Kali submitted another one. This time a PIE! (Paula WATCH OUT!)
I'm glad you liked the beef and cabbage soup recipe. A lot of my recipes definitely are not kosher, I like ham and I like cream of something soups with some of my meat dishes. But I noticed you don't have very many pie recipes, so I thought you might like this one. It's definitely dairy.
About 30 odd years ago my grandmother attended a luncheon where the hostess served a very light and delicious chocolate pie for dessert. Helen was happy to share the recipe... no baking and only three (3) ingredients!! now how simple can you get?!? I was living with my grandparents at the time, so a few days later Grandmom and I decided to make the pie. Oh dear!! We ended up with chocolate soup pie! Fortunately, a few hours in the freezer got the "soup" to "set", but although it tasted just fine, it was missing the light texture it was meant to have. I realized that one rather key step had been omitted from the preparation instructions... cooling the melted chocolate. I have since made this pie many times and it's turned out perfectly.
- bowl and mixer
- double boiler OR glass microwave bowl
- Prepared graham cracker pie crust
- 1/2 lb Hershey's chocolate with almond bar
- 1/2 pint whipping cream
- Break chocolate bar into pieces and melt, either by:
- A double boiler on the stove top OR:
- In a glass bowl in the microwave - uncovered at 50% power for about 3 - 4 1/2 mins, stirring after 2 1/2 mins.
The key to a light and fluffy pie is to make sure that the melted chocolate is cooled enough that it doesn't "melt" the whipped cream. Can also be made with a plain chocolate bar (for those who dislike almonds), and I suppose a fruit/nut-type chocolate bar could also be used.
Let's see. If I give this a one, Paula will go berserk and Paula and Beth will go on strike. Mmmmm... decisions - decisions. Nope a Two it is cause well because I want to keep my head on my shoulders and it does involve nuking or melting on a stove and timing. (We also have to keep Paula and Beth happy!) Before we get to the pie - a few words from moi! - Kali you will find, and I say this with pride that a great many people who submit recipes here are not kosher nor Jewish. It is amazing. So feel free to submit anything you like - (O.K. none of the ham or frogs legs...sheesh!)
And now I got news for all of you, especially Kali. The pie above is Dairy...BUT guess what? Use a grade A chocolate which is Bittersweet and usually thus not made with milk products and a non-dairy Whipped Cream and Voila! - Parve Pie! (But you have to like that type of chocolate of course!)
