This weeks recipe (months?) is for a yummy summer pie. It's super easy and can be made for just about any occasion. It really can. It's s'more pie and can be "cooked" on the grill, in the oven, in a camp fire (if you're careful) or in the microwave if it's in an appropriate dish. It's supposed to be the pie version of s'mores and less sticky. I'm still not convinced that it's less sticky, but it is easier to make. I originally found the recipe sometime last summer on some kind of paper. It could have been a magazine or who knows what. I didn't cut the recipe out because, well, it has marshmallows, chocolate chips and graham crackers. How hard is it to remember that?! We tried it out this past weekend and it was super yummy.
Graham Crackers, broken up into small pieces
First, layer the graham cracker pieces on the bottom of the pie tin. Then layer marshmallows and chocolate chips. Here's a picture of the first layer.
Follow with a second round of graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate chips. I only did 2 layers, but it would be pretty easy to do 3 layers since they shrink during "cooking". This is a picture of the 2 layers of ingredients.
After you have layered until you just can't layer anymore, pop it in your grill, oven, fire, microwave or whatever and let it "cook" until the marshmallows are slightly browned and the chocolate is melted. Here is our final product.
I've only made this pie the one time, but when I make it again I think I'll do more marshmallows and chocolate. And possibly another layer because I was surprised by how much in shrunk. Plus, the point of the s'more is the marshmallow and chocolate. The graham cracker is just the means of getting the important ingredients into your mouth. Clearly we need more marshmallow and chocolate.
