  • best!)
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted

  • Pulse the cookies and sugar in a food processor until you have fine crumbs. Slowly add the melted butter until moist clumps form.
  • Press the mixture into a lightly greased pie plate.
  • Bake until golden, about 8 minutes. Cool, like the crust of a newly-formed planet.

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened

Make the sauces on the stove

# Caramel Swirl

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla

Directions

  • Mix the water and sugar in a large heavy-bottomed saucepan. Cover and cook over low heat until the sugar dissolves.
  • Increase the heat and boil uncovered until the sugar turns a medium brown, about 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon.
  • Slowly (and carefully) add the cream and the vanilla. Simmer until the sauce is smooth and thick.

# Bittersweet Chocolate Swirl

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces unsweetened chocolate
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Directions

  • Slowly melt the chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot water.
  • Stir in sour cream, sugars and heavy cream.
  • When fully blended, stir in vanilla.

When the caramel and chocolate sauces are still warm, but not hot, drizzle in a swirled pattern over the cream cheese mixture.

Throw a few pieces of a broken toffee bar on top if you like, to represent the randomness of the universe.
