ARCHIVES: Tic Tac (tm) Pie!



Hey it’s my favorite time of the year! everything is perfect and beautiful. OK so do you remember when you went trick-or-treating and you’d knock on the door of some house that only had that telltale blue light of the television glowing through the windows. The door opens to a groggy disheveled bachelor who seems quite surprised to find you there, begging for candy. In desperation he rummaged around for a second and appears with a box of tic tacs. So HERE, my friends, is finally a the perfect use or all these random tic tacs! That is right! Seriously! Tic Tac Pie, It’s the Halloween pie of the month! Just a little bonus side-note: Brian Stucki found this recipe by googling “disgusting pie recipe”. You’ll be shocked to know that we actually tried this pie, and it actually is pretty tasty, considering. Honestly. ( believe it or not.)

1 graham cracker pie crust
Two 8 oz packages of cream cheese – softened
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
