Hi there! Okay, so I’m writing this before my power goes out- because I know it’s bound too. And no, I do not have a generator like the rest of the world. So when the electricity goes off, we’re kickin’ it old school. Yes, Irene is still the talk of the town, and she’s a comin’ alright! My entire town is basically shut down- evacuations, business closing (even WaWa is closed!), and if you really want my opinion, it’s getting a little insane. People fighting over generators in Home Depot? No thank you, I think I can live without my HBO for a day. So as I prepared to brace the storm, I contemplated the fact that my oven may be out of commission for a day or two. I would not be able to bake. My family could not be stuck in my house for 48 possible hours with no baked goods. So, I did what any normal, sane girl would do… baked a smores pie.
I found two recipes that I sort of combined to make my own- Big Girl Smores Pie from Cookies and Cups and Smores Bars from The Girl Who Ate Everything! Both recipes were very similar and were very easy to combine to make my Super-Scrumptious Smores Pie!
Laura’s Super Scrumptious Smores Pie
1/2 cup unsalted, softened butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups flour
3/4 cup graham cracker crumbs
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Roughly 1 1/2- 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1-2 cups marshmallow fluff
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9-inch round baking pan.
2. In a large bowl, mix together butter, brown sugar and white sugar using an electric mixer. Beat in egg and vanilla.
3. Combine flour, graham cracker crumbs, baking powder and salt. Add to the butter mixture until combined.
4. Press half of the dough into an even layer on the bottom of the prepared pan and up the sides. Spread the marshmallow fluff onto the dough.
6. Next, sprinkle your chocolate chips over the fluff.
8. Roll the remaining half of the dough into a ball. Place it on a sheet of wax paper and press into a disc. Carefully (this part gets a bit tricky!) peel the disc of dough off and onto the top of the pie, pressing the top and bottom layers of dough to connect.
So while everyone else may have their fancy generators and food to last them years, I have something even better. I have some candles, three flashlights, my family, and a smores pie. And really, what more do you need?
