Pickle pie is a real thing, and it is well-known from Sunglow Cafe in Bicknell, Utah. So, Well Done on YouTube recreated this pie and she says the texture is like a pumpkin pie. Imagine having a pie that includes pickles in it. I can only imagine what this pie would taste like because it is a weird idea. However, I do like pickle and I would be interested in trying something random like this. Apparently, it’s very popular too. I think the pie looks pretty cool if you garnish it with the whipped cream and a pickle on top. I’m sure there are people who are disgusted with this recipe, and there are those that are fascinated by this too.
First, preheat the oven to 350F. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together sugar, cornstarch, eggs, half-and-half, and mix until well combined. Then add butter, zest, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Make sure the pickles are finely chopped in a food processor before adding it. For full instructions and details, visit MyRecipes for the written recipe.
Next, pour it into an unbaked pie shell and bake for about 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes. Let the pickle pie cool down before refrigerating for at least 2 hours.
I think it’s cool to see a pie recipe that is out of the normal, but it’s supposed to be sweet and sour to set off the tastebuds. I think it’s pretty funny, but everyone has their own weird food combinations that they love. I’m not sure if I would make this myself, but I think it’s pretty gross that I might have to.
