When you think of chocolate pie, you're thinking of this pie - decadent, luxurious, fudgey chocolate filling baked into a light and flaky crust, topped with homemade whipped cream and chocolate shavings. This is no meringue, no French silk business, no pudding pie. This is homemade chocolate pie as it was meant to be. As with all good things, this pie takes time and effort (mostly the effort of waiting for it to chill before serving!), but once you try it, you'll never go back.
The following is a guest article written by Alix Radford , of CuteandDelicious.com . I'm here to introduce you to an awesome pie that is super-easy to make and wonderfully delicious. This peanut butter cream pie is a lovely balance of a flaky crust, a sweet peanut-butter filling, and a fluffy coconut-cream topping. It takes a bit of advanced preparation but nothing more than putting a few cans of coconut milk in the fridge the night before. You'll want to make sure that you use the full-fat coconut milk, as this is what makes the dense coconut cream topping.
With a bucket full of fresh cherries and a package of premade pie crust in the fridge, my kids and I had plans to make a batch of Homemade Cherry Poptarts. But, my clever 7-year-old, Alyssa, had an even better idea, “How ’bout we make little poptarts and put them on a stick like Cinderella?” ‘Cinderella’ here isn’t the fairy tale princess, it’s my Alyssa’s favorite blogger (and one of mine)–the delightsome Angie Dudley of Bakerella–creator of the original cupcake pop, and author of the new book Cake Pops . Bakerella’s original idea for a cupcake-on-a-stick was an overnight sensation, landing her a guest spot on the Martha Stewart Show, and a mulitude of other incredible opportunities to collaborate with top-notch companies.
I’m not really much of a dessert person. By the time I have finished a meal I rarely have room for something sweet. I don’t bake, partly because I don’t like measuring out ingredients to precise quantities and I don’t have the patience. But at times, I do like to try my hand at something a little less taxing at the same time as producing something pretty tasty — I’m lazy like that. A couple of months ago I was wasting away my work day by browsing my friends’ status messages on Facebook and I came across one of my friends who I went to school with in England, it read “KT is baking her famous £20 banoffee pie!”
This post is for my husband. My husband is devoted to Banana Cream Pie. It is far and away his favourite dessert, over chocolate in any form.
Nutter Butter- Peanut Butter Pie If you hadn’t heard already, our food blogging friend Jennie lost her husband Mikey last week. It was a sudden and unexpected loss. The kind of loss that is unfair in every way.
