Sticky, sweet, creamy, and delicious - these mini pies are seriously addictive. Though they're a little labor-intensive, these awesome little pies are made with three kinds of milk (powdered, malted, and cream) and have an oatmeal cookie crust - who could ask for more?

Though they won't be the prettiest thing on your dessert table, they will be the richest and most raved about. You can also make this recipe in a 6" tart pan, but making mini pies makes it a little harder to snarf down too much of this gloriously decadent treat, which is based on a recipe from Momofuku, at once.

Thanks so much!
The sunken-in part looks like a great place for a big dollop of whipped cream. You could even put some malted milk powder in the cream while you're whipping it. These sound great!
Malted milk whipped cream is a genius idea!
Mmm, those are so cute!
Thanks! They're yummy too!
mmm sounds delicious, malted milk in desserts is divine.
Between the malted milk, cream, and butter, you wouldn't even believe how good.
