Baltimore Bomb pie is a gooey vanilla chess pie with melted Berger cookies swirled in.

Berger cookies have been a staple for the people of Baltimore for more than 75 years and the inspiration a local pie shop took to originally create this pie. Although I couldn’t figure out their exact recipe, this indulgent delight is pretty close.
