Neapolitan Malt Mousse Pie



I needed to create a pie for a contest and this is what I came up with. If I could open a diner
around this playful pie I would! With clouds of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry, plus the crunch of an Oreo crust, this pie needs some roller skates and a tip jar.

1 1/2 cups Oreo cookie crumbs, finely crushed
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
2 tablespoons cold water
¼ cup boiling water
2 cups very cold whipping cream
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons real vanilla extract
1/3 cup malted milk powder
3 TBS Dutch processed cocoa powder
3 tablespoons Nestle Nesquik Strawberry powder

1. Sprinkle gelatin over 2 tablespoons cold water in a small bowl and let stand for 2 minutes. Then add 1/4th cup boiling water. Set aside.

2. Butter a 9” pie pan. In a large bowl mix together melted butter and Oreo cookie crumbs. Press crumbs evenly into the bottom and sides of pie pan. Place in the refrigerator while prepping the mousse mixture.

3. With a stand mixer with a whisk attachment beat the cold whipping cream and vanilla extract until almost stiff. Add the sugar and malt powder slowly and beat until stiff. Pour in the gelatin mixture and beat until well incorporated.

4. Next divide the mixture evenly into 3 bowls. Add 3 tablespoons cocoa powder to one bowl, and 3 tablespoons Nestle Nesquik Strawberry powder to another bowl. Mix with a fork until incorporated.

5. Spoons the chocolate mixture into the pie crust and spread evenly around. Then add the vanilla mixture and spread leaving a slight hump in the middle. Lastly add the strawberry mix and spread to cover the top. Let chill for three hours or more before serving.

Notes: You can skip step two by purchasing an Oreo pie crust.

That's hilarious! You should open a diner based off the pie! I would definitely come. Give me an opening date and me and my pickup truck are there!
