This pie on the cover of the January issue. The recipe calls for chocolate "wafer" cookies which I presume to mean those that come in a 3-pack of brown (choc), yellow (vanilla?) and pink (heaven's only knows) - I found all-choc at TJ's. Anyway the picture makes the crust look a very dark brown almost like an Oreo crust but wouldn't that be a sandwich cookie? If anyone's made I'd love your advice.
Also a butter question. I was seduced by the great price at Costco and didn't realize I wasn't buying unsalted butter which every recipe I make calls for. So, for example for this pie, the crust directions call for unsalted butter but the filling calls for 1/8 tea of salt. Do you think I can omit salt in the filling but use the salted butter in the crust? Otherwise I'll have to unload this butter on eBay!
Thanks so much and happy holiday cooking.
