You may be asking yourself, why did I not call this an “Irish Car Bomb” pie and well…it’s just not nice. How can I be pie people and not be nice? So, call it what you wish, but this Pub Pióg is one awesome addition to any St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Please pie responsibly today!
St. Paddy’s Pub Pie
1 Oreo cookie crust
¾ cup plus two Tablespoons granulated sugar
3 ½ Tablespoons cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup Guinness
1 cup whole milk
4 large egg yolks
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 ounces of unsweetened dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
1/3 cup caramel sauce (I used a Wegmans brand dessert topping)
2 Tablespoons Jameson
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 shot of Bailey’s Irish Cream (or use the entire travel size bottle like we did)
A pie holiday AND an Irish holiday this week meant that For Your Pies Only was baking up a storm over the weekend! I sadly was so preoccupied with the Instructables Pi Day contest last year (check out last year’s Drunken Apple Pi(e)) that I totally missed out on making an Irish themed pie. Well this year, you get TWO! One today & one tomorrow.
Today in celebration of Pi Day, I bring you a SQUARE PIE! (‘Cause you know…pies r squared?). This was my very first time making a shepherd’s pie AND my very first time cooking lamb…which smells quite lamb-y on the stove top, just sayin’.
My pie sous chef, Scott, helped pipe the mashed potatoes on the top to make it oh-so-pretty.
This pie is super easy to make & for obvious reasons, perfect for Pi Day AND St. Patrick’s Day celebrations! Enjoy it in good pie health :D
I actually included the link to the caramel sauce recipe as a live link in the ingredients section, but here it is again! Super easy, you just have to have all your ingredients prepped before you make it.
