    Default Snicker's pie



    Snickers Pie
    (adapted from Mimi Silbert's recipe found in the SF Chronicle)
    (makes one 9-inch pie; approximately 12 to 16 servings)

    Crust
    2 cups graham cracker crumbs
    3 tablespoons light brown sugar
    4 ounces (1 stick/ 8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, melted

    Fudge Layer
    4 ounces (1 stick/ 8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, cut into 8 pieces
    4 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
    5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    1 large egg
    1 large egg yolk
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    8 ounces of Snickers candy bars, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    (I weighed the Snickers without wrappers)

    Cream Cheese Layer
    10 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
    1/3 cup granulated sugar
    1 large egg
    1 large egg white
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Glaze
    2 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
    3 tablespoons heavy cream

    (I used a different chocolate glaze recipe to top my pie but I didn't like it my topping recipe. I included the original glaze recipe instead of the one I used. So if you make the pie, your topping might look different from what is shown in my photos.)

    For the crust:
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9-inch deep-dish glass pie pan.

    Combine graham cracker crumbs and brown sugar in a mixing bowl. Add melted butter, stirring until well incorporated. Press mixture evenly onto the bottom and up the sides of prepared pan. Bake for 5 minutes, until crust is set. Transfer to a rack to cool.

    Keep the oven temperature at 350 degrees.

    For the fudge layer:
    Combine butter and bittersweet chocolate in the top of a double boiler; set over simmering water and stir until melted and smooth. Remove top insert and cool slightly.

    Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt into a mixing bowl. Set aside dry ingredients.

    Using an electric mixer, beat together sugar, egg and egg yolk in a large bowl for 1 minute, until slightly thickened. Add vanilla and cooled chocolate mixture and mix until well blended. Add dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Pour into crust.

    Bake for about 15 minutes, until a skewer inserted into the center comes out with moist batter still attached. If crust browns too quickly, cover with foil.

    Transfer pan to a rack and let cool for 10 minutes. Evenly arrange Snickers bars over the top.

    For the cream cheese layer:
    Using an electric mixer, beat together cream cheese and sugar in a mixing bowl until smooth. Add egg, egg white and vanilla and beat until smooth. Carefully spread mixture over the Snickers bars. Bake for 15 minutes, or until cream cheese is set. Transfer to a rack to cool.

    For the glaze:
    Combine chocolate and cream in the top of a double boiler. Set over simmering water and stir until chocolate is just melted and smooth. Remove from heat. Spread or drizzle decoratively over the pie.

    Refrigerate until well chilled. Serve cold. The pie may be prepared up to 3 days ahead. Cover loosely with foil and keep refrigerated.

    Okay, that's the jackpot. Cream cheese, chocolate, crunchy. I'd even eat a whole piece. Again, not sharing.

    That is a great site with great links.

    This looks so delicious, it almost brings a tear to my eye. I'd gain 10 pounds eating it, but I'd enjoy it.
