Baking date: October 18, 2015
My husband is always complaining that I make so many things for other people, and nothing for him. He barked recently, “I can’t even get a chocolate pudding pie.”
So, for the man who complains because
- I don’t put walnuts in my chocolate chip cookies,and
- gooey butter cookies are gross, and
- I put frosting on a perfectly good sugar cookie
up yours “here you go honey. I’ll see your chocolate pudding pie and give you one better – a French Silk Pie!”
The inspiration recipe was found on Martha Stewart’s website. Full disclosure – I used a store bought graham cracker crust that my husband picked out. None of that froo-froo homemade crust for him.
The pie itself was very easy to make. I offered to make the whipped cream also, but my husband is a fan of the kind you get to spray out of a can. Weirdo.
The pie turned out great – my son said it tasted like eating frosting (and what’s wrong with that?!).
I actually made two pies. The second I topped with Cool Whip dyed orange, and decorated to look like a basketball. It was for my oldest son Alex’s friend Jacob who broke his elbow just as basketball season has started. He’s in a cast and out a few weeks. I’m sure a yummy pie will help him heal faster!
