Pretzel Cookie Crusted Chocolate Pie-What’s a girl to bake- PI day 2016 edition

Happy PI day!  What’s a girl to bake when PI day is coming and she is short on time? Every year I bake pie for PI day and somehow this year I was in a rush but there was no way I was missing out on PI day Pie! That is how this Pretzel and cookie crusted chocolate pie was born.  This is the perfect recipe for someone short on time and/ or out of ingredients! Plus who can resist chocolate and pretzels?  I made this dairy free but substitute the bittersweet chocolate with milk chocolate and the oil  with butter and voila!  Note to all- this crust is probably the best part of the pie! So here goes:

Ingridients:

Crust:

2 cups of pretzels

6 cookies (I used sandwich cookies since I was pretty much out of homemade cookies unfortunately)

process in food processor

5 Tbsp of Oil (substitute with 6 Tbsp of butter for the dairy version)

mix the “crumbs” with the oil and pat down in a pie plate (I used a pyrex one)

Bake for 15 minutes at 350′ and put aside to cool

Filling:

about 200 grams of chocolate melted (I used bittersweet, you can mix in milk chocolate) mix along with creamer (which I skipped making the pie more of a chocolate bar but I wouldn’t skip this next time…)

Pour in cooled pie shell and refrigerate for a few hours, I decorated it with pretzels.
