Oh My! Caramel Pie at Beatrix, Chicago
This decadent slice was dreamed up by pastry chef Yasmin Gutierrez as a way to incorporate Beatrix‘s beloved cookies into another standout dessert. Gutierrez pulverizes her shortbread treats to form the crumbly cookie crust, which holds a flan-like caramel filling that’s at once luxurious and homespun. Each slice is accompanied by a simple dollop of freshly whipped vanilla-bean cream.
