Chocolate S'mores Pie ready for oven
My blog is
six five years old! (my husband called from overseas to inform me that I failed my math, so embarrass!) I created the blog in May 2006, my first post was on 24 August 2006. It started as a personal journal then documentary of my son daily life, eventually it becomes what it is today. I've written 261 blog posts, most of my posts captures my daily life and emotion. I would like to thank those who left your lovely comments and providing links to my blog. Thank you for your support throughout these years, and also thank you for sending your warm regards and hugs during days when I especially need it.
Chocolate S'mores Pie from Dinner with Julie, is a yummy sinful treat. I baked this easy pie using ready made shortcrust pastry sheet to celebrate my blog
6th 5th birthday!
Recipe adapted from Dinner With Julie with changes to the crust.
Place a piece of pastry sheet into the baking pan, cut excessive. Blind bake in a 190C oven for 8 mins, or until golden brown around the edges of crust.
Filling:1 cup whipping cream
8 oz. good-quality bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1 large egg
2-3 cups mini marshmallows
Preheat oven to 190C. Bring the cream to a simmer in a small saucepan, and put the chocolate in a bowl. Pour the cream over the chocolate and whisk until smooth. Whisk in the egg and salt. Pour into the crust.
Bake for 25 minutes, until filling is softly set but still trembles slightly in the middle when you gently shake it. Cool completely on a wire rack.
Pile the marshmallows on top of the cooled filling and preheat the oven. Bake the pie for a minute – it browns quickly, so check it after 30 seconds – until the marshmallows are golden brown (My marshmallows didn't brown) Cool for 10 minutes before slicing with a sharp knife dipped in hot water, then wiped dry (do this before you cut each slice).
