaranteed way to make some new friends if you somehow manage to resist the second pie. It’s a very irresistible pie; I consumed half of one myself.

Hours later with Crack Pie just a fuzzy memory, I was feeling slow, lethargic, and depressed. It was a gorgeous day outside, but the sunshine did nothing to cheer me up. I didn’t get it, but then, in a flash of brilliance, I realized: I was coming down from my crack pie high. Be warned, Crack Pie causes withdrawal symptoms.

I’ve now made Crack Pie three times, in three different incarnations: Crack Tart, Crack Pie Pops, and good old fashioned Crack Pie. I didn’t get any photos of the good old fashioned pie, we devoured it before photos could be taken.

Mike: Did you know Crack Pie is a bite?
Me: No it isn’t! Did you know some guy ordered one online and dropped on the ground in his lobby and then ate it?
Mike: What?
Me: He dropped it so he called his roommate to bring two forks down and they ate it off the floor. $44 a bite?
Mike: $44 a PIE, not a bite.
Me: Oh.
