I love this recipe. It's actually a fairly basic chess pie in an oatmeal cookie crust. But it's a great recipe from Christina Tossi of Momofuku Milk Bar fame. She's been on TV quite a lot lately too. I actually don't know for sure if I did this right because there are a lot of slightly different variations of this recipe online. Even if I didn't do it right, it's freakin' delicious, to the point that I would probably do it wrong the next time too.

What you will need

FOR THE OATMEAL COOKIE

4 Tbsp (48 g) light brown sugar

2 Tbsp (25 g) sugar

5 Tbsp unsalted butter

1 large egg

1/2 cup (90g) ap flour

3/4 cup (85 g) oats

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Nonstick vegetable oil spray

FOR THE CRUST

1 Tbsp (12 g) light brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon (generous) salt

3 Tbsp unsalted butter

FOR THE FILLING

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 Tbsp (12 g) nonfat dry milk powder

3/4 cup (150 g) sugar

1/2 cup (100 g) light brown sugar

1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted, cooled slightly

6 1/2 Tbsp (100 ml) heavy cream

4 large egg yolks

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
