Barry Callebaut’s Chocolate Crumb Pie

This recipe is from a Costco cookbook acquired on a Black Friday at Costco. Not by me, because you’d never find me at Costco on Black Friday, but by a kind friend who let me have it when she saw me looking wistfully at it in her kitchen.

The Costco cookbooks (she actually gave me two) feature something the store sells and include little profiles of the people behind the product. In this case, that’s Callebaut chocolate and the pie is by Barry Callebaut.

What makes this pie special is that a) it doesn’t take very long to set and b) it’s topped with chopped Chips Ahoy cookies. Chips Ahoy? You ask. Why, yes! I almost didn’t use them, but Fuzz had a mini bag leftover from Halloween so I put them on the pie and was surprised at good they tasted on pie If I made this pie again, I’d go out and buy a bag of Chips Ahoy for it because the texture of the dry cookies on the chocolate cream pie was just surprisingly delightful. You learn something new every day, eh?

As for the filling itself, it was good but my favorite chocolate cream pie is this one which I will probably top with cookies next time.

For now, I’m linking directly to the Costco recipe so that you can see the original in the book. The only changes I made were to halve it because it makes two pies and to use an Oreo crust consisting of 2 cups Oreo crumbs, 2 tablespoons butter and a tablespoon of milk baked at 350F for 6 minutes.

This recipe is here. If that doesn’t work, try cutting and pasting http://www.costcoconnection.com/connection/2008cookbook/?pg=201#pg201. It should take you directly to the recipe.

    Thanks for the reminder about these Costco cookbooks – I’ve looked at them the past few years. Doesn’t look like they published a 2011 edition, but all of the previous versions are at http://www.costcoconnection.com/connection. The 2008 edition that you linked has the most gorgeous cobbler on the cover that I will be making soon.

    I’ve picked up the Costco cookbook all of the other years but this year. Figures that there are good recipes like this in it. I’m confused though, you say they carry Callebaut chocolate. Have you ever seen Callebaut chocolate at your Costco? I haven’t but would love if they carried their products. America’s Test Kitchen rated their cocoa powder as the best.

    Michelle, I’ve never seen Callebaut at my Costco, but I’d sure like to! Maybe they sell it at select stores or maybe it was sold there for a limited period.

    Now that I look again at your post I realize the Costco cookbook was from 2008 – so maybe they were carrying some of their products then but not now. Maybe we should turn in requests at our Costcos for them to carry the cocoa powder and some chocolate!
