Riffing on Dolly

Normally, when someone is very nice to me, I reward that person by making him the Hello Dolly pie that Sara invented.

Two of my new colleagues who have been very nice to me do not like coconut, so Hello Dolly pie would not impress them.

I could just make French silk instead, but I’m lazy, so I decided to riff on Sara’s recipe a little bit. What I came up with actually tastes remarkably like no-bake cookies:

1 prepackaged graham cracker crust (get the Keebler “extra serving” kind if possible)
Handful of Teddy Grahams or similar (I personally like the Honey Maid bees)
1 stick butter, melted
1 c. quick oats
1 c. chocolate chips
1 c. chopped walnuts or pecans
1 can sweetened condensed milk

Preheat oven to 350. Cover bottom of piecrust with Teddy Grahams. Pour butter over Teddy Grahams. Add oats, chocolate chips, and nuts. Pour sweetened condensed milk over the whole mess. Bake until browned and bubbly.

I’m not sure it’s as good as Hello Dolly pie, but Ron loved it, and it’s a nice alternative if you’re dealing with one of those poor misguided souls who won’t eat coconut….

  1. Man, does tht sound good. I’ve been South Beaching it for the last two weeks and dreaming wistfully of all things gooey and sweet and fattening. Splurged a bit the night before last, but other than that, have been generally good. Good thing I am many hundreds of miles away from your delightful pie right now…
