Mallomar Pie is really more of a tart, but that’s just semantics.
This "pie" is just like the classic cookie, but with a few twists. The base is a salted shortbread cookie (use the good Irish butter – it’s worth it), which is followed by a layer of dark chocolate ganache. That's not found in the traditional cookie, but it helps to break up the mound of vanilla marshmallow that comes next. The whole thing is then covered in dark chocolate glaze.
The whole pie is pretty cute, but it looks even better once sliced.
I always have three kinds of hot sauce in my purse. I have a soft spot for making people their favorite dessert, especially if it's wrapped in a pastry crust. My newest cookbook, The Book on Pie, came out on November 10th, 2020, and my pie merch collaboration with Food52 is out now too: https://food52.com/shop/merchants/manifest-food52/food52-x-erin-mcdowell
