There are very few desserts that honest-to-goodness make me lose my self-control these days. With all the sugar that has come out of this kitchen in the past 4 years, I’ve built up some pretty good resistance power (don’t worry, there are plenty of other indulgent foods that tempt me… like any kind of buttery, cheese-y, carbs to name a few).

I could probably list on one hand the number of sweets that I am truly powerless to:

1. Ice Cream

2. Box Mix Brownies (the hypocrisyI know)

3. Muddy Buddies

4. Little Debbie/Tastykakes chocolate covered snack cakes

5. Any sort of “bomb” pie a la mode.

So what’s a bomb pie?

I think there are lots of different definitions out there, some that are probably more correct than mine. But here on this blog, a “bomb pie” means any sort of pie that is made up of:

cookie/brownie/cake pieces + chess pie filling + a pie crust.

It’s really that simple. My inspiration for bomb pies came from an episode of a Food Network show that featured an eatery called Dangerously Delicious Pies (which I visited in Baltimore last year!). This place crumbles up Berger Cookies into a pie crust and pours a chess filling (imagine the gooey part of a pecan pie) over top. The cookies absorb the filling a bit, which makes everything bake into one big, gooey, glorious mass of pie!

It’s the same concept here: Samoas + chess pie filling + pie crust.

Fresh out of the oven with a huge scoop of vanilla bean on top and I’m weak in the knees in an instant. TOTALLY powerless. It’s ooey and gooey and filled with all of those delicious Samoa Cookie flavors.

How could anyone resist???

Samoas Bomb (Chess) Pie

Yield: 8-12

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

Instructions

  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.

    Amazing. Hunting down girl scouts so I can make this :)

    Wow, I am full of awe. It takes a special person to combine chess pie with Girl Scout cookies. I love it!

    I wonder if it would work with Tagalongs…you know, for the peanut butter and chocolate obsession I can’t shake. :) Girl Scout pie madness!

      It definitely would! But, honestly, you know what I think would be better along those same lines? Using the TastyKakes Peanut Butter Cakes. I did a post for them last year doing that exact thing, and IT. WAS. AMAZING. Like, I still dream about it! Here’s the link: http://www.somethingswanky.com/peanut-butter-kandy-kakes-chess-pie/

        Thanks so much! Cannot wait to make it. And also, thanks for posting all the Tagalong recipes. Your creativity knows no bounds.

    Can’t wait to make this with my surplus Samoas! Do you think it would hold up as well if I were to use a brown sugar or graham cracker crust?

    • Ashton replied: — March 23rd, 2014 @ 10:09 pm

      I’m *guessing* that it wouldn’t hold up as well, and that the filing might seep into the crust. But I don’t know for sure. If you try it, let me know!
