Those who know me, know I hate to bake.
Loathe baking, even.
I think it's because I was bad at science and math. No, seriously!
I had no time for things that were locked in. I loved the freedom and creativity that came with art, english and all those other elective classes.
How the heck did I graduate?…
As a food blogger I have learned that baking is a science. You need a determined amount of wet ingredients and a determined amount of dry ingredients to end up a cake, cookies, pie or bread.
I only put on my baking apron in the most extreme circumstances, and this my darling Yummies, was one extreme circumstance. I mean, c'mon, who in their right mind wouldn't want to smash and s'more and pie together into this epic dessert. When science tastes this good, I'm willing to experiment.
YOU WILL NEED
1 1/4 cups of all purpose flour
1 cup of graham cracker crumbs
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup of room temperature butter (1 stick)
1 large egg
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups of marshmallow cream or whole marshmallows (up to you, but I used the cream)
1 cup of milk chocolate chips
1 cup of dark chocolate chips
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
- Butter a pie pan and set aside.
- In a medium bowl beat the butter, egg, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla together until smooth.
- In another bowl stir together the dry ingredients: flour, graham crackers crumbs, baking soda and salt.
- Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the butter mixture one third at a time.
- When the dough is ready it should look like a lot of crumbly pearls.
- Pour half of the dough mixture into the bottom of the pie dish and press firmly until it bonds together to form a crust.
- Add 1 cup of marshmallow cream to the top of the base crust.
- Add the chocolate chips on top of the marshmallow cream then top them with the other half of the marshmallow cream.
- Pour the second half of the dough on top of the second layer of marshmallow cream and press to form a sealed top crust.
- Bake your s'mores pie in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until the top browns and hardens.
- Remove the pie and let it cool and set for 10-15 minutes before serving.
Okay science, this time you win.
