YALL this is the HOTTEST pie up in the east coast mainly New York and it's called CRACK PIE! They call it CRACK PIE because "one bite" and you will go back for more it's addictive. This pie is sweet and gives you a sugar high. If you want a PICK-UP before you walk out the door in the mornings just eat you a piece of CRACK PIE and you will have no need to go to STARBUCKS. The original crust for this pie is an oatmeal cookie crust but since this pie is so rich and sweet I just did a regular plain crust. Everyone who ate this pie has asked me to bake them one. ENJOY!

regular pie crust (not deep dish unless you want the pie thin))
3/4 c
granulated sugar
1/2 c
light brown sugar (i used dark)
2 Tbsp
nonfat dry powered milk
1/4 tsp
1/2 c
melted butter, slightly cooled
6 1/2 Tbsp
heavy cream
egg yolks
1 1/2 tsp
pure vanilla extract
2 Tbsp
corn flour (not corn meal, or cornstarch)
confectionery sugar for sprinkling

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven 375 degrees. First, lay parchment paper in bottom of pie crust and fill with pinto beans. Bake pie crust for about 15 minutes then remove form oven. Set aside. Reduce oven temp. to 350.
In a medium mixing bowl whisk sugar, powdered milk, salt and corn flour (You want find corn flour at the grocery store. I bought freeze dried corn at whole food and blended it in a blender until powdery).
Add melted butter, and whisk (not too much) until blended. Add cream, eggs yolks and vanilla and whisk until cream is just blended in. DO NOT WHISK TOO MUCH because we don't want a lot of air to get in the mixture which will prevent the pie from being gooey and that is what the pie is all about.
Pour filling into crust. Bake pie 30 minutes, reduce oven temp to 325 and continue for 20 minutes or until pie filling is brown on top (mine bakes perfectly for 50 minutes but keep baking until top of pie is brown then it's ready to take out).
Cool about 10 minutes then sprinkle powdered sugar on top. Let cool several hours before cutting. ENJOY!
