Pie

Postby KSC2-303 » Tue Jan 06, 2009 10:43 am

This idea jumped into my mind one day so I decided to make it a reality. Entirely from scratch except the crust. No Cool Whips or nothing and no recipe.

I guess we'll call it Almond Joy pie for lack of a better name.

Pretty damn good and by my calculations tipping the calorie scale at a whopping 500 a slice.

Yeah, this will do it. My mom bought a frozen pecan pie fro Christmas that was 500 for an 1/8 of a pie. It was good, but damn if that isn't a lot. I wanted to top it. I think I could have if I made the coconut layer thicker.

By the way, raw coconut mixed with sweetened condesed milk is ridiculously close to Almond Joy filling. I was just missing a thickening agent of some kind cause it got a tad runny after it was sliced. I'm thinking I'll bake the shell with the bottom layer before adding the pudding and cream next time.

None! I just mixed together coconut and condensed milk. That milk is already like syrup as you know. Mixed with a cup of coconut made a pretty dense paste so I figured it didn't need anything else. Maybe when I poured the hot pudding over it it melted a bit?

It was delicious all by itself, but it was only being held together by the coconut I guess. I'm not saying it was flowing out of the pie like water, but after being sliced and having the remainder of the pie in the fridge for a few hours, there was a nice pool of condensed milk on the bottom of the pan when I went in for another piece.

I don't know what you could use to keep it solid, but I'd certainly take a piece of that pie.

That looks pretty decadent. Seems like it'd go well with a nice cup of French roast after dinner, or maybe just skip dinner and go straight to the pie and coffee.
