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 hypocrisy… I know)
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???
