Horchata Pie Fantasy
In honor of the great B Real's new album "Tell You Somethin," we whipped up a delicious new dessert featuring our collaboration cookie, the INSANE CHURRO cookies. Horchata Pie with Churro Cookie crust. Imagine taking a bite of a rich buttery churro followed by a swig of some sweet cinnamon laced horchata and you have the inspiration for this dreamy cream pie.
INSANE CHURRO Cookie Crust
The first thing you will want to do is make your cookie crust. With lots of experimentation, we have come to the conclusion that the best amount for a standard sized pie dish is 20 cookies. This gives the crust more body, more of the rich buttery flavor that is going to offset the sweetness of the pie.
20 Insane Churro cookies
4 tablespoons of butter
You can crumble the cookies with a fork, or if you have a food processor that will go a lot faster, lol. The point is to get the cookies to an even crumb consistency and then you add the butter which is going to help the cookies to form into a crust. Add the cookie crumbs to the pie plate and bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes until the cookie crumbs begin to get golden brown.
Making the cookie crust is pretty easy. The main thing you need to be careful about is watching the crust while it's in the oven so it just gets golden brown. Once it looks good, remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
Horchata Cream Filling
For the filling, we chose this Simply Delish Instant Vanilla Pudding and we mixed it together with some unsweetened Hempmilk. You could also use rice milk to make it taste even more like horchata, but we decided to go for the hemp this time. This pudding mix will form with plant based milks. After whisking together the hemp milk and pudding mix add vanilla extract and cinnamon to taste.
Assemble the Pie
Once the crust is cool, add the horchata mixture to the pie plate. Sprinkle with cinnamon, add a cinnamon stick for fun, and cool in the refrigerator until the pudding is set!
