Chocolate pie crusts are unquestionably delicious, but making them from scratch is a bit tedious. The thought of surgically extracting the vanilla cream from the middle of 30 Oreo cookies? Not exactly my idea of a good time,
So when I was walking through the cookie aisle of the market, I suddenly had an epiphany: Why not substitute Oreos with Teddy Grahams?
Teddy Grahams are as yummy as they are cute. Toss a handful of these little guys into a food processor (a coffee grinder works well, too) with a bit of sugar and melted butter, hit the pulverize button, and you’ve got yourself a delicious and crunchy chocolate crust that rivals any store-bought crust.
By the way, this crust is particularly good for custard pies because the crunchiness of the cookies holds up really well.
