Easy Crack Pie Recipe
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Add the dry ingredients to a stand mixer with a paddle attachment and mix at low speed to combine. Add the melted butter while keeping the mixture at low speed. Mix just until all dry ingredients are moist.
Add the heavy cream and vanilla and mix just until you can no longer see the white of the cream. Still, on low speed, add the egg yolks and mix just to combine.
Place both pie shells on a baking sheet and pour half the filling into each shell. They should be about 3/4 full.
Bake for 15 minutes. At 15 minutes, open the door of the oven and reduce heat to 325 degrees F. Leave the oven door open with the pies in until the temperature decreases - about 5-10 minutes, depending on your oven. Once the temperature reaches 325 degrees F, close the oven door and continue baking for 10-15 minutes. The center should still be jiggly but the outside should be set.
Remove from oven and let cool completely. If you're in a hurry, transfer the pies to the fridge or freezer.
Just before serving, dust with powdered sugar.
